winter evenings

When you can't shake off the cold (and lets face it, that's most days in our neck of the woods), dim the lights, and light candles, lots and lots of candles. there's something about visually seeing the flame that gives you a warm and cosy feeling.
(oh yeah, switching on the heating and consecutive cups of hot drinks also helps).

....the season to be jolly

:: Fresh fallen snow, to play, roll, and build with
::evenings spent indoors, reading, quietly to ourselves and to each other
:: hot cups of tea wrapped in our hands, throughout the day
:: home made cakes with hot custard, on a cold, wet evening
:: evenings spent in candle light, helping us forget the bitter cold outside
:: and soup, warm, fulfilling and healing

the things that help me get through winter
