The Simple Things February Issue 80
SOOTHE – Healing nature walks & green apple tea. Finding your tribe. Orange drizzle cake & overnight baguettes. Homes for pets, nestboxes and where writers lived. Why we love a long bath. Paper flowers. Rhubarb & ricotta toast. A wood in winter
Some days you have to create your own sunshine. And that’s the key to not merely surviving in winter but thriving. Looking after yourself comes first, so do things that soothe you; bake bread, hang a nestbox, walk in the woods or put flowers in a vase. The weekends matter more at this dark time of year – use them wisely. Visiting the home of a literary hero or having friends for lunch can transform a gloomy Saturday afternoon. And there’s your sunshine, see?
Taking time to live well
The Simple Things is published monthly and is all about taking time to live well.
We celebrate slowing down, enjoying what you have, making the most of where you live, enjoying the company of of friends and family, and feeding them well. We like to grow some of our own vegetables, visit local markets, rummage for vintage finds, and decorate our home with the plunder. We love being outdoors and enjoy the satisfaction that comes with a job well done.
And we like to think that the small things we do will make a difference in the long run – whether that’s making, upcycling, growing, cooking, entertaining, escaping or relaxing.
