When it's cold outside, create indoor warmth
Topic: Home environment

I can't believe that just two days ago I was outside in a T-shirt and jeans,  pruning grapevines.


Yesterday and today, a T-shirt and jeans were the first layer, covered with a hooded sweatshirt (hood up!), jacket (hood up!), snowpants, hiking boots and ski mittens. And the activity? Snow clearing with the snowthrower--feeding animals, snowshoveling... 


So it's now kind of settled down into mere frigid weather.

Time to create a cozy indoors...



 As you can see, I haven't cleared off the table with Christmas cards, so light the candle for a little warmth...






Did you notice all the snow on the porch beyond? 


Get the fireplace going. Really get a roaring fire to counteract that wind chill of ...minus 9!




 Did you get something like this for Christmas? These are called "Bath Bombs" and they similar to huge, fragranced "Fizzies" for the bath. 



Seriously, they are huge, aren't they? Each has it's own fragrance combo and  great mineral salts for your skin.


But, before you soak those aching muscles in your "Bath Bomb" bath--make a quick Quiche Lorraine (recipe is archived under "recipes"). Here's mine right out of the oven--since I am indulging I did NOT skimp on the anchovies. 



Now get into some cozy, comfortable, loungy clothes, and enjoy that quiche in front of your roaring fire...
