THE END OF THE GOLDEN WEATHER

Yes, this week the weather gods decided that we had had it so good for so long that they would introduce winter with all her faults.  We seem to have skipped past autumn this year straight into winter.

This week we have had torrential rain and hailstones battering on the outside of our house and we have been pushed to fire up the central heating and light our log fire.

We continue to be grateful for the fact that we do have a warm and comfy house and we can have the warmth we need in winter.  How many people in this world are without these basic needs.  But the gratitude doesn’t stop us thinking longingly about those warm summer days that we enjoyed such a short time ago.

“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

  1. I’ll sit here fingers crossed that maybe you’ll have an Indian Summer to prepare you for Winter rather than diving straight into it.
    xxx Huge Hugs xxx

  2. David, thank you. You always say the right thing.

    And the hugs are reciprocated from our side of the world to you XX

  3. Time to pick up on the warmer hobbies.. knitting, sewing, reading, writing… the ones you can do near the cosiness of a warm fire. 🙂

  4. Please do keep warm and cosy. Love the quote although I am no friend to winter.

  5. Love the quote about winter! I need to copy that down and save it and pull it out when I need it. Your post made me smile because it reminded me how far apart we are–seasons away!– and yet we can still connect with our blogging. How I’ve missed you! I need to be more focused and consistent with my blogging so I can enjoy you again.

  6. Me too. There are not enough hours in the days – how did we ever find time to work AND look after our families? Hope you and your George are well. 🙂

So what's on your mind?
