Outside it is cold and snowy; perfect weather for sitting inside by the fire. Reading, knitting or just allowing ourselves to be mesmerized by the ever-changing dance of the flames. Recently our favourite ingredients for an evening are a cheerful fire and a board game. So far it’s been Scrabble, Mastermind and Mancala (with an improvised board). This evening it looks like it will be Chess. Oh, and we eat our dinner picnic style on the floor where we will be warm and toasty. Nothing fancy but I’m loving this good thing we’ve got going.
