books and tea by candlelight

I’m definitely a a snow baby — i was born in June but i’ve always preferred winter over summer, not that both don’t have their good and bad sides. Well its officially the first of December — the first advent has started and i enjoyed my day by sipping piping hot tea and flicking through and old book handed down to me called ” Dronningens Læge.” Its an old book with old newspaper cutouts from articles about the real story behind the book.  This little spine of pages smells like the magic of the forest and whisper of the wind, and i can’t wait till i have the time to sit down and really focus on the words and the story.
Its on my to read list and its pretty high up there so when i finish “Buffalo Girls” and “Vorherres rævefælde” this might be my next stop on the literary path. However its a matter of how i feel when i finish a book that determines my next step. If i have a book hang over — all betters are off and shit hits the fan. But for now i’ll pretend i’ll read it soon because its a warming thought.

Now, back to the candlelight and hot tea.
A goodnight, i bid thee!

Well, its October, and i started the month with chest pains, sore throat and everything that follows. Its such a beautiful month — the trees are turning red and yellow; leaves are crumpling under foot. October is one of the most inspirational months there is, so i sure hope this flu is over soon so i can start enjoying the cooler months before the snow takes over. Anyway, seeing as im currently out of commission i’m spending my sick days knitting, creating an ikea wishlist and working from home when i feel up to it.

Livin’ dangerously.
