Warms my Little Heart
We are sitting snug in our house while a Winter storm rages outside. The family is all home and school is already canceled for tomorrow. Later this week, the high temperature of the day will be ZERO! Brrr....
Here are some things warm my heart this time of year:
Going to bed -we have a heated mattress-cover, which we turn on an hour or so before bedtime. Crawling into those warm flannel sheets and snuggling under the down comforter is pure Bliss.
Padding around the house in thick, comfy socks. Also warming my cold feet on my husband and children.
Curling up on the leather couch in a soft, fluffy throw blanket.
These coasters, given to me by a dear friend. This time of year they are constantly being used to hold my favorite body-warming drinks (strong coffee with 1/2 and 1/2, Irish Breakfast tea with sugar and milk, or a mug of hot, milky chai).
Taking a cat nap with an actual cat.
A roaring fire. On the very coldest of evenings, we'll build a wood fire in the living room and sit close by, reading or playing a family game.
And today my husband called me to make sure I was safe driving home from picking up the children. There's a big heart warmer for me.
How are you keeping warm this Winter?
