First Of The Season


My goodness ! Temperatures here in South Carolina dropped like a rock last night! We woke up to 39 f this morning with a wind chill of 36 !..... Of course next week we will be back in the mid 70's.. Yup, it's yo-yo weather here in South Carolina. It just can't seem to make up it's mind on what it wants to do. It won't figure itself out until probably towards the end of December. We wear cold weather clothes in the morning and warm weather clothes in the afternoon until the sun goes down. Doesn't it drive me nuts? You bet it does. 

If you read my post yesterday which is located here  then you know I was in desperate need of slowing down physically, emotionally and spiritually. Well, that's exactly what I did this morning. The photo above is of the fire I built in the fireplace this morning. The first of the season. 

I woke up about four forty five this morning (thank you hot flashes and bladder) and couldn't go back to sleep. I tossed and turned until about six o clock and decided although still tired to get up and take advantage of some extremely rare morning quiet time.  I put on my robe, made some coffee, some scrambled eggs, started the fire, grabbed my bible and book light and went and sat with my husband and all the dogs by the fire. Sipping my coffee and soaking in the Word of God and the beauty and warmth of the fire. Shockingly the dogs were all very quiet as well.

Mornings like these in my house are very, very rare so when I see there is even the slightest chance it could happen I jump on it. 

I'm also not cooking tonight as I have some left over spinach and cheese ravioli's in the refrigerator for my husband to have for dinner so I thought I would take the time to go down and see Linda tonight. I hope you all have a wonderful Friday and weekend. Don't forget to set your clocks back an hour on Sunday before bed that is of course, unless you live in Arizona! 


  1. Looks cozy and warm! I love the smell of a fire. ~Deb

  2. I heard on the news, yesterday, that a cold front was headed that way. How lovely to be able to enjoy the warmth of a fire, while seated near the fireplace! I'm glad you were able to enjoy some quiet time, this morning. I hope the rest of your day is as relaxed and you have a lovely weekend. Take care.

  3. How nice to have a morning fire. I miss having a fireplace. We don’t have one in this house.
    Quiet cozy mornings are special and starting the day with a quiet time is the best way to kickstart a day! Hope you have a great weekend. God bless.

  4. Robyn, The picture with your Bible, fireplace and cup of coffee is beautiful. Quiet moments like this are priceless. Thank you for stopping by my place with such kind words. I so appreciate this,

  5. Sounds like a wonderful moment to me! Enjoy your day, hugs, Edna B.
