Rosemary milk, Socks & Sheep

My toes turned blue again, the weather is getting colder & if you spend a day indoors not doing much because your in pain... Well they can alter towards a rich purple I found. Cold toes are rather uncomfortable. Not a nice feeling at all and a wonderful way to warm up is sitting under a homemade quilt with a mug of steaming hot rosemary milk...

I made it for us (mom and me) yesterday. Dad is not a fan but you should try it sometime, I think it's delicious. It's ever so simple to make and has a great taste. Heat a pan of milk and place a rosemary twig in the pan. Make sure it's washed properly first! Leave to boil about 5 minutes and remove the rosemary. Serve the milk hot, enjoy.

You can also make a chocolate rosemary milk by mixing cocoa powder and sugar. Stir in a bit of milk to make a paste, add some more milk and pour it into the pan with the rosemary. Also boil for about 5 minutes and remove rosemary.

My toes did not magically turn pink again after drinking it. I needed an extra pair of socks for that. And I was given the perfect pair by my parents this week. It has pretty ice stars on it & a real Scandinavian feel I think. My sister has got the same pair in grey. We send them to her in the post.

I really love things from Scandinavia & stilll hope to find a pretty knit sweater with deer on it and stars or snow. Saw one a few weeks ago but not in my size :(
I do have a spencer with the same stars on it as on the socks & zigzag lines. I rather like it but a whole sweater or cardigan is still a dream of mine.

When we went to the local supermarket this week we came by a field in which a large flock of sheep had spend the night. It was a lovely sight and my mom made a picture of it, getting her feet wet from the grass. I'll place it here so you can enjoy it aswell. Now, the one in the middle isn't a sheep is it?! ;)

Only a few days till my b-day. I've already got some presents but I won't tell you about them yet. You'll have to wait and see my birthday post.

Are you cold aswell? Love rosemary or Scandinavian style knitwear, or sheep? .... Tell me :D
