Chilled Sunday...

Coffee just fills the kitchen with a comforting smell....Mmmm

On Friday night about 11pm, we had the biggest hail shower I have EVER experienced.  It lasted a good 20 - 30 mins!?! and ended with a very dramatic and very FINAL flash of lightening and loud clap of thunder!  When it was over - we were left with about 3cm's of small white balls EVERYWHERE.  Sometime in the middle of the night we had a light dusting of snow too - so we awoke on Saturday morning to a thin blanket of white - all be it mostly ICE and not actual snow!

Last night we walked to some friends - or should I say slid/skidded to some friends for dinner... it was quite an amusing journey! was definitely a Sunday to just brew some nice coffee, and spend a little time in the kitchen.
Home made muesli!
I made our Muesli for the week...

Baked a gooey gingerbread, and had a stew bubbling very slowly in the oven all by 3 o'clock!  Very satisfying .
The fire is now lit and I am not moving away from it (we are due more snow tonight)

Happy Sunday everyone - Stay safe in the snow if you have some!

I can smell the coffee! The weather is always so much more dramatic in Cornwall. xxx

It's cold here, also. 20 degrees F, but with winds of 25 to 40 mph. BRRRRRRRR! Isn't it funny how the simplest smells in the world are so comforting? Coffee, baking bread, cookies, apples & cinnamon. When it gets cold, I get enthused to bake and for Ron to make soups! I made stuffed cabbage rolls and put them in the Crock Pot this morning. They'll be ready for dinner.
