Good Evening everyone..
Welcome to the Blessed Hearth tonight..
Hope you are having a wonderful weekend..
Yesterday we woke up to lovely sunny day.
The wind was blowing and so I just had to put a line of clothes out..
I love my bedding and night clothes dried outside the best.
I do towels if the wind is fierce but otherwise they are too hard.. One lovely thing about being retired is that there is not as much laundry as when the kids were home so I can pick and choose a bit of what I put in the dryer..
I understand that some of you would not use a dryer no matter what but I am not that much of a purist.. sorry...
I think I paid my dues by doing many a line of frozen diapers and such in the early years..
That's my excuse and I am sticking to it.. smile.
We had to go to Sussex and take back some library books and do some errands ..
We took a wee side road and took this pic..
Spring in Eastern Canada, I would say..
Pretty soon there will be fiddleheads growing along these country brooks..
We love our spring greens and even pickle them..
You who have been following the blog for ages know all about them...
For lunch I made this wonderful Italian soup..
I had a bunch of extra spinach that needed used up soon so voila...
SPINACH STRACCIATELLA SOUP WITH ORZO..
The link is HERE..
I for some reason did not have orzo so I used a small pasta that was in the pantry ..
Also .. I did only half of the recipe as I was sure it would not be Terry's type..
I was right.. He opened a can of Campbell's Vegetable Soup..
There is no accounting for taste, I guess..
As for me ..
I loved it..
It tastes a lot like my Italian Wedding Soup that you can find HERE..
Of course, the only protein in the spinach soup is the egg..
Takes less time to make then the wedding soup, too..
Then this is what this morning looked like out of our family room window..
Yupppp... free fertilizer as the farmers say around here..
Our sweet son and his girlfriend surprised me last Sunday with this lovely bird feeder..
The birds have found it although it is not hung yet..
It is full of sunflower seeds..
Terry actually bought a hanger for it today so it will soon be up, Veronique.. grin..
She was afraid it would take him some time to do..
Another little tradition that I have for most Saturday mornings..
Fresh coffee beans and I use my French Press..
Such sweet little blessings from the Lord, eh?
Terry requested this for our dinner tonight..
I made it for the first time a month or so ago and I am still amazed that he likes it so much..
Sausage and Shrimp Jambalaya
I found the recipe here..
I of course have changed it to suit us..
I added a whole can of tomatoes, a bay leaf and some fresh parsley, though..
We add our own hot sauce, too..
Well, my dears here is something I hope to post on next week..
The many things you can do with tea towels..
That is all for tonight..
Thanks so much for dropping by..
Tomorrow is the Lord's Day and if there was ever a time in history to see the importance of attending church it is now..
We are living in a very unstable time..
What can be shaken will be shaken as the Bible says..
I pray for my children and grandsons that God will cover and protect them..
That they will always remember when Jesus came by and saved their souls and gave them peace..
The only real peace in this world is knowing that Jesus is your Savior and that he died for you that you can have eternal life ..
That you can put your complete trust in his love and mercy..
I pray for this world and it's leadership...
And for you dear friend..
If you don't know Christ as your Savior and have never repented of your sins then Jesus is available to you tonight..
He is the calm in the storm and he can make your life something beautiful..
You may not be down and out but there may be an empty spot in your heart that cries out for something to satisfy..
Jesus is as near as the mention of his name..
Take the time to put him first in your life and when this old world is on it's downward spiral you will have something to hold onto..
A dear sweet hand that will always be there..
Holding and protecting ..
He loves you ..
Have a blessed Sunday my dears..
