We have a bitterly cold wind gusting about us this morning. So far the sky is clear and the sun is doing its best to offer some warmth. However with snow and sleet predicted for much of the South Island and the high hills and mountains of the country it is a day to hunker down inside.
The slow cooker is working away on Moroccan lamb and couscous for dinner, the soup pot is now bubbling away gently on the stove, the tea- pot and toaster are at the ready. All to help keep the chill out today.
Jazz has a cozy spot by the gas heater to do his stretching exercises and I’ve got layers of wool on. If you are a New Zealander reader keep warm today wherever you are living.
It did get a little warmer through the day but now have an extra layer on and Lotte is curled up in front of the fire. 🙂
It feels very polar today that is for sure Judith. Enjoy that fire if Lotte allows you too.:-)
Jazz looks very happy and relaxed. We needed three heaters to keep the office warm today, but at least we haven’t seen any more snow – yet.
Jazz has relished the heater today Ruth. I’m glad the snow has stayed away for you all. But the cold has been intense all over it would seem.
Sounds like a lovely dinner! And look at Jazz – all that soft fur. So cute!
The dinner was very scrummy Jo. Lots of warming spices on such a bitterly cold day. Jazz somehow keeps his whites very white! His tummy is lovely to stroke. We laughingly call him stretching as he was in the photo “his yoga stretches”. He’s a pretty zen kind of cat.
A good day to stay home and cook 🙂
It was Judy and the hot food was very welcome. Also a good day for knitting:-)
