Freezing rain and a crackling fire

What a difference a day makes!  It is absolutely terrible outside today.  

High winds and freezing rain beating against the windows....

The windows on the front of our house are totally covered in a even layer 
of pebbly ice.  It's days like this that remind me that we do live on a large rock
in the middle of the North Atlantic Ocean.....and it is January after-all.

Nothing to do but get hubby to light a nice fire in the fireplace 
and brew up a big mug of peppermint tea!!

(Notice that awesome mug-----quickly became my new "all time favorite", 
from our precious little granddaughter for Christmas.)
