We woke to snow on Saturday morning, a light dusting, with beautiful snowflakes still gently falling. I headed out right away, in the magic of it all, for a run. There is something about the first snow fall, and the beauty it bestows upon us...one of those things that never gets old. Back at home, Reece was already making little snowballs and tossing them around the yard. We enjoyed breakfast, eggs from the backyard, and then I headed out on my own to do some errands. I finished those errands and then hit a lovely little cafe to enjoy a cup of tea and read a letter from a friend. The letter arrived on Wednesday, and I didn't open it, I knew I would have this time at the cafe, so I saved it, I wanted to "catch up" with her over a cup of tea. I read her letter and then settled in to write to her. An hour later, I sipped the last bit of tea and sealed the envelope.
When I arrived home my two men were busy playing and crafting, and I headed to the kitchen to do a little creating of my own...body butter, healing salve, hand salve and lip balm were all made up, ready for customers and Christmas. The evening was spent reading, with a cup of tea and little chocolate.
The sun was shining Sunday morning, but there was a chill in the air. After breakfast we bundled up and headed out to a new to us trail. We hiked along the water all morning, soaking in the beauty of this spot. We will definitely be heading back again soon. We spent the afternoon at home. There was a little gardening, a little crafting, a walk up the road with the dog and a little prep work for the week ahead. A quiet evening followed, with a little more reading, tea in hand.
A slow, simple weekend, just the way we like things. How was your weekend?
