A Cozy Sort of Day

I woke early this morning and crept out to the kitchen to let Bear have a rare sleep in. I put the kettle on as the sky began to lighten, revealing dark clouds and a beautifully overcast day.

After brewing tea and a cup of raw hot cocoa, I lit a candle and added orange essential oil to my burner and pretty soon the whole kitchen smelled of citrus and vanilla with a hint of chocolate. Mmm.

All that deliciousness put me in full blown domestic mood and pretty soon I was bustling about washing dishes, organizing my pantry (it’s gorgeous!!), and getting chili fixings in the crockpot. Laundry was started and bread dough set to rise and then I got to sit down with my cuppas and rest, luxuriating in the silence of a cloudy day.

I love these sorts of days, days that seem tailor made for contented puttering. No pressure, no deadlines, no rushing about from one commitment to another. It does my heart good.

Soon friends will arrive for lunch and a fun afternoon of medieval projects: wood-working, sewing, and brewing up some healing concoctions from centuries past. I’m looking forward to it. πŸ™‚

What are you looking forward to this weekend? xo

A Cloudy Day Out with Bear » Rambling Tart - […] I love rainy days, cloudy days, stormy days, mostly because they’re so rare and precious in our part of Australia. So Bear and I made the most of it with a day out, just the two of us. […]
