January 27: Care for the careworn soul

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.

  1. tulips and brownies are my go-to cure for the winter blues. i bought peruvian lilies on the 31st of december and they are still fresh and lovely thanks to the cold. almost can't believe it. nothing cheers me like fresh flowers.
