“Winter is the time for comfort, for good food and warmth, for the touch of a friendly hand and for a talk beside the fire: it is the time for home.”
~ Edith Sitwell
Winter arrived overnight at our farm. Brrrr! So cold this morning.
And this morning after my meditation I popped back into bed to warm up and a small dog jumped up on the bed and snuggled down right on top of my legs. He was warm so I left him there and went back to sleep. But when I woke up and was ready to get out of bed he refused to move. ‘Too cold, Mum,’ he protested, grizzling at me for disturbing him. Too cold even though he is dressed in his winter coat, and should be toasty warm. Poor Rufous isn’t much of a tough farm dog. He’s a cuddle sook!
I managed to ease my legs out from under him and he stayed put. He’d still be there now except for Ben yelling the magic word…
In a flurry of fur young Rufous was at the back door, ready for the happiest part of the day – food.
So I’m late blogging today because of puppies, comfort and life.
Now for me a day of acupuncture and self-care, friends sitting around the fireplace writing with me over cups of tea, and cauldrons of soup on the stove. I’m still recovering from this wretched flu but I’m making progress back to being well thankfully. I’m sure puppy cuddles have helped immensely.
Wishing you a day of cosiness too! Much love, Nicole ❤ xoxo
