Hygge

Apparently the Danish word ‘hygge’ – pronounced hoogah – was chosen one of the trending words of the ill-fated year 2016. It has to do with cosiness and comfort and how to survive a long cold winter. Candles – a soft, kind, romantic light. Chatting with friends.

Chatting with friends about books. Finding faces in cookies…

Books – to escape into different worlds without the use of technology.

Walking and bicycling – exercise and transportation rolled into one – no pollution either.

Knitting – most therapeutic and producing endless cosy wooly hats for which there may or may not be takers….

It all sounds splendidly friendly and lazy and not striving at all…

Home made soup, perhaps and paper whites at the window.

porridge

oatmeal

etc etc

I’m sure comfort also lies in having access to health care etc etc…

I discover I am wonderfully in tune with the times and didn’t know it.

  1. Lovely post Elizabeth. I love the way you keep up all your interests and knit away at those hats. My grand daughter is thrilled to bits with her two and my direct debit to Medicins sans Frontieres has just gone into my bank.
