I don't mind January.
I know some people really loathe it. For me it always goes past quite quickly, and I never have the chance to be drawn into the January 'blues'.
This week has been a cosy one. The weather has been a mixed old bag. One moment, the greyest of grey skies. Candles on, lamps on, blankets galore to snuggle under. The next.......bright sunshine, and the feeling of spring bouncing down the path with a basket of sunshiny flowers.
The scent of the fully opened hyacinths have intoxicated the room. They smell heavenly, well, if you like the smell of hyacinths that is.
The supermarket stocking the first daffodil bunches. Ahhhhhhh, it's an incredibly joyous thing, to watch these open to light up a room. I adore their scent too. Again, if you like that scent.
On the cosy days; I have snuggled, and immersed myself in a spot of crochet. A luxury at the moment.
On the sunshiny days, I have been productive. I have sorted and cleaned and sorted and sorted. I have that very nice clear head feeling. It won't last for long, so I am enjoying it whilst I have it.
I have baked a little. Ahem, actually, you can't really call it 'baked'. The minimal amount of baking to try and produce something. If it turns out ok I may take a pic, it may look horrid, it sounds weird, it also may be just so tasty, there will be nothing left to photograph once the bears get their mitts on it. We shall see.
I was frivolous today and bought a mag to read with my coffee, whilst I waited for the said 'baking' to complete.
I am still in love with my 'cuppa' porridges. In fact, I think I have become infatuated with them. What a fab idea. I have a weakness for porridge and usually eat way too much. Porridge in a cup suits me to a 'T'. I am having fun adding my own flavourings. Usually lashings of cinnamon, but I discovered a madagascan vanilla grinder and I feel giddy with excitement at the possibilities. Yes....I am one saddo. Little things an all......
I hope your week is a great one so far.
