Raindrops on roses . . .


These are a few of my favourite things.

Quiet nights in.  Just Todd, the dog and myself.  Cosy and warm, perhaps with a good film on the telly, contentment . . . 


Fairy lights.   We have them strung over our bed and wound amongst the rails.  We have them hanging over our lounge drapes.  We have them draped on our mantle, tucked away behind the cherubs.  I love fairy lights.

Stormy days from the inside looking out.  Nothing makes you appreciate home sweet home  more than being tucked up safe indoors  . . . out of the wind and the rain and snow, and a loved one to share that feeling with . . . .be they man or beast.

A cosy throw to wrap up in.  Cocooning  . . .

A kettle for boiling  . . .  water . . . so you can make warming drinks like herbals teas, hot chocolates . . . or cup-a-soup.  Chicken noodle please.

Scented candles that smell like home sweet home  . . . with ginger and spice, cinnamon and nutmeg . . .  and wood fire smoke . . .

Warm fluffy slippers to keep my feet cosy . . .

Oversized sweaters  . . . they are like little knitted mumus . . . .

Someone to curl up with.   Todd.  Mitzie.  A warm body will do, so long as they don't snore too loudy.

A good book to get stuck in to  . . . . any suggestions?


Can you feel it?  The season of canoodle is upon us.  I love it . . . 💗💗💗  What are some of your favourite canoodling things?

  4. Perfect day for us to snuggle. Freezing winds, snow on the hills around. Time for chicken soup, knitting and a very hot fire.

  5. Thanks Suzan! I am so sorry you have to put up with such hot temps. That is why I would and could never live where you do. Heat and me do not mix together very well. xoxo

    Hope you had a great day also Pam. xoxo

    I will have to check out some of those books Monique. I have read some of them also. Carrie and Debbie, very sad. :-( xoxo

    Sounds perfectly cozy Linda! xoxo

  6. I think I would choose for mine; most of yours. I love to cuddle up with my hubby and Sammy and watch TV or read a good work. We don't get a lot of time to do this. That being said; we do try to do just that once in a while. Thanks for sharing your list; it helped me know what I want to be doing.
    Blessings and hugs~
