A Winter’s Night Toast

“Brew me a cup for a winter’s night.
For the wind howls loud, and the furies fight;
Spice it with love and stir it with care,
And I’ll toast your bright eyes, my sweetheart fair.”

~Minna Thomas Antrim, “A Night Cap,” A Book of Toasts, 1902

winter night

I know. I know, you read this twice already, go ahead and skip to the end to find today’s blogger!

Sky Blue Daze suggested I participate in the 3 Day Quote challenge. I thought it sounded good, but then I found out, there were rules.

  • Post on 3 consecutive days
  • Post one to three quotes per day
  • Challenge three different bloggers each day


I’m not so good with arbitrary rules, but I’m pretty good at making up new ones!

So, instead of nominating three new bloggers to participate every day I’m instead going to introduce you to one a day. Partially because I’m contrary like that but mostly because I sincerely hope that you will all follow my link and find a new fantastic blogger on the other end. And, if said fantastic blogger wants to share some quotes in the next few days that’s just a bonus.

 My last blogger introduction is one who is fairly new to me. I’m not sure how I found Melissa and her Ever Growing Farm. But if I had to guess I’d say it’s the goats. The goats may have drawn me in but I’ve stuck around because she loves her chickens’ eggs in a way I can relate to and she’s one of my favorite people to sit down with over a virtual cup of tea. And, of course, the gorgeous pictures. (Speaking of pictures you should probably look her up on Instagram.  Just today she shared glimpses of a gorgeous frosty sunrise, a goat and a baby chick!)

Stop by her farm, share a hot beverage, meet the goats and say hello!
