Hi everyone. Welcome once again to Friday's Fave Five. It has been a crazy week here in most of Canada. We are being slammed with a "polar vortex" and it is absolutely frigid. So many areas in my province have hit record cold. It is crazy, dangerous cold. As I type it's -31*C with windchill taking it to -40*C (-24*F with windchill to -40*F). So I think a lot of my favorites this week have to do with staying warm.
~ Williams Sonoma Mulling Spices and Five Apple Cider ~ my son had gotten this as a gift for us Christmas before last and I was saving it for Easter 2020 when the whole family would be together. Then covid hit and ruined all our plans and I told myself Thanksgiving and that came and went and I changed it to Christmas and that came and went without being able to celebrate together. So with this frigid week I threw caution to the wind and cracked it open all for myself. And I have been enjoying every sweet, spicy, hot drop. It's delicious and perfect to warm me up in this cold.
~ a place in the sun ~ it hasn't been sunny everyday but when it has I've been sitting in this spot when it hits the patio doors in the afternoon. The sun coming through the glass door radiates a nice warmth for a short bit. Long enough to read a chapter or two.
~ furry or sherpa knit throws ~ every evening covering up on the couch to watch a show or read a book calls for a nice warm blanket these days. It's nice to have a variety of these soft throws to choose from
~ feather duvet ~ I like a cool room to sleep in but I love the warmth of our fluffy feather duvet. Warmth without a ton of weight. So grateful for it this week!
~ warm vehicles~ I haven't gone out much this week but when I have I was extra thankful for features in my car such as a really good heater, heated seats and heated steering wheel. I know it's totally first world privileges but I am no less grateful.
What are the blessings in your life this week that you are thankful for?
