On a Cold Winter's Night



A cold winter's night at home... 
I'm just getting ready to make a pot of cocoa, put on my jammies, and read The Life Giving Home.

What do you like to do on a cold winter's night?

...doing what I can with what I've got where I am 
on a short shoestring budget!

  3. Hi Laura,I follow your blog....live on a farm in Indiana...lots of animals and gardens. I often read in the evenings, or sew or knit. I enjoy reading of your life and invite you to stop in and visit ours at Windermere Farm, Shelbyville In on FB. Take care, Trudy Neill

  4. We batten down the hatches here, as Storm Imogen has hit S W England. Stay inside, put the heating on and enjoy a lovely hot drink together.

  6. Lovely...
    I love cozy nights like that.
    I enjoy putting my jammies on early, curling up on the sofa with a throw blanket and a latte with whipped cream. : )

  8. How wonderful! I like to make cocoa for the children and me. Although, this year has been so light on snow.....I miss it.

    I hope you enjoy Sally's new book. I've been wanting to order it, but it isn't in the budget at this time.

    Have a wonderful evening,

  10. That's one thing I love about winter...you can put your jammies on really early! I like your plan too. I love to catch up on thing on a cold winter night, a good magazine, letter writing, embroidery work or a good movie with a cup of tea.
    Enjoy and keep warm.

  11. I've been hearing a lot of good things about this book. I think I might need to go buy it.
    Some nights, I like to craft, catch up on blogs, color, on occasion read or I curl up and watch a movie. Perfect nights! ☺
    I hope you are doing well, Laura.
    Hugs, Amy

  12. Hugs to you, too Amy. Tonight I'm updating some Ebay listings, answering emails, checking facebook, and I just might fit in a little reading right before bed.

    Blessings!

    I was fortunate to receive the book for review, Kim. Maybe your library will order it if you ask?
    Enjoy your winter evenings!

  16. Sounds wonderful.
    I too love a cup of hot chocolate [add a few marshmellos, if I have them?]..A good book , or a little sewing/crafting..
    Hope you have a wonderful week.

  17. Oh my word, is your hubs' name really LOWELL? SO IS MINE! Too odd of a name to be two bloggers' husband's name. LOL. (Get it? LOL!!!)

    I like your blog, BTW! xo

  18. I really like the quote you shared in the picture, Laura. It sounds like a book I would enjoy. Currently, putting a shovelful of coal on the fire and eating a bowl of soup is how I am spending my winter evening :-)

  19. I loved the quote you posted by Sally Clarkson! So very true.

    Your favorite cold winter night routine sounds wonderfully cozy!

    Thanks for sharing. :-)

Hello! I love it when y'all talk back!

I read all the comments I receive. I answer as many as I can.

Right now, I'm healing from breast cancer surgery on October 20th and dealing with the side effects of chemotherapy. Please understand if I don't answer. This is all new to me.

THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR PRAYING FOR ME!!!
I treasure your prayers and your comments.

If you have a question, be sure I can reach you by email or subscribe to the comments.

Be blessed!
Laura
