Moments in our days..






\








Hello everyone.. 
Welcome to the Blessed Hearth today.. 

This seems to be a very busy time of year, eh? 
I finished my taxes today.. 
Thank you, dear Lord..
I am always so relieved to accomplish this dreaded task.. smile.. 
Now, I feel like I can get on with some fun stuff.. 

We are having a Keepers of the Home meeting on Saturday so today I prepared a few things in between adding figures.. 

I thought I would just share some pics of our last few days.. 

One day we went to the cottage and did a few things.. 
Terry took some measurements for the shop.. 
Then we found another violet stash.. grin.. 
I believe I have enough now.. 

Then on another we had the company of two wee boys.. 
We took them to their fave food place..
They enjoyed teaching Grandma some French words and teasing Grandpa.. 
They were telling him he was slow like chicken little.. grin.. 
Their sweet mama was out celebrating a big birthday.. 
smile.. 
Happy Birthday, dear Veronique.. 

We also went for a day trip to the Fundy National Park which is on the Bay of Fundy, also.. 
We always start our little trips with coffee and we share a cinnamon raisin bagel.. 
There are some lovely old homes, farms and such.. 
On our way back home there was a young moose on the side of the road.. 
I am terrified of moose.. 
My sweet hubby knows this and when I grabbed my camera he did not say anything.. 
He knew that I thought it was a deer.. 
After I took the above pic he tells me that it is a moose.. 
Needless to say there were no more photos.. grin.. 
He knew it was a moose because of the big ears.. 
When it started running across the road I realized the difference, too.. smile.. 

A little time spent at the farm with a nice meal of 
Broccoli and Beef ... 
Recipe HERE... 
It is a weight watchers one and very good..

Thanks so much for stopping by and leaving your lovely notes.. 
I am so pleased there has not been any more spam although I wish I didn't have to control the comment section.. 

Please take care.. 
Hugs.. 
Oh.. if anyone would like to attend our meeting please email me at houseofhenry@hotmail.com  
We would love to have you..

    Beef and brocilli....yummy I am putting the ingredients on my list for the grocery store on my way home. Suppose to head to the cottage tomorrow for the evening and supper and that sounds like something yummy to make. :)

  21. Beautiful pictures. I love old farms and buildings. I've never seen a moose in the wild like that - I know they are big - maybe that's what make them scary. Your food looks so good, as always. Blessings from Wisconsin.

  23. Hello dear lady, I had to quit letting people post anonymously, too. Recently I had to completely delete a post because someone was directing traffic to another website through mine! Can you believe the shameless actions of some? The nerve!
    Your photos are fabulous! I meant to email you this week and I got busy with church stuff and didn't do it. I did accomplish all that I set out to do though.
    I love seeing photos of the Bay of Fundy, I still remember learning about the fact that it has some of the highest tides in the world on it. I have always been fascinated by it for that reason.
    The houses are so pretty, and the moose! I knew immediately when I saw your photo that it was a young moose, beautiful and already HUGE!
    Have a good weekend, dear friend. Hugs, Cindy

    1. It is ok so long as they are young like this one and off of the road.. So many people lose their lives each year because of moose here in Canada.
      They are an awesome animal, though..
      Thanks for visiting, dear.. xo

  25. The photos are great. I had to go backwards to find the moose in the photo. A bit of cool weather there, we are coming out of a week of rain. But no complaints cuz Oklahoma is having tornados again. Sigh. Have a good weekend.
