Waiting for Winter

We have been having sweltering hot days in Cape Town. The kind of energy-sapping, temper-fraying heat that makes the days hard to bear. So I am waiting and wishing and watching for signs of winter!

   Winter means I can have my morning coffee in front of a roaring fire....

 Winter means the whole family can snuggle up with blankets and watch a DVD....

Winter means freshly baked banana muffins and steaming mugs of hot chocolate for the boys after cold, wet rugby practices.....

   Winter means sitting in front of the fire playing board games .....

Or simply curling up in a comfy chair, with a blanket and a good book.

Winter may be grey, but it is grey in a good way!

Till next time

  1. Hi Sharon your waiting on winter and I am waiting on spring(LOL)!! I don't envy your HOT weather. Spring and Fall are my favorite seasons. Have a great weekend, Martina

  2. Hi Sharon, I think it must be odd to be in Summer when a large part of the world is in Winter. It's the same in Australia too. When we get Summer where I am, the heat goes into the 100's over that on a lot of days in July and August and all I can think about is making it through to Fall. Sweet September is my dream. So I feel ya. On another note, the images of your home look amazing. That chair looks comfy! xoxo tami
