It snowed about 5 inches here yesterday, which is a lot for Portland. I woke up this morning wanting something warm and cozy. Special dark is like a nice warm blanket that always makes you feel better, whether it be to warm you up, you’re sad, you’re sick, or cough a tad hungover. I’ve had several cups this morning while watching the kids, who are so excited by the snow, play, and the birds go crazy at our bird feeders. My favorite is the little hummingbird who has realized that i keep thawing the nectar so he pretty much just sits on the feeder and eats all day until it’s frozen. Then I bring it in and take out the thawed one. He chirps at me when I bring it out and then takes his perch again. So funny. They are such amazing little creatures.
