Hola Cottage Fix friends! Have you heard about the East Coast storm they forecasted on the news? Well we’re right in the midst of it here on the coast of Virginia. We’re not getting hit nearly as bad as the folks up north, but the roads are covered in ice and snow. Our cozy little cottage is surrounded by a layer of icey cold. I went to the supermarket to stock up on supplies on Thursday, though I wasn’t really sure what supplies to get. But they say that’s what to do. So I did. When I got there it was nuts, everyone was going crazy loading up their carts. Oh dear, the pressure. What was the right thing to get?I ended up with a giant ham (it’s in the oven now), Ghirardelli chocolate brownie mix, milk, eggs, and spinach. I also got a sourdough loaf from the bakery, mostly because my madre was talking about sourdough earlier that day and I hadn’t stopped thinking about it. I meant to get chocolate bars and flowers, but I didn’t think about it until I was already in the never ending line. No way I was going back in at that point! So we’re doing pretty good here. We had brownie sundaes last night and the giant ham is smelling delicious. I lit the white candles lining our mantle and honey’s manning the fire. Luckily our 16 year old son split firewood after school yesterday when the snow first started to fall, so we’ll be keeping nice and warm. We ventured out for a walk this morning. And although it started out fun, by the time we headed back home my toes were frozen and I couldn’t feel parts of my face. I’m no good in the cold.
So basically I haven’t left the house for two days, except for our little walk this morning. I’m looking forward to the sunshine they’re calling for tomorrow. Hope you all are staying warm.
