cozy




I was sitting across the room in my easy chair the other day at about suppertime and enjoyed the coziness of this scene across the floor.  The soft light on a grey day and the muted colours of the hydrangea blossoms just spelled c-o-z-y to me.  




We are into cozy season here as the days are shorter and night creeps in earlier.  I 'crank' the heat up a notch in the morning even though our heaters are on a timed thermostat.  I don't like to be cold.  We keep it at 22.5 all winter in the day time unless it's extremely cold and windy....like in the middle of January or February....and I'll turn it to 23.  lol  Hey, electricity is expensive here!   If I'm still cold I put on a down vest over my hoody and find something to do around the house that will get my blood moving.  Sometimes I jog on the spot while looking out the back door window.  Yep.  Anything to keep warm.  :)  At night the thermostat drops to 18 at 11:00 so if I'm up later and it goes into 'night mode' I have been known to crank it up again until I go to bed.   Shh...sometimes I forget to turn it back down again.


This is what it looks like here today.  I shared this photo on Facebook this morning with a little poem I wrote.  Don't laugh.

Three black crows sitting on a tree,
wondering where their friends could be.
It's too foggy for them to see,
three black crows sitting on a tree.

Haha!

I wish you all a lovely, cozy weekend.

Thanks for visiting.  

Blessings,
Pam

  3. I like your attitude about the shorter days, Pam! It's much better to think about the weather as being cosy rather than dreary. :))

  6. Yes, very cozy scenes... I like your poem! Perfect for the photo...like those crows, I'm wondering where my friends could be. I think a whole lot of them have blog posts that are not updating. Perhaps Blogger is at work on something behind the scenes. I am nearly ready to give up on Blogdom for the day and spend my downtime at Pinterest instead. =D

  7. Wonderful cozy photos indeed ! Our furnace is gas run but electric start so it isn't to bad so we are ok as gas is cheap lol actually our hydro isn't that bad either and if we really want we have the wood stove to use if we choose we usually only use that really for the comfort , smell and sound but if the hydro goes out and it is cold then we use the wood stove lol ! Living in the country one has to have a back up plan lol ! Thanks for sharing , have a good weekend !

  8. Cute poem and a great photo capturing your weather. Your living room does look cozy. We like to sleep with it cool, but I also have been known to crack up the heat just like you. Last night I was hot. It's quite humid,warmish and rainy here and I'm anxious to have the cold weather back (but not as cold as where you are please!) Have a nice weekend,

  9. Love your poem and that beautiful foggy photo! Also, your glowing photos. So pretty. So I'm not the only one who says 'suppertime' instead of 'dinnertime' for the evening meal? I'm wondering if I got that from my Canadian grandmother. Is it typically used that way in Canada? And like you, I keep the thermostat low and wear CudlDuds and polar fleece to keep warm - and keep busy! I have this silly secret wish...that snow wouldn't come until Christmas Eve morning and then melt on January 7. LOL Have a wonderful weekend, Pam.

  11. I like the cozy season, but miss the warmer months although here's it's been unseasonably warm for two weeks. Love that poem. Poetry was one of my go to's in earlier days. Carol

  12. Very cozy and pretty, Pam... I do kind of like our long cozy evenings and I am also guilty of turning up
    the heat until Terry gets the fire made and forgetting to turn it back down.. Oh well... xoxo

  16. Very comfy looking images. Love the poem and the moody feel to the crow photo! Certainly motivates one to write a poem! Sad days at this end once again .:(

  17. Yes, it is a very warm and cozy scene, Pamela.
    I had to laugh about your heating habits.
    Now that I no longer have a wood burning stove I can entirely relate to this.

  18. Yes, it IS cozy Pam...and so inviting. It makes me just want to come and knock on your door to borrow a cup of sugar and you would invite me in for a cup of tea :) And those crows...and that poem...you could turn that into a great children's story book! Have a wonderful weekend :)

    Your room looks so inviting!
    Have a blessed day!

  24. knock, knock. Hi Pam Can I borrow a tea bag or 2. I ran out. You would say. Oh come on in. I will make you a cuppa. Sir with me and chit, chat.

    Nice blog. Relaxing day or night. You would make a good neighbor.

    Hugs

  25. Your living room looked very cozy indeed, and I loved the subtle beauty of the hydrangeas and the acorns, a special place to relax and enjoy the longer evening for sure! And the cute poem about the crows was great - I often wonder what birds and animals are thinking, lol! Hope you are staying warm and cozy! :)

  26. Your photos all give me a sense of nostalgia, Pam. Your sitting room looks so inviting. We also keep our house cool - I actually think it's healthier. I've sometimes been forced to put on 3 layers!

  27. Your poem is so cute, Pam - it gave me a little giggle! Such a wonderful photo....Everything does look very cozy there - so soft and serene. I am struggling with adjusting to the colder temps, too. I just pulled out all the heavy sweaters. They say that keeping the thermostat low helps you burn fat so I am trying to look on the bright side :) Love your bowl of gourds. Keep cozy! Hugs xo Karen

  28. LOVE this post. Your "cozy" photos are really nice, and I really do like the mystic crows, and very cute poem I might add!

    ReplyDelete
  29. Pam, I like to be warm, myself! My husband and I battle over the hemostat at times--the rare disagreement that we have. he is always hot and I am cold--lol. I always wear a wool sweater after the sun goes down--it helps--and wool socks

  30. Very cosy indeed Pam!
    I'm gonna tell Murray you are fiddling with the thermostat! Hahaha!
    Too bad you don't have a fireplace or wood stove...that sure takes the chill off!
    Enjoy your week...rain here tomorrow :o(
    Cheers!
    Linda :o)

  31. I like your three crows and the poem. And I love the way you've made your home look cozy and comfy. Even though it's not cold here, our days are so short that I like to turn lamps and nightlights on early. I don't like a dark house. Hugs, Diane

  32. Yes the cozy season is here. I spy the same lamp shade in your living room as in mine :) Loved the foggy photo with the crows, lovely poem.
