Welcome to the Blessed Hearth this day..
So glad you dropped by..
Hope all is well with thee.. smile..
How is the weather in your part of the world?
We had a couple of warm days and one was even record breaking..
Then overnight the temps dropped back to very cold..
Typical, I guess for this time of the year..
The hunting season will soon be over for another year..
Our oldest son and oldest grandson got their deer..
A little bit of excitement for them.. smile..
Trevor and I had a little laugh together..
He has my Dad's gun ...
Dad would go hunting every Fall without fail but the dear man never shot a deer..
But his gun shot one this week.. sigh...
I wish he could know.. smile..
He is certainly in a better place and we would not wish him back but sometimes you just wonder what he would say..
He never had a son and now we have all of these boys.. smile..
Sorry about that but sometimes I just get to missing him..
On with the show... grin..
I don't have anything very exciting or creative for you all..
Just another post of my doings as we say here...
The thing about being retired is that you run the roads a lot..
This week we went to the farm for a day...
Made another broccoli salad...
Set the old harvest table once again just for the two of us..
Made a banana bread and burnt the edges again..
dumb great stove... grin..
Made a casserole of chicken, rice and mushrooms..
Then ate too much of it..
Well, actually I only ate half of my chicken and Terry only ate half of his..
Brought the leftover casserole and chicken home and just added some carrots and chicken broth and had the best soup...
Terry went back to the farm today but I stayed home and did some much needed cleaning..
This pantry needed it badly, believe me..
I love it when it is all tidied up but it does not stay that way..
See that little flour canister there?
Isn't it dear?
I found it yesterday when we went to town at the thrift store..
I know I did not need it but how often can you find something like that for two bucks?
Oh.. and I bought a huge old cloth Santa for three dollars..
I think I can make him prim..
I will let you know.. later, that is.. smile..
After all of that hard work cleaning today I decided since we both are going to stop eating sweet stuff on Monday that perhaps I might make this tonight for dessert..
It was very good...
Here is the recipe I have used for many years..
Just click HERE..
We did not have ice cream..
Terry and I cannot have it in the house..
We both said at the same time tonight how nice it would be to have a scoop..
It was still delicious even without it..
Well, my dears I guess that is all for tonight..
I had a lovely conversation today with a dear girl in Maine..
Thank you for the lovely chat, Julie..
We do hope to meet in person some day..
Take care my friends and I look forward to hearing from you all..
The comments are the icing on the cake as far as blogging goes..
I know you don't always have time to leave me a note but when you do it makes my day.. smile..
