Enjoying these days...












Hello everyone.. 
We are having a very windy day here in Eastern Canada.. 
Actually, there has been a weather wind warning ... 

The bird feeders have  blown over and the old wood angel on the outside of the house is beating a tattoo on the wall.. 
There has been a bit of rain slashing against the windows, too.. 

As you know this is my kind of environment.. 
An early bedtime for me tonight.. smile..

Just sharing a few pics of the last few days.. 

We had lovely services on Sunday and Trevor and his family came for dinner.. 
We worked on a little project that one of the grandsons has to do.. 
A plant terrarium.. 
I had a few plants that he could use.. 

And then on Monday we had a coffee date with Shonda and Dave.. 
That was great fun.. 
Shonda and I visited the health food store and a Thrift shop while the guys did the hardware stores.. smile..

And then yesterday we visited Dustin's... 
He even drove us around to the shops... smile.. 

So good to enjoy our days visiting with our children.. 
Thank you, Lord... 

Otherwise, I have been working on decluttering of bathroom cupboards and such.. 

Baking homemade breads and trying out a new pasta..

Found the lovely cookbook at the Thrift store..

James Beard is my fave bread maker but this book is dedicated to my preferred food group.. 

The olive pasta was so simple and good... 
Cook your pasta and prepare some olives, olives oil, garlic and scallions..
Mix together.. 

There is not much snow so there are herds of deer everywhere.. 
And we have been enjoying a couple of squirrels this year..
The birds were very busy today...

Friday is supposed to turn freezing cold again so we need to enjoy the mild temps, I guess..

A little happy birthday to one of our dear grandsons today.. 
He is such a blessing to everyone..
We love you, Matt... 

Working on some new creative things.. 
Can't help myself, I guess... 

Anyway dear ladies enjoy the rest of the week.. 
Take care...

  3. Hi, Dear Faye!
    I love that verse! I need to stitch that or something... I love your bathroom! I love wainscoting (I call it bead board)! You bathroom is old fashioned farmhouse country but with a relaxing spa feel. Does that make sense? ;) I love that little chubby squirrel. I just really enjoyed visiting with you and hearing what is new. It was near 60 here today, but blustery rainy storms are coming with a cold front and snow possible. Yikes. Can't complain after hearing about the cold temps up north! 40 below. I would NEVER EVER leave home...

    Love and hugs!

  5. It a blowsy wet night here Faye but I'm loving the mild temperature aren't you? I can't believe you have next to no snow there. It looked like that at Christmas in Sussex too. We haven't had much snow this January and now this second melt will take it down again. We leave Saturday for Fort McMurray to see our family. I'm so excited and can't believe we are going after 2 more days. I really need to start some packing! Take care and enjoy the rest of the week. Hugs, Pam

  7. Why does that verse not say she starts her day with coffee and stays in pj's?? I guess I have a long way to go before I get anywhere close to catching up to that proverbs 31 lady!!

  9. Hello Faye, A little rain and wind here today but high of 60. Colder weather headed this way. Another soup day, I think! Your bread looks delicious. Glad you were able to see many of your family this week. We saw ours 4 out of 5 days last week. Papa had a surgery on his foot. All is well. Thank God for special favors.

  11. I really love this post! The photographs, your story.

  12. That olive pasta would be for me. My husband doesn't like olives. When I read your stories I think about a few years out for me - will I be able to find such contentment like you have without my girls? I have one getting married this year and maybe...the other the next. I try to think of the Prov. 31 woman - but, hard woman to keep up with. Blessings from Wisconsin

  15. I am so glad you got to visit with everyone. Sounds like such a fun time. I wish you could come to my home and declutter. I think I need a professional declutterer. You know like that hoarding show that comes on tv. I never watch it but I certainly understand the concept. (lol) Enjoy your day and God bless.

  20. Always a joy to visit with you, dear Faye. Your bathroom is very pretty and LARGE, I have a photo of mine on my blog today, that I'm working on at present and it's about 1/4 the size of yours. It takes all kinds.
    Your pasta looks yummy and so does your bread. And Shonda is so beautiful!
    I am doing a post on homemade soft soap that I mixed up and thought I would link it to your blog. I remember seeing your recipe, I think.:) I'm off to look for it now. Have a wonderful weekend, my friend.

  21. Hi Faye... we just finished eating your No-Knead Rosemary Rolls the past few days and now you go and show me that bowl of olive pasta! If I keep reading your blog, I'm never gonna get out of my kitchen! Guess I better go "roll up my sleeves" and get back in there... 8~D
