::Five things.

Five good posts that I read the other day: 

:Five good quotes:

1. "Child," said the Voice, "I am telling you your story, not hers. I tell no one any story but his own."

2. “It does not do to leave a live dragon out of your calculations, if you live near him.”

3. “I always deserve the best treatment because I never put up with any other.”

4. “I may have lost my heart, but not my self-control. ”

5. "May your coming year be filled with magic and dreams and good madness. I hope you read some fine books and kiss someone who thinks you’re wonderful, and don’t forget to make some art — write or draw or build or sing or live as only you can. And I hope, somewhere in the next year, you surprise yourself."

:Five things from the past few days here in Wesleytown: 

1. It has been very, very cold here.

2. We have been drinking lots of tea {the result of it being so cold}.

3. We have been baking and eating lots of chocolate chips cookies {the result of drinking so much tea}.

4. There has been lots of knitting going on.

5. There has also been lots of reading in front of the woodstove.

:Five good movies that are good for cold, snowy days: {not a long list but off the top of my head, five good ones}

1. Little Women {our favorite is the 1994 version}.

2. The Lord Of The Rings {any one of them~they are all three fantastic!}.

3. August Rush {one of my favorite movies}.

4. Monk {okay, not really one movie but really, for a cold snowy day, nothing gets better than Monk! {pick any episode and enjoy!}.

5. The Winslow Boy {we have loved watching this movie for years now and, sadly, it seems not that many people know about it}.

:Five good things to sip on a cold morning:

1. Hot tea {black or herb}, with lots of cream.

2. Hot lemon and honey.

3. Coffee~with lots of cream and sugar.

4. Hot chocolate-make it with lots of chocolate!

5. Warm milk with a bit of honey and fresh nutmeg grated over the top.
