What's your groove during hygge season?
(One of) Mine is bread-baking.
Pro-tip: the crabbier the apiarist, the sweeter the honey.

Enjoying day-old, reheated, black coffee poured from a mud caked thermos while sitting on a folding stool in a duck blind,in 3 inches of frozen muck. Must be a sliding scale.....

Thermos coffee is the best coffee. Best wishes for a successful hunt! Do you have a retriever, cowdoc?

Currently dogless. Just lost our water spaniel last month after a 3 year battle with diabetes. Looking at Boykins but maybe gonna wait til I retire.

Not sure about "hygge season" but in winter the Dutch Ovens and Romertopf come into play much more often.


This clay pot bakes a full 2 pound loaf.


Sharp cheddar sour dough biscuits made yesterday. Not too bad for a crusty old guy, but gotta watch the calories, home made breads add more than good meals!

Doc, sorry to hear about your old buddy.

I like to sit in my reading room with my Schnauzer on my lap, reading and stopping to watch the snow fall.

Cool thread!

Still paddling until the lake freezes over. Heading out tonight. Great to have all the motorboats gone and the lake to ourselves :)

But I look forward to warming up with a very warm cat once I get home.

Camping on the Colorado River in Earp California watching birds and boats go by.

Good luck, ours is about froze over!

I enjoy driving around the lake and hanging out with my neighbor, who by the way bakes some great treats... good coffee too. But sitting down can only be hygge after accomplishing a good task... unless it’s 4:30am, then it’s a book by the fire and a cup of coffee... then a piece of Fred’s bacon and a couple eggs and away I go!

Sitting in the cold quiet woods, 18' up in a tree with a sunrise over my shoulder.

I had to look up this "hygee" thing.
Contentment comes mostly when I am either outdoors or looking out a window. I learned from the dying the importance of enjoying life so make the effort to get my hygee on several times a day. My resting pulse runs between 45-50.

Guess it is time to shift gears. Lake had an inch (plus) of ice stretching at least 60 feet from shore. We had a heck of a time breaking through tonight so it might have been the last paddle until spring. This year we paddled from the day of ice out until the day of ice up.

Time to start baking cookies or something I guess.

Doesn't just the word itself make you smile with contentment?

I have often, in my 70+ years come across phrases or words that I've never seen before. However, once exposed to the new word, before long, I see it again and again. Hygge, I had to look up, now I saw it again on a webpage for a local restaurant.

Baader-Meinhof -- Heidelberg I was five minutes away, and my mom, sister and I were headed over to that very parking lot in ten minutes, to see a movie. Then I heard thunder that wasn't thunder.

Having been stationed in Germany in the early 70's, I was very aware of the Baader-Meinhof gang, but I never knew there was a Baader-Meinhof syndrome until now.
