Storm Day in New Brunswick..
















Hello dear hearts...
So glad you dropped by and sure 
hope all is well..

We woke up to the blizzard that has been sweeping the U. S. and now the Eastern seaboard of Canada.. 

Last night I had made a few preps in case the hydro went out.. 
So far so good, though.. 
At least I have a wonderfully hot thermos of coffee if it is required..
And lots of milk.. 
 smile.. 

I spent some time today working on my calender..
I posted about it before HERE... 
I had made it last year as I love the UK Country Living one but I could not afford theirs so I made my own.. 
All I had to do was change the calender year pages.. 
2012 to 2013..

Then I needed to make a meal.. 
Pork Tenderloin (trying out a new recipe from Bon Appetite.. 
Scalloped Potatoes and Salad...

And I wanted to show you the thrift store find I bought yesterday.. 
It is an old silver small teapot, sugar and creamer.. 
With the letter H...
The red you see in it is reflected from my top.. smile.. 

Now another evening is rolling around..

Tomorrow is the Lord's Day again.. 
I so hope the roads will be ploughed so we can attend church..

This is Canada after all and we are used to this.. 
There have been cancellations but once it stops it all goes forward.. 

Kind of feel sorry for some friends who went to Connecticut for a huge conference that ended up being cancelled.. 
They are all stuck in hotels and not even allowed on the roads.. 
Oh my... 
I pray that God will give them all safe travelling mercies back home...

Anyway... 
May God bless you all and have an awesome weekend..

  1. Faye, the photo with the buggy, looks like a painting. I love the tea set you found and that it has the Letter H is so special. Your dinner looks delicious as always. Stay warm and cozy, and it looks like you are keeping busy. We had a snowstorm yesterday, probably under 10 inches of snow, but not the huge blizzard first predicted for Staten Island. xo

  2. Nice that the set had a "H" on it - that was lucky. You potatoes look heavenly! Like the idea for the calendar too. Blessings from Wisconsin.

  3. Faye...I've been inside all day, watching the storm. Doesn't look like many cars out and about; I guess since its Saturday and a lot of places are closed, people have stayed put. I'm not a winter person, but like the sound of the wind whistling since in the night and the snow blowing across the yard and field. No power outage yet...hope it doesnt. Your potato scallop picture looks so yummy; I grew up eating potato scallop on a regular basis - still like it; and of course, every Sat. night - baked beans!

    Take care and be safe. Always look forward to your postings.

  8. I grew up in Limestone, Maine. Do you know it?
    I have to say that I much rather look at your gorgeous photos of snow than to have to endure it again! But it does hold some fond memories...
    You have a lovely blog!
    Much love,
    Tammy

  17. I was wondering if the Conference would be cancelled. All those ministers holed up in pricey hotel rooms and their families are left to fend for themselves. It proves that God does have quite the sense of humour. I'm not being sarcastic, I simply see the humour in it. :) You can be sure that they're chomping at the bit to get back home instead of putting money out on nothing. My friend, Ruth Wittmeier has a son and sil who went down there for the conference. We were talking about this on Friday. I've been to some of those and they are WONDERFUL! So there must be lots of disappointed people dow there. I want to go to another one so badly.
    I LOVE the silver teaser, with the H, how perfect! I'm sue you are wondering what the H stood for, I would be.
    Hopefully, despite being prepared, you were able to keep your hydro.
    Have a wonderful week, my sweet friend. Hugs, cindy

  18. I really love your calendar idea! Yours looks very special and I'm sure it's even nicer than a store-bought version! Country Living is one of my favorite magazines and I've subscribed for a very long time! I save each issue. I wonder if I could cut them up for something as nice as a calendar? I really DO love the calendar!

    Enjoy a great week!

  19. A lovely silver, grey and white palette of colours in your post made it very lovely to view ~ thank you! Stay cosy , it will not be long 'til Spring xx

    Country Homes and Interiors (UK)has a very attractive FREE calendar with the Dec issue each year, btw. I have loved it several years running, and always use it.
    The mag is very similar to CL
    However, there's definitely more satisfaction to making one like you did :)
    Blessings to you and T.

  20. Hello Faye,
    I loved seeing all your snow at your house, as I don't see it that often here. I took care of my husband this weekend who was sick with a bad cold, and now I may be getting it ugggh. I smiled when I saw the silver tea pot, sugar, and creamer set. My mom used to have one like that, and I remember cleaning it at times. It was handed down to my sister when she passed away. Those scalloped potatoes look so yummy. I haven't had a pork loin in awhile. Have a blessed week, Faye.
