[A “looking back” post from December 2016 – still holding true today. Originally published in Its Own Sweet Will.]

The weekend is upon us – though of course my days don’t slow down with the weekend – do yours? Saturday and Sundays around Witt’s End are just as busy and filled, if not more so, than the rest of the week.

Which makes the importance of focusing on the joy of Hygge; (our family’s 2016 word), even more crucial to the heart and mind.

So – here are some of my most important “hygges” of late. I’d love to hear yours.

 

Things I’m Findin’ Especially Hygge (so far) This December

Hot tea 

ldbtaylor a hygge cup of tea

 

Rain

Chai

SnowSnow

 

Wind (aside from when it blows down the chimney, messing with my fire!)

 

Oversized sweat shirts, hoodies, and sweaters

 

Comfortable (meaning not too tight) socks (or slipper socks)

Boots

Small lamps scattered about – equaling pools of warm, soft light. Harsh lights, I think, are meant for the kitchen and such places as operating rooms – you get the idea! (This is a favorite, favorite of mine – much more on it later.)

Wood burning stoves

Bagpipes. Yup. I love bagpipes. (The ringtone on my cell is actually a lovely melody of bagpipes. Honest.)

Teatime

Bookstores (especially experienced with a cuppa tea in one hand)

UK accents (yes I know that one’s odd but there it is, and no it doesn’t matter “what sort”.  “Posh” or not it’s all good.)

These little Christmas birds on my desk (which yes I leave out year round.)

Two xmas birds

(can you heard their echoing chirp “two Christmas birds!”? 🙂

 

 

The scent of lemon or cinnamon, nutmeg or oranges.

Thermal leggings  (And I’ve no desire to enter the whole “are legging pants” debate. My philosophy is wear what you want!)

 

Christmas (or fairy) lights
Break room

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Mountains

The mountains

  …and the song they make

    

Reading aloud to my kids (or listening to them read aloud to each other.)

Watching my kids play a game together (not a video game or “plugged in!”)

 

J & R chess


My well worn nightgown, ratty well loved robe, and yeal, those comfy socks

 

Bonfires – campfires – toasting marshmallows

With many more yet to come.
