This morning we woke up to a house enveloped in cold, white fog. I was faced with a dense whiteness from every window of the house. The fog has lifted slightly but it is still very cold and grey outside, it’s a day for log fires and staying indoors. Everyone has lit their fires and there is a strong smell of wood smoke lingering over the hamlet. Actually I’m assuming that fact because I haven’t even stepped outdoors yet (Paul did the early morning dog walk) but I can see the smoke rising from all the chimneys.
We made coffee and grabbed some rock buns, then snuggled down in front of the fire to watch Jordscott, a Swedish drama about murder, mystery and evil in the forests – a bit of Nordic Noir. The sub titles are not a problem for me as I always have them on anyway. It was an indulgent way to spend the morning and the cold fog outside just added to the Nordic atmosphere. (Fika – Swedish coffee and cake break)
You lead a quiet life.ReplyDelete
I try to nowadays. That's the way I like it. 'Twasn't always thus.Delete
Fog and it got ficker.ReplyDelete
You are potty!Delete
"Fog and fika" sounds like someone with a speech impediment being rather rude.ReplyDelete
I was just trying to introduce a bit of Swedish culture.Delete
We've still not lit a fire. Lady M did suggest it yesterday, but I persuaded her that it was much too soon. Spent yesterday with rods down the fosse pipes; the perfect Sunday.ReplyDelete
I'll send Lady M over if you want more Swedish culture.
I cannot believe you didn't light your fire yesterday, those rods must have kept you warm!Delete
That looks like a perfect way to spend a day. I've not heard the term "fika". Is it a bit like "hygge" that people are referring to? -JennReplyDelete
Along those lines but more specifically a coffee and cake break. I love the concept of hygge.Delete
What better way to spend a miserable morning. I hope Rick got a rock bun too !ReplyDelete
Still warm and sunny here, and I didn't need a coat for the afternoon dog walk. Long may it last.
Frost this morning but lovely sunny day. (Rick gets a doggy treat, he's not allowed buns!)Delete
Sounds perfect to me.ReplyDelete
It was cosy and indulgent!Delete
