Being of solid Canadian stock, I try not to mind the winter weather, but today the cold and the snow and a variety of events conspired to get the better of me. Since I'm not really a fan of spending my only day off moping, I eventually just togged up and headed out for provisions.
I bought some new beeswax candles to light in the middle of the afternoon. (In a fabulous repurposed tin baking mould from Sherrie, isn't it neat?)
I also stocked up on the ingredients for homemade granola, which is in the oven now, redolent of maple, cinnamon and ginger.
These tulips cost a whopping $10, but sometimes you have to do what you have to do. They practically glow in the dark.
Home again, I dug around and found a bit of sunshine in my yarn stash. These bright yellow socks and a variegated rainbow toque on the needles mean a bit of sun even when the clouds roll in.
That's better! Hope that some colour (and some chocolate) found its way into your day today.
