Happy Monday to you all..
Another weekend has come and gone..
For us this was a very busy one but lovely..
Spring is so in the air here in Eastern Canada .. There are river watches and some wind and rain coming our way the next few days..
I love Spring..
My absolute most fave season..
Like a new beginning..
Fresh and new.. Full of lovely potential..
Flowers, herbs, new paint, lots of wind and rain (you know how I love that duo ) farm days with Terry, sheets on the line and perhaps a wee trip to Pa...
On Friday we woke and took a little spontaneous trip across the border to Maine..
Terry had to go into the bank on our way to get some American money..
As he was leaving he noticed they had some cookies.. grin..
He asked if he could have one and they that they guessed he could this one time..
He came out and told me and we laughed for five minutes..
Small things amuse small minds.. grin..
Anyway, we had a lovely day..
Bought some fabric..
Found some lovely prizes for the Keepers meeting and a few grocery items..
On Saturday we stayed home and I experimented with the No knead bread recipe again..
You can find it HERE..
One of the Keepers emailed me that she had made the bread after our last meeting..
Janet said she had made small loaves as her bread pans were smaller than mine and her four growing boys loved it..
She said she had made a Parmesan Oregano one..
I couldn't wait to try some so I made 2 batches and divided them into four small loaves and did different Subway type versions..
Parmesan Oregano, Italian Herb and Cheese, Feta and Herbs and Wholewheat and Honey...
I loved how they turned out..
After they rise the first time then divide them in two and add whatever choice you decide on..
I just guessed and kind of knead in the cheese and herbs and make into a roll..
Sprinkle some on top and let them rise again..
The cheese and herbs ones were the faves..
My dear Mom and her husband came over Saturday night for supper.. smile..
She always brings a few little things for me..
A lovely bundle of linen tea towels for me to make into bread bags...
The little antique sweater and bib that she picked up for me at the auction..
This was written on the back of the old box that they came in..
Older then I am.. smile..
Then we had a wonderful Sunday..
Full of lovely church services and lots of company for lunch in the afternoon..
One of the Keepers and her children along with our daughter-in-law and grandsons...
Their husbands were working..
It was another spontaneous thing so the food and table setting were very plain and done in a hurry..
Those kids were hungry.. smile..
Cheesy and kid friendly.. grin..
Coffee and afternoon chat with kids going everywhere..
Then back to church for another blessed service..
God is awesome..
He blesses us in many ways..
Our sweet daughter and her family are back here on the good old Canadian terra ferma from Jamaica..
Very glad they are back..
And happy that you joined me this evening..
You are sweet to leave all of your lovely comments and even sending me emails..
You make this blog so much fun..
Folks love face book but I do not find it creative for me..
Each to their own, I guess..
Blogging makes me sort of accountable for my time and my talents that God has graced me with and I feel like you are friends..
And welcome to the new followers..
Please note a few new sites on my blog list..
Hope you find them as inspiring as I do..
Take care, dear hearts..
Praying for you..
