Snow Day



This is my kind of snow day.

Gently sifting white confetti.

Tranquil.

Peaceful.


Made from scratch beef stock.

Liquid love.

Simmering.

Its warm aroma fills our little home.


I'm content.


And more blessed than a woman has a right to be.


"If you surrender completely to the moments 
as they pass, you live more richly those moments."

  5. So many winter scenes this week - very nice one here as well. Oh how I remember my mother's home-made stews in the winter. I'm the only one who eats soup at home now, so I stick to the canned stuff - ugh!

    1. Thanks for popping in, Nicki. Soup is our mainstay for lunches. There are some respectable canned soups now, but nothing that beats homemade. Sometimes I freeze individual portions for later. Maybe that could work for you. ? Cheers.
