winter : king of intimate delights

“O Winter! ruler of the inverted year, . . . I crown thee king of intimate delights, Fireside enjoyments, home-born happiness, And all the comforts that the lowly roof Of undisturb’d Retirement, and the hours Of long uninterrupted evening, know.” ~William Cowper

Today my daughter Andrea and my grandgirl, Maddie May, came over for tea. We spent a couple hours talking and playing (and trying to watch a movie, but Madeline wouldn’t have that…) They went home so Maddie could take a nap…Jeff and Gracie went into Minneapolis on a photography mission…and I found a few undisturbed hours to cook, write, plan this week’s menu, listen to THIS, have tea in front of the fireplace with my Mary Jane’s Farm and Victoria magazines, plan two Thanksgiving menus and take a little walk in the snow. I love days like today. Days when I can just be.

What have you been up to?
