Cozy Weekend

This has been the view most of the long weekend. Rainy, cold, dreary.

But we have been warm and cozy inside with the fire going, lots of hot tea, and plenty to keep us busy.

Lots of candles and newspaper reading.

Some warm homey meals. (Fettuccine Parmesan with a sprinkling of nutmeg)

Fresh baked bread.

A visit from a sweet daughter and her pups.

A trip to the market for groceries and fresh blooming bulbs to bring home.

Some garden planning.

And wistful dreaming. (Courtesy of Country Living Magazine, April 2011)

A girl's gotta dream! (Love the old dish rack used for plant saucers)

So let it rain!

What are you dreaming of?


  1. Your home looks so inviting. That's exactly the weather we had here yesterday, then woke up to a blizzard this morning and now the sun is out. Go figure!

  2. Our weekend was very similar in parts. On Saturday afternoon it was sunny and windy. Michael went out to wash the car, and I started to do some gardening but decided it was too cold, so brought in firewood and coal and built a fire. I looked out the window - snow! Poor Michael came in soon thereafter, fairly frozen, but was pleased to warm up by the fire.

    Do you know what I am dreaming of? Sleeping! Can't wait to get to my bed.

    Second on my list is spring though. I haven't yet ordered seeds, but it's more than time to do so!

    Thanks for the beautiful post.

  3. Yes, February is asserting it's power all over, it seems! We are all still in hibernation but dreaming of spring! Thank you for sharing. xx

  4. I love a rainy day! (Especially when I'm home - and your home looks so warm and inviting.)

  5. Thank you, Stacy Lyn for your sweet comments. xx
