 Has anyone felt that cozy feeling that one gets in the winter? I'm sitting here at the computer and the house is all quiet except the huge winds that are blowing. It's 12:00 am and I still have the lights for the tree turned on & the rest of the lights in the house are dim. The cat's asleep beside me on the sofa. i feel cozy even though the weatherman never said a thing about the wind and my plants are getting knocked over outside and I'm  fairly certain my trash can is down the street and one of the neighbors will discover something glass of their's got knocked down in the wind. I'm yawning over the last bit of my hot chocolate and find myself ready for bed and a new kind of cozy. Sleep! Smile

Does anyone have a cozy moment to share?

As matter of fact I do have a cozy moment to share.....yesterday as I was anxiously awaiting the call that my husband was on his way home after a 5 day military drill I felt chilled....cold hands, cold feet....I am not a fan of travel days in the first place but yesterday was damp and dark and cool which made it worse.  I decided to have a fire!  My fireplace was warm and toasty and I was cozy on the couch with a good book!!  Finally at 4:30 the call came...."I'm on my way"!!  At 5:45 he was home safe and sound and I got my badly needed hug!!

I always feel cozy when all my family is home saft after traveling anyway.
I have 2 grandkids in college and I worry when they come home for the weekend
until I hear that they are back at school. There is so many deer for them to
watch out for on the highways.

I love when we're all home safe and sound.I love when there is a blizzard and no one has to go anywhere and I have plenty to eat in the house and just sit at my bay window sipping hot cocoa or coffee and watching the snow fall.Smelling bakery in the oven always makes me feel cozy.

This is the time of year that I get a peaceful feeling as I drive around in the evening and I see houses that have single candle lights in all the windows of the house.  For some reason that is peaceful to me.  Possibly because of the symbol of the candle lighting the way. I love other decorations but I find the candles most peaceful.

I also take comfort in curling up on the sofa in the evening with a cup of tea or hot chocolate and a movie or a book. The house is peaceful, the dogs are "in bed' and my husband is in bed.  I keep an ear open for noises that indicate that he is up but most of the time once he is in bed he is there until the morning.  This is the time I can relax (as best I can) and have some "me" time. 
I am thankful that he does not need more care at this time and I worry about when he will need more care than I can give.  (sort of a wake up from the cozy but the thought is in the back of my mind.)
