So on this grey and rainy Sunday morning I am looking around and feeling quite content. I'm in the middle of a great mystery series by Julia Spencer-Fleming. Am I the only one who discovers a new series and devours them, one after the other, without picking up another author in between?
One of my favourite places to curl up with a good book (or, as more often is the case, my Kindle), is this window seat.
As you can see from the bags tucked in the corner, it's also a favourite spot for knitting. This is one of those rare, treasured days without a single thing written on my calendar or "to do" list that needs attending to. Translation - lots of knitting time! I'm just getting started on a couple new Fair Isle projects. Here's a peak.
I'm quite sure lemon curd tastes better in January than any other month of the year.
Especially when it's slathered over some scones that are hot out of the oven. Oops. It looks like an extra glob accidentally fell onto my plate. :-)
Accompanied, of course, by a cup of tea with a spoonful of local honey stirred into it.
I am only a couple weeks into my year of hygge, and I can already see it was the perfect word choice. It's making me look around and think, I mean really think, about my attitude and approach to each day. Normally January is a month that leaves me feeling deflated, but I'm hoping as I try to incorporate this concept of hygge into my days that at the end of the month I will feel every bit as hopeful and positive as I did at the beginning.
