“Ah! There is nothing like staying at home, for real comfort.” - Jane Austen (1775-1817) English Novelist and Published Author
It’s the season of warm sweaters, wooly socks, slippers and boots. (Everyone loves boots right?!) 😉 It's also the time to drink hot beverages; tea, coffee (with Bailey’s) 😉 hot chocolate, ciders and tasty treats. 😌 So soothing and delicious. 😋
With the cold weather and the covid situation, you have the perfect excuse; it’s an ideal time to stay inside.
You can light the fireplace, or “put another log on the fire” 😆 “and boil up a pot of tea”..
did you sing the lyrics in your head just now? 😆 🎤 🎼 (loosely paraphrased from Waylon Jennings and The Outlaws tune), the original was “Throw Another Log on the Fire” sung by Jim Reeves album “Songs to Warm my Heart.”
You deserve a break, yes you!...turn on the kettle, grab your favourite mug, warm your hands, relax in your favourite comfy chair, wrap yourself in a cozy blanket, curl up with a good book and listen to music. Imagine that feeling you will feel, being mesmerized by the glowing flames, sipping your cuppa and savouring your special moments! Blissful #metime and #selfcare
Tea is an excellent option with loads of healthy benefits.
Here are eight reasons for you:
Drinking tea and enjoying time alone (or with your friends, when possible...socially-distanced or virtually) is beneficial for your health and psychologically comforting.
#icymi a few times in previous posts, I mentioned our ongoing renos. On that note, (🎶 pun intended) 😉 I am SO looking forward to some alone time with a hot cuppa and no more subtrades and contractors in my home with the loud noises!! No more trips to the hardware stores. I should have a “reserved” parking stall at Home Depot, Rona and Lowe’s; I’ve been there so often for the last several weeks! My truck is almost on “auto pilot” at this point. The renos are almost done! ✅ 💃
In case you’re interested, here are the lyrics. Fitting for this season of winter, warmth and wanting to be together with loved ones, imho 💕 🤗
“Throw another log on the fire
Keep my golden memories aglow
I don't see the face of my loved one
When the love's a burning low.
Throw another log on the fire
Bring back all the sweetest days I've known
When our hearts were young in the springtime
And her love was mine alone.
There's nothing left but the embers
Springtime seems so long ago
Throw another log on the fire
Keep my golden memories aglow.”
Yours in friendship and health. 😊
