What is currently Saving My Life ~ Winter '20

Happy February! After a crazy couple of weeks filled with Scouting and School activities I'm happily linking up with  Modern Mrs Darcy and sharing what is keeping me smiling and the blues at bay.

  • Reading always and forever Amen! Joining challenges and stretching my reading muscles, revisiting old favorites and finding them welcoming; and following book blogs where I find suggestions and companionship amongst the virtual bookshelves.

  • Journaling prayers, gratitude and daily occurrences not to be lost in the craziness.
  • Seeking out a good series to binge and watching a couple episodes with Dr Daddy in the evenings once the kiddos are tucked.  Currently Doc Martin and Good Bones.
  • Lighting a candle or two in the evening.
  • Weekly visit to a local coffee shop and making a cup of tea as we start homework.
  • And seeking out 'what makes it better' for my people.  For example, finding a warm Chai waiting makes the winter morning a bit easier to face for the resident tween: which in turn makes the getting out the door routine smoother for everyone.

What is saving your life this winter?


  1. All things that I consider essential to surviving winter! I may tried a cup of hot cocoa one of these morning for our teen daughter. We never know the mood she is going start the day in.

  2. Definitely candles and a visit to local coffee shop for me, too! And Doc Martin is always a good binge.:)

  3. I received some candles for Christmas and I've been loving lighting them every day that I am home. They cozy up the house on cold days! Thanks for stopping by!

  4. Chai always feels extra cozy in winter! I've made a real effort to budget to stop by a coffeeshop for a latte on weekday mornings and it makes such a difference in enduring these long, cold days.
