Small Joys

  • First sleepy glance out the rain-spattered window: a many-layered cloudy landscape of sky with a tiny bit of sunshine peeking through.
  • Adding milk froth to my usual black coffee.
  • Watching my kids dance around the kitchen to Bruce Springsteen singing "O Mary Don't You Weep".  They were using carrots and leeks for guitars and fiddles!
  • Helping the three boys wisely spend their Christmas money on Amazon.  I think I always knew we were going to end up with three sets of miniature Tintin figures!
  • Enjoying our California girl's last post, about her New Year's resolutions.
  • Planning two new recipe posts: gingerbread cake, and haricot bean soup. Watch this space.
  • Thinking about how nice it was to see our friends yesterday. Ruth and her family stopped by for a few hours, which flew past too quickly!
  • Feeling thankful, once again, that we're not ill during these holidays, unlike last year  and the year before!
  • Still wearing my pajamas at eleven in the morning.
  • The invention of italics...

  1. LOL, me too, still in my dressing gown Erin! Drinking tea and beginning the 'big pack' ready to move (still no date but it seemed sensible to start!). Glad you had a lovely time - can't wait for your bean soup recipe! See you soon! Jen x
