A Seasonal Thought

With the sun slipping away earlier and earlier each day, I find  myself walking around the house lighting candles. I can't do this in summer because you cannot see the gentle light from the candles in daylight.


So although I really do prefer longer days, I love how at this time of year I can add a bit of 'cosy' to my home.


Part of celebrating the seasonal year is looking what little ways you can bring the joy of the season into your home. When you are purposefully looking for these little ways, you find contentment right there, in the time and space that you are occupying.

  1. Amen!! I couldn't agree more and I do the very same. Usually. Because this year, this season, I've needed some reminder obviously. Thank you - for doing so.

    I love that jar...so whimsy - like.

    1. Thank You Bevy. This season I needed the reminder too! For some reason I have not been loving the early sunsets this year! I am looking for the silver lining - determined to love the time I'm in right now!

  2. What a lovely post! I, too, prefer the longer, brighter, warmer days of summer than the days of this season. But you are so right -- when we look for ways to add joy to the days we are living that moment, we find contentment.

  3. Love the last one! I've been turning on my candle warmer that casts a beautiful glow in the kitchen, oh so homey!!
