Cold weather comfort food

The cold weather is moving, but that does not mean it’s going away. It’s time for some cold weather comfort food.

This has been a favorite of our family for years: Pag Bracken’s Stay-abed-stew:

It’s cold out there!

Winter has arrived and with it, the cold. Yesterday afternoon the temperature dropped over ten degrees in an hour. My sixteen-month-old grandson got his first jacket since, for the next few days at least, his usual hooded sweatshirt will not be sufficient. My husband pulled out his leather jacket and the grocery store was full of patrons wearing calf high boots, stocking caps and knitted scarves. I stuck to a long-sleeved turtle-neck beneath a sweatshirt. It was not a wise decision.

The photograph is near where we used to live in Nebraska. We have no snow where I live today, but I remember it well!

So wherever you are, I wish you warmth, both inside and out.

Until next time…”

Photography–Misty Morning

Misty morning photography is a special pleasure of mine. The world beyond your own little space just drops away, and your focus has to be on the things near to you. Sometimes, I think, we need a misty morning for our lives as well, when the outside world and its cares fade away and we focus on those closest to us and see the beauty there.
