Last night the temperatures dropped and the winds began there little dance, softly stirring against the window until within in a few minutes it reached its full force and withdrew only to crash against the window once more. It was like a wave constantly pounding the shore. As I looked out of the window, a mix of ice/snow began to fall and joined the wind to remind us that the elements are changeable and powerful.
Overnight the winds have dried up the puddles, leaving in its place a little ice but no trace of the snow that fell.
As I look once again out of the window, the snow is falling softly and now creating a wonderful white blanket on the ground. The stove is already lit and the flames are dancing behind the glass ensuring that we are warm and cosy in our little cottage.
I have just made two varieties of soup so that they can be warmed on the stove in the event of a power cut. Leek and sweet potato with a hint of nutmeg...
...tomato and basil.
A loaf of wholemeal bread has just been taken out of the breadmaker to go along with it.
As I look out of the window the snow has stopped and Mother Natures white blanket once again removed. I am so thankful that I have no reason to leave the cosiness of this cottage today instead I will admire Gods bounty from the window. The perfect sort of day for sitting by the stove with a crochet project around my knees and a good film. What are your plans for today?
See you soon.
