Welcome to the Weekend coffee share! Can I get you a cup of coffee? Tea? Or perhaps some hot chocolate? There’s no official link-up for a weekend coffee share this week, our friend Natalie is taking a well deserved Christmas break from her hosting duties 🙂 However, I missed last weeks round-up, and thought I’d share some winter magic with you this week.
Let’s start with this “heart in the snow” that my daughter made outside our passive house apartment complex. My daughter’s been battling a nasty flu for the past two weeks. Yesterday we went outside for a few minutes for her to get some fresh air. Her fever is completely gone now, and the only reminder of the past weeks ordeal is a stuffy nose, I figured a few minutes of fresh air would do her good.
Due to her health we cancelled our Christmas plans with my brothers and their families, but I’d say our Christmas (we had our main celebration Christmas Eve) have been wonderful so far. I got my ten days off from work that I wished for, and just spending time together is fantastic.
We’ve been cooking our favourites festive foods together, talking, playing games, opened gifts and watched a couple Christmas movies (The Grinch is my daughter’s favourite.)
Last, but not least a photo of our community greenhouse waiting for warmer weather. All the photos are taken within a short walk from our house. The days are very short. The light makes a hesitant appearance between 9am-3pm, the rest of the day is still in complete darkness. It’s wonderful knowing that the days are starting to get longer again. I hope that you are enjoying this holiday season with your loved ones.
