What is there to blog about...?
I rather like these mid-winter days. They are very slow... and very quiet. Not much to "write home about", though... Daylight is still rather scarce, and I try to make the most of it... going for walks, doing the house work (I am not very good at it after darkness falls) and stitching a bit (as in previous entry).
Any greenery in January is most welcome, and it is up to the house plants to provide this. Even though our winter so far could be called a 'green' one too, as snow seems to be as scarce as the aforementioned daylight. (Notice the icy paths to the henhouse, though, indicating that we have indeed had some snow at some point).
So how do I spend these sort winter days (apart from the aforementioned housework, cooking, stitching and walks, that is)?
Let's just say that the day starts with tea... quite a few cups of it. (I know, I know... I keep showing the same cups and pots over and over again, as one reader pointed out the other day, suggesting it was time for me get some new ones... Only I like the ones I have ;-)
The book cabinet is full of books, many of which are still unread. So this quiet time is perfect for catching up on some reading...
... preferably by the fire, which seems to burn all day long, keeping us warm and cosy, no matter what the weather might be like outside.
The evenings draw in early, and I tend to long for my cosy, comfy bed earlier than in the lighter summer months.
So what about blogging...? None of this makes for interesting reading, as there really is very little to 'show and tell'. So maybe a little break is in order... until something more interesting comes along, that is...?
