Welcome to June! Welcome to Winter. Welcome all Creature Comforts.
Officials hang out til the 21st -22nd June for the Winter Solstice ... but from where I was in the New South Wales Central West town of Orange over the past several days [madly looking at home & garden stores!] it certainly felt the chill of Wintry weather! With tops of 13 &14 degrees Celsius. Whilst our happy European & North American friends will be embracing the Summer... we are now more than ever contrasted in our weather, outdoor gardening, cooking, decor & clothing styes!
But I have to say there's something so comfortingly beautiful about the cooler months - rustic homemade food, hot coffee & chocolate, steaming baked goods, soft flannelette sheets, layers of blankets and throws for late afternoon naps - with snoozing pets on warm laps - not to mention the crackle of the first fire! Although I have to admit we started our open fire at the End of March since the cool Autumn hits us a little earlier in the Upper North Shore.
Winter is Cosy. Winter is Delicious. Winter is Creature Comfort.
