Here & Now | Link Up

Loving // Slow winter mornings with early morning snacks and yarn to knit with
Eating // Homegrown lamb and beef - the first in quite a long time!
Drinking // Organic apple cider vinegar in my water, sweetened with a little honey. I find it very helpful on dry winter days with staying hydrated
Feeling // Unable to believe that we're now in the last month of winter
Making // New knitting patterns - I published this one and this one last week. They also double as squares for my knitted quilt!
Thinking // About too many things at once
Dreaming // Of the flowers of spring

  1. A good reminder to enjoy a few slow mornings while we still can. Winter has sped by, hasn't it? The first of the spring blossoms are already sneaking out here on the bight pink early flowering cherry trees and no doubt more will follow after this week's burst of sunshine.

    1. There's been very little sunshine here, but our peach has begun flowering, even though it doesn't usually do that until the end of this month.
      There are very few slow mornings to be had once the heat of summer arrives! x

  2. Winter has definitely arrived in NZ this week, your photos look so spring like.

    1. I hope you stay warm! Thank-you for joining in again x

  3. I had a giggle when I saw your Neapolitan ice-cream washcloth, Sarah. It brought back memories of my sisters and I clashing spoons over who would get the last of the chocolate stripe! Thanks for hosting such a lovely link-up!

    1. You're welcome Meg - thank YOU for joining in again! Neapolitan ice cream was so yummy, wasn't it? I can't remember the last time I had it x

  4. Hi Sarah! I've been reading your blog for a while now and I love this Link Up - I hope you don't mind that I joined in! This is such a lovely post... it's the middle of summer here so it's nice to read about cosy winter mornings. x

    1. Thank-you so much for joining in Kate! I've hopped over to your blog and read your post and tried to leave a comment too, but Wordpress doesn't seem to be letting me comment on any Wordpress sites at the moment....
      I love reading about winter in the middle of summer too, it makes the day seem a little bit cooler just for a few minutes x

  5. How I love those little silkies! Thank you for hosting such a fun link-up! Megan xx

  6. Oh those silkies are so gorgeous Sarah. I agree, where did winter go? Time is moving so quickly. Have a lovely week. x

    1. Thank-you Jane! I hope you have a lovely week to x

  7. Hello from summerish (it's raining a lot this week and I'm wearing wool socks) Slovenia,
