Sweet Little Things About Me - My favourite things about Winter

I'm joining in with Lisa's Meme this week-Sweet Little Things about me. This week the theme is 'My favourite things about Winter.'  There isn't a lot that could be called good about Winters where I live. It is usually endless days of fog and freezing temperatures.  But there are small pleasures that you can only treat yourself to in the Winter. We learn to welcome and appreciate a beautiful sunny day like today. I can light the stove in the kitchen and have endless hot water, a kettle that is always ready for tea and coffee, slow cooked casseroles and soups and Roasts in the oven. Scones for afternoon tea. Opening the oven door and standing in the warmth is a simple and sometimes necessary pleasure.

Pulling a Quilt out and snuggling up with the dog and a good book on a wet and miserable afternoon.
Nanna naps.

 Coats and Scarves 

Do you have favourite things about Winter where you are. Join in here and tell us or visit and see what everyone's favourite things about Winter are.

Oh my I'm loving all those sweet things about you Jackie! Hmmm...cept maybe the roast meats!! lol. But the vegies! YUMM.
Especially loving the stove and all that goes with it! I have a good friend who lives in MacLean and at the first hint of cool she's got the wood stove and the fireplace on the go. She can't wait for them to start in winter. lol.
Thanks for that gorgeous little peek into your home too. You have some wonderfully vintage things all around you. ♥
