{phfr} in February

 Pretty- Evangeline enjoying hot cocoa on a wintry afternoon.
 Happy- Our "outside barn kitty" sleeping on Ella's lap by the warm fire. I could hear him purring from the other room.
 Funny- Sometimes Ella likes to play with her hair. The results are often quite funny indeed.
Real- Stuart at the table with his matching game. I bought him a Richard |Scary matching game so I could play it with him while the older children work on their school work. Reality is, he likes three tiles (the fire engine, the train, and Sargent Murphy's motorcycle) and those are the only tiles he will play with. Makes for a pretty quick game!

Joining Like Mother, Like Daughter for another week of {phfr}, making note of the everyday things that bring us joy! This joy and contentment always come to me so much more easily in the winter time, when the days are slow paced and evenings are spent reading, knitting, or playing games around the fire. Summer rushes past in such a flurry of urgent activity that it is harder to catch that feeling of contentment and peace!


  1. I love these little glimpses into your week, so much fun!

  2. Ah, the purr of a happy kitty!
    I've been drinking lots of cocoa this winter, too, with my almond milk - it hasn't been very wintry, but I like it anyway.
    What girl can resist experimenting with her hair?
