The Simple Things Issue 91 January
|Publisher Names||by ICEBERG PRESS|
How to thrive in winter. Botanical pick-me-ups & vegan comfort food.
Ethical spending. Citrussy cooking. Soups and snacks for the trail. How to make a time capsule. Cold weather salves.When snowdrops unfurl their green shoots in winter, we should see it as a sign; they have spent the summer and autumn replenishing their stores in order to burst forth, renewed and ready for the new year.
January feels less a time for decisions, resolutions and big changes, than for looking ahead and letting those hopes and dreams be spoken out loud. If your own stores are not feeling as topped up as our snowdrops, this month is good for some quiet R&R.
Embrace a winter festival or two, go on a field trip to appreciate your home town, drop everything for a snow day, or cheer up yourself and your kitchen with some citrussy projects. Fresh ideas are always a good way to start the year.
Taking time to live well
The Simple Things is published monthly and is all about taking time to live well.
We celebrate slowing down, enjoying what you have, making the most of where you live, enjoying the company of of friends and family, and feeding them well. We like to grow some of our own vegetables, visit local markets, rummage for vintage finds, and decorate our home with the plunder. We love being outdoors and enjoy the satisfaction that comes with a job well done.
And we like to think that the small things we do will make a difference in the long run – whether that’s making, upcycling, growing, cooking, entertaining, escaping or relaxing.
