My friend Jessica wrote the post that inspired this one.
This November morning is gorgeous! Bright and blustery and the most beautiful golden light. Like so many do at this time of year, my thoughts are turning to nestling in, getting cozy, creating warmth and a feeling of contentment in my home.
I'm thinking of....
* a downy comforter and thick pillows * a big pile of magazines and a long evening at home * a purring cat on my lap * a big stack of books * a good pen and my journal * a nice piece of chocolate * super-warm slipper socks * chicken and rice * the scarf knitted for me by a girlfriend * warm cookies and cold, cold milk * quiet piano music as I drift into a nap * the memory foam we added to our mattress - heaven * long hugs * the first fire of the season * warm sun on a chilly day * comfort island * rich cello music * painting Sloane's fingers and toes * writing Christmas cards * bundling up in my gorgeous pink coat, the one I get compliments on every time I wear it * a massage * peppermint scented lotion *Jeffrey's Carhartt * soft, soft purple mittens * the moment when the car's heater finally starts to warm you * hot cocoa * apple crisp * switching to my winter lipstick: deeper, redder * knowing that Christmas is coming, but ready to enjoy Thanksgiving first * fleece * hot homemade soup in the ski lodge * the first beef stew of the season * our deep seated, cuddly sofa * a good night's sleep with the thermostat turned low * Scoopy - Sloane's special blankie friend * sweater weather *
