How is your weekend thus far?
We have been having cool but lovely weather here in Eastern Canada...
Yesterday about 3 o'clock Terry came in and told me to get ready and we would go for a drive and then out to supper..
I didn't even have to ask... grin..
Anyway I thought I would show you a couple of pics of our drive...
Two gorgeous donkeys and two handsome horses..
Lovely barns and sheds, too...
Then of course a drive is not complete in Terry's mind until you go on some old back road...
We had to drive for miles as there was not any place to turn around..
I mentioned that I did not like driving on old back roads this time of day in hunting season..
It is the tail end and the hunters are probably getting itchy fingers..
If you know what I mean.. grin..
Nothing to worry about the man says because we are driving in a red truck..
Now could you argue with that logic??.. grin..
We did finally get turned around and continued on a nice drive...
Lots of beautiful farms on this drive and the view was awesome..
Way far to the right there is the Big Stop..
There we shall dine... smile..
Took a little side road first, though and got this lovely farm pic..
My friend grew up on this farm..
Then we had our Supper at the Big Stop..
It is just a family restaurant that you find here and there through the Maritimes of Canada..
Good food and a pretty good price..
We ran into some friends and had a great time catching up..
Today dawned nice and bright and cool..
Another puttering Saturday, I guess..
I have decided to clean a cupboard or two a day and surely I will have them done in time for the celebrations.. smile...
This is my white restaurant dishes cupboard..
Well, this is one side..
The other pic did not turn out but you get the drift...
I did inside and my friend cleaned the outside..
It was so good to get the windows cleaned again..
He had painted a bit and is cleaning the paint off..
See how my green onions are growing..
It only took a few days, too..
This idea is all over Pinterest..
Just cut the roots of your bunch of green onions off and put them in a glass of water and they will regrow..
Then I needed to refill my lavender salt scrub..
The link for that is HERE..
I like having one by my sink in the kitchen as well as my bathroom..
This old marmalade jar makes a perfect container for it..
Then I decided to get my bedroom ready for Winter..
Last night I nearly perished in bed..
We have a water bed as I have mentioned before and it is warm but I had the window open a ways ..
If it had not been for Terry I would have had to get up and put an extra blanket on..But he is like a furnace, thank the Lord..
Although, in the night he was wondering where he could steal a duvet....
That man is so funny sometimes..
Today I changed the bed from this...
This cover is a king size so the duvet fits under it ...
The colors are more for Winter, too..
I even dug out my little snowman pillow..
Elaine who is one of my blogging friends wanted this recipe...
For Banana Bread..
This is from a book called AT THE TOMATO..
A famous cafe I believe located in British Columbia..
Her name is Diane Clement and I love her recipes..
Here it is..
2 large very ripe bananas
1 tsp. baking soda
5 T. buttermilk
( I always have powdered buttermilk in my pantry)
1/2 cup of butter
1/2 cup of brown sugar
1 tsp. vanilla
1 1/3 cups of flour
1 tsp. baking powder
1 8x5 inch
bread tin loaf pan, greased...
1. Mash banana and add soda and buttermilk and stir..
2.. Blend butter, sugar, egg and vanilla in a bowl..
3..Sift flour and baking powder together..
4.. Mix all together just until blended..
350 degrees F. oven for 55 to 60 minutes..
I did not find it took mine that long to cook but that was probably because all I had at the farm was a larger bread tin and it was not so high..
As you can see here...
Just before I started writing this to you ladies..smile..
Hope you all have a blessed weekend..
Thanks for all of your kindness..
Dropping by and leaving your lovely notes..
Tomorrow is the Lord's Day..
I was glad when they said unto me, "Let us go into the house of the Lord;."
