Toasty Toes

My toes were very toasty on Sunday night. I lit a fire late in the afternoon and tended it until it was time to jump in bed and watch Downton Abbey on the flatscreen in the bedroom. The last glowing embers had just slipped beneath the grate when I put the fire screen back in place before closing down the living room. I'll be tucking in early tonight as soon as I clean up the dirty dishes. I've already walked Webster. It was raining very hard at the end of our walk. Tabitha was with us too and the animals were both soaked. Luckily I had my umbrella. See you tomorrow. xo

Oh that looks heavenly! What I wouldn't give to have a real fireplace in my home.

Rosemary,
My favorite thing about winter is a toasty fire in the fireplace on a cold day/night. Your fireplace is very pretty.

What a cozy picture. And yes, Downton was sad. We need a flat screen tv in our bedroom. We still have an old style blunderbus!

My flat screen TV in the bedroom is only 17" but it has a great picture and it's not far from the foot of the bed. I love your term Blunderbus for the old clunker you have.
I actually love watching shows on my iPad the best. It's almost like being in the movie. So many of the newer shows insist on having smart phones in them and you need to be able to read the text messages.
I am still waiting for a wireless TV that you can carry around from room to room.

xo, Rosemary

I don't have a flatscreen; and have never watched Downton Abbey; but it sure sounds cosy at your house! Webster is such a great dog; Tabitha is a great cat!

And I love your house next to the forest!
