Cozy Up , It’s Chilly !


The temps are getting mighty chilly now as the fall deepens into the month . Lots of leaves blowing every where as the winds pick up  and howl across the land .  This morning it is rainy, windy and chilly , the air is so fresh . We stocked up our wood box beside the wood stove and had it going last night for the first time of the season  . DSC_4219

I love the smell and the sound of a fire place when there is a chill in the air , the comfort from it is like no other . We had  left over chicken stew I made a day ago in the slow cooker   for our supper then a cup of tea later in the eve .


The evenings are getting dark early now and it even looks cold up in the clouds and all I want to do is snuggle in my blanket on the couch watch some movies or get lost in a good book .

Some of the trees here are bare , some have completely changed whilst others are still green and just beginning to change .


    This morning Miggy and I are just cozying up indoors as the wind blows and the rain falls.  I’ve never been much of a baker but even this weather makes me feel like baking  so I may bake something for Papa . This is about the extent of it here at Our Country Cove on rainy chilly days .

                               Until next time hope you have a good day !

There is nothing cozier than a fire to curl up in front of. I LOVE the smell of it too. That is one of my favorite things about being in campgrounds and the mountains, is the smell.

I love the smell and the feel of a warm fire on a cold night--Along with a good meal like yours, can it be any better??

I hope you've had a good day!!

Sounds like a wonderful day! I, too, love the smell and comforting sound of a wood fireplace. One day, I hope to experience that during Fall and Winter. In Florida, we don't get to do that, ha! It's still warm here during the day but the nights are cooling off into the 70's F. Enjoy your couch, book & blanket!

Oh funny I was thinking of baking too but I am a tad lazy today. I love your description of relaxing lazy fall days and how to enjoy them. B
