i’m glad the month of endless frugality and greyness is gone, aren’t you? teddy and i saw january off in style yesterday, with homemade cookies, a hike round the local country park, and a nap or two on the sofa. we even managed to time our walk perfectly with the weather, so we arrived home just as the rain started to pour!
see that mess in the photo above? that’s what my kitchen always looks like when i’ve been cooking. it would be pretty nice to be able to cook something, just once in a while, without it looking like a tornado’s moved through the kitchen. still, those cookies were worth the mess. my chocolate cravings disappeared after the first bite, but i finished the whole cookie just to be sure. and two more after that. it was the only sensible thing to do, right?
i can feel myself starting to get impatient for spring. at the end of each season i always start to long for the next: for warmer weather, or colder weather; for crisp fallen leaves, or trees in bud. we’ve got some fun dates booked in for february so far, and i can’t wait! i’ll be seeing my jo for the first time in far too long, and jason’s hoping to take a couple of days off work during my university reading week :) bring it on, february.
