"God helg !"
Yes, it's been a good holiday season, as my little Swedish table runner says. This morning, though it is a cold finish to New Year 2014's first week.
To think that others farther north are experiencing temperatures even colder just blows my mind. It was so chilly this morning in our house that my fingers were chilled by the time I'd done my morning routine of emptying the dishwasher and making coffee. When I poured the coffee into my mug and held it close with both hands, my fingertips felt that chilly burn that one normally feels after being outside in the cold for a time. What's wrong with this picture? I was standing in my kitchen! Brrrrr! And it felt like that thermometer was inside the kitchen instead of outside the sliding door! LOL!
Thankfully, there's plenty of wood stacked for the stove fires (in the kitchen wood catch and on the back porch) and I have no plans to go outside today. I plan to make a warm stew and bake some cookies for my husband. Keeping the stove and the oven going will throw a bit more heat and perhaps, by the end of the day, the house will be back up to a comfortable 68 degrees Farenheit !
Meanwhile, the dogs snooze in a sunny patch on the floor and I curl on the couch under a woolen blanket!
God helg! , which also means have a good weekend.
