Tea cozy picture from Salihan Crafts
This morning I woke up with a cold. Pooky. -as my sweet nephew would say. =]
But alas, it is an excuse to do all sorts of cozy things. And since the weather has been rather gray and wet (yay!) It makes it feel even more cozy. *smiles*
Here's my favorite recipe for a cozy day...
I wake up hearing rain on our tin roof and smelling the freshness of the wet earth. I look at the clock, 9:27 am. *contented sigh*...it's Saturday. I reach for my fuzzy pink monster slippers and put on my warmest sweatshirt, then shuffle downstairs to see who else is stirring. The first person I see is my Mom, with slippers on feet and coffee in hand. She greets me with a "Good morning" and a kiss. Then our dog Jebbers, wagging his tail so hard he can hardly walk over to me to give me a 'hug' and to look up into my face and ask, "Can we go play right now!?" So, I promise him we will later. Next, it's to the kitchen for a nice hot cup of Creme de la Earl Grey sweetened with a little honey. Then I sit down in front of a cozy fire with my tea and my Bible and thank God for giving me the blessing of life, home, family and the smell of bacon frying on the stove. Without Jesus, I wouldn't be able to enjoy anything, simple or great. Then I see my sisters faces and am greeted with a great idea or an inside joke they had been thinking of all night. My Mom turns on the Little Women soundtrack and everyone feels that all is right with the world. Then we sit down to breakfast and discuss our plans for the day, hopefully they'll include a walk when the rain lets up, afternoon tea, working on items to sell at the market we'll be participating in in October and playing some music later on. Of course, these are all possible plans but nothing is really fixed for certain. We could always decide to do something entirely different... it is a Saturday after all...
I hope you are all feeling 'cozy' today, as I said, I have a cold so I will most likely spend most of the day taking vitamins and scrubbing salt on the throat and hopefully brainstorming about the Bend Indoor Markets that is coming up next weekend (Sept. 25th and 26th). We, or Pretty Wit rather, got invited to participate in it! We're so excited! We have signed up for the first weekend in October and have been working on all sorts of things to sell.
