But, meanwhile, I shall be lighting the lamps and the candles, and looking forward to when I can put all the twinkly fairy lights around at Christmastime!
Have you heard of the word ...Hygge? It’s pronounced hue-gah, and comes from a Norwegian word meaning “well-being.” In other words, enjoying life’s simple pleasures, often achieved with good food, drink, comfy surroundings, warm blankets and candlelight. So, as you will see, Autumn and Winter are just made for us all to practice some Hygge. Colourful throws on the armchairs, potpourri scented with smells of orange and cinnamon - anything to lift our spirits whilst these darker days are with us. Of course, I’m aware that in many parts of the world, you are approaching Springtime. Forgive me, but I have to write as it is with the Seasons in my homeland!
Most of the colours are fading in the garden at the moment, but I took this photo of a wilting rose earlier today. I think it still looks quite beautiful.
So my friends, may your lives be filled with Hygge during the coming Season. See you again soon.
