It was a cold, rainy, sleepy, comfort food, reading kind of day.

I indulged, eating warm organic pumpkin, cinnamon and almonds for breakfast.

Freja and I whipped up a batch of roasted red pepper hummus for lunch. She licked the spatula it was so good.

The kids devoured a hot bowl of popcorn topped with butter and parmesan cheese after school.

Our library books were due, so we got organized – fetching books from every nook and cranny in our house – and headed off to refill the basket.

We all found something interesting.

And finally, a roaring fire, freshly steeped chai and a good read.
