Happiness is

DSCF3691a 

This is my idea of a good time; plain knitting in lovely yarn, reading a book while it rains.  I love that sound the cars make on the road outside, shooooosh, that’s one of the coziest sounds in the world.  Laundry tumbles in the dryer.  I brew coffee, wear my slippers, plan to make a pie but don’t actually make one.  The middle of the morning is dim as twilight, so I turn on one lamp, and the rest of the world is shrouded in gloom, but I am curled up in the circle of lamplight, knitting and knitting.

  5. Enjoy your cozy day! We're having rain here too and I stayed in bed a bit longer this morning just listening to the rain. It hasn't rained here in a long time, so I am enjoying it. I just love the color of your yarn and can't wait to see what you are knitting!

  8. Sounds lovely Kristin. No rain here. Just dew on the grass, which is not quite the same thing. I like the shooosh sound too.

  9. Sounds perfect to me. I have children on half term holidays so it has been a bit crazy here but I feel calm now. Jo x

  10. Awwwwww, this sounds idyllic. I need to focus on the blessings of cosy time indoors to cheer me up about the impending cold weather.
    Thanks for this lovely simple post Kristen.

  12. There are advantages to the nights drawing in! I love that I go to work on my bike, and when the weather is horrible and I've cycled home again (after a day on my feet, it's not a thrilling job!) and had my dinner I don't feel guilty curled up with my crochet/knitting, and I feel extra cosy after the exhilaration of the bad weather on my bike!

  14. Kristen, that knitting looks lovely, and the scene you describe is very tempting to replicate here as rain and wind combine outdoors this darkish morning.

    However, I must break this revery and get myself together to get downtown for a work day. I will, however, look forward to eventually having my own version of a cozy knitting, coffee-fueled, even reading, morning.

  17. C'mon, you can knit and read at the same time???? I knew you were good, but that's inspiring!!!! ; -)

  18. Reading while you knit??? Perhaps when knitting plain, but really? Anywho, your day sounds pretty much like mine...lots of rain, cups of tea and knitting! the best!

  22. A dreamy day! I am planning one of those days too, but sadly with the addition of a horrible cold...

  23. Sounds perfect. My only change is that I listen to audio books these days instead of reading. I can do any pattern that way. I'm so addicted. My library has them for loan and download but I also buy the ones I like. How can I ever go back to work?
