Cozy Days and Hot Porridge

Good morning! I just love this picture. Makes me want to spend the day in a cozy cabin somewhere, wrapped in a quilt by the fire, watching the snow fall outside. I’m in a hibernating sort of mood, so I’m wearing my favorite granny sweater and indulging in a big bowl of hot millet porridge with coconut. Mmm. It smells heavenly.

How was your weekend? I was so happy to spend time with my rellies and laughing myself sick at my craaaaazy brothers and cousins. We ate entirely too many gummy bears and butter tarts, talked far too late, and had a grand time.

It is good to be home again, happy and comfy in my own little space. Good to have all the dishes done and a big pot of homemade beef vegetable soup to eat this week. Good to be one year older and have the dearest people in the world to love and be loved by.

What do you like to do when you’re feeling hibernatey?
