Nest: a place of rest, retreat, or lodging
Merriam Webster Dictionary
I love winter. I love the beautiful white wonderland the snow creates for us to enjoy, different daily, as it's blows and bluster, shifts and changes.
But I also love that it gives me good excuse to 'nest'!
Yes, it's a good time to cozy inside by the fire with my hot cup of tea and browse through my old magazines to see what project I might want to work on or even pick my brain a little with my crossword puzzles I've neglected for too long.
Tim and I have been passing our evenings nesting, watching our DVDs of Foyle's War. I do not like to watch war shows, but this is more about life in England during the war. It is so good. It is serious, but it is full of warm characters, and even humor at times. We were so sorry when we were finished with them all. But we just discovered there is another series coming this year-back by popular demand!

Notice how the ice is piling around the shore and spreading further out into the lake? This scene will change many times as the ice drifts back out and floats along the lake and then piles back again against the shore. I do love watching it.
I've finished Samuel's baby blanket. This was quite a feat for me. Not because it was hard, but because I seem to start each morning with the intention of working on it, and then get distracted by something silly-like a job interview... Now that Samuels's is finished I'm going to work on making one for Reece with the scraps. I used minky. Oh my, what a mess. It's everywhere!
On the rug, the floor, my sweater-I'm surprised it didn't somehow make it's way to my mouth!
Well, that's all the 'excitement' of my nesting day!
Tell me, what do you do when you 'nest'?
