At Home on a Wet and Foggy Sunday

First, I put on my cheerful red tam and comforting blue Wellingtons (I usually call them rubber boots - but when I'm in a Scottish Mood... they're Wellingtons) and milked the goats.  I always wear a tam when I'm in a Scottish Mood - which nearly always occurs when it's damp and foggy.
Next, piping hot ginger tea and several chapters in 1 Thessalonians.  Tilda made breakfast - the dear!  By the way - these are some of my favorite things.  Just thought you'd like to know that.
Some dear friends of ours who are market farmers stopped by with some new potatoes, cabbage, and fresh sunflowers, and we sang some hymns and chatted awhile.
Later, Ma, the girls and I had a tea party with Walker's shortbread (in keeping with my Scottish Mood), and then some sewing projects appeared.  
Alexander Scourby is reading Joshua at the moment.
Och aye, it's been a lovely day.
"Ye are all the children of light, and the children of the day: we are not of the night, nor of darkness. Therefore let us not sleep, as do others; but let us watch and be sober. For they that sleep, sleep in the night; and they that be drunken are drunken in the night. But let us, who are of the day, be sober, putting on the breastplate of faith and love; and for an helmet, the hope of salvation. For God hath not appointed us to wrath, but to obtain salvation by our Lord Jesus Christ, who died for us, that, whether we wake or sleep, we should live together with him.  Wherefore comfort yourselves together, and edify one another, even as also ye do. . . Rejoice evermore. Pray without ceasing. In every thing give thanks: for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus concerning you. Quench not the Spirit. Despise not prophesyings. Prove all things; hold fast that which is good. Abstain from all appearance of evil. And the very God of peace sanctify you wholly; and I pray God your whole  spirit and soul and body be preserved blameless unto the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ. Faithful is he that calleth you, who also will do it."
1 Thessalonians 5:5-11, 16-24
Will ye' no come back again?
While the Scottish Mood lasts, I remain,
Yours truly,
~Miss Margery Stuart~

Alright, that did it. Where's my tam?  Ah, here it is...
I am now {officially} in the Scottish Mood.
Sounds like you had a lovely day!:)
Your devoted friend,
~Miss Edith MacAlpine~

I hope yours was equally cozy!

I spent part of my day as a drowned rat, as related in my comment on your Saturday Snapshot;)
But, aside from that, it was quite cozy:)
And I seriously need to get some wellies - going around in this kind of weather in crocs is just pathetic. =)

How wonderful! I do like those sort of days. I call them my 'Medieval mood' days. :^) I usually get the urge to don a cloak and take a hike through the wilderness....

Yes, I love to take a ramble through the forest and over the hills with my dogs, practising my Scottish accent and swishing the raindrops off of the branches in my path with a birch twig.  There's something so romantic about a birch twig. . . also, wearing a vintage sweater, Wellingtons, and a big silk flower in one's hair. . . 
Unfortunately, I don't have a cloak yet, though it's been on my "to sew" list for ages. =) I need to get right on that!
