We are surely in the nesting phase of Winter, cold, wet and more cold.......
The kind of cold that makes you want to snuggle inside, and cocoon from the outside world.
Stay warm and safe dear friends.
"Surely everyone is aware of the divine pleasures which attend a wintry fireside; candles at four o’clock, warm hearthrugs, tea, a fair tea-maker, shutters closed, curtains flowing in ample draperies to the floor, whilst the wind and rain are raging audibly without."
~ Thomas De Quincey 1796
