Happy Monday my dears..
I thought that I would share some weekend tidbits with you all..
I have been home alone for a couple of weeks as Terry has been away working.. I was down with the cold as you know so I did not get out and about..
So.. we went for a drive on Saturday as I posted about.. Thank you all for all the lovely comments..I am so glad you enjoyed our little field trip.. smile..
On Sunday morning we went to church and then we decided we needed to go to St. Martins and check on our old cottage and the shop...
It was a beautiful sunny day as you can see by the pics..
The Bay of Fundy was so lovely in the Winter sunshine...
A nice calm but cold day...
Everything was fine with the old place..
We did not stay but headed out to our daughter's house..
We had not been there for awhile so it was so nice to visit..
We stayed and Dave (our dear son-in-law) cooked a wonderful supper for us..
It was lovely to see our grandsons, too..
They are growing up so fast..
They are looking forward to the Summer when we are living at the cottage and they can come out and help with the shop..
They are quite the salesmen, you know... smile..
Whenever we go I enjoy looking around and seeing Shonda's decor ...
I admired a lovely snowman on her window sill and guess what was wrapped up and sent home with me..
Here he is ... A gorgeous snowman lamp..
He feels right at home on my windowsill now.. grin..
Thank you, dear hearts..I love him..
I still have snowmen up and about for another week or so.. Have you girls put your snowmen all away yet?..
Oh and I baked a chicken..
A Jamie Oliver recipe..
It was baked on a bed of carrots, garlic, onion and celery..
Drizzled with olive oil and sea salt and pepper and stuffed with a pierced lemon and fresh rosemary...
Very delicious... Tender and good..
With it I sauteed up some spinach in olive oil and garlic, salt and pepper..
Very tasty.. And good for you.. right? smile..
This week I need to start making lists and gathering plans for the shop for the coming Summer..
Being down there this weekend kind of reminded me to get at it..
I need to get creating...
More on that later.. smile..
I had a creative urge and dug out some magazines, scissors, glue and a marker..
and a package of Kraft paper book covers... smile..
I wanted a calender for 2012.
I usually buy one at Chapters after they go on sale for 75 % off..
But this year I could not find one that I liked..
I love the UK Country Living magazine and would love one of their calenders but they cost way too much for this Canadian..
I decided to make my own version.. grin..
It sure is not as nice as the one they have...
But their pics and another free calender taken apart did a nice crafty one..
Big enough to write all over the page..
Appointments and such..
To be honest, it is not quite finished but you get the idea..
Well, sweet ladies... thanks for visiting..
We had to postpone our Keepers Meeting due to circumstances last Saturday but it is on for this Saturday..
Looking forward to it...
Several new ladies coming so bring your hearts in hand and come along..
If you would like to attend please email me..
WE WOULD LOVE TO HAVE YOU ..
Take care and I will be looking forward to hearing from you all..
God bless you all..
