Home time..

Hello everyone.. 
Hope you all had an awesome weekend.. 

Our first one home for many many weeks.. 
I must say it feels so good to be home and getting back to normal..

Terry has been busy picking our tomatoes as frost is forecast for tonight.. 
We have lots of cukes and green beans, too which taste so good.. 

I think I will try out a couple of new pickle recipes as soon as my new stove arrives.. 
We left our old one at the cottage and I have been trying to be creative with a slow cooker, indoor BBQ,  potato baker and micro-wave.. 
It has been much easier then I thought.. 
The only thing that is kind of complicated is making breads and desserts which we haven't needed really anyway.. 

Well, until today that is.. 
It is Terry's birthday so of course a little dessert was required if not needed.. smile.. 

I made a cheesecake which does not need baked... 
I am sure you all make it.. 
The crust does not even need baked.. 
Then we had a slow cooker casserole made with some grilled chicken legs, rice, mushrooms, celery and onions.. 
All held together with condensed cream soup and broth.. 
One of those recipes you make out of your head if you know what I mean.. smile.. 
Then we went for a little drive and dropped by and visited some friends for an hour or so..
He had a good day.. 
The dear man.. 

Fall has certainly arrived here in Maritime Canada.. 

The corn is so high in the fields and the mornings are very cool.. 
The furnace has been on and felt good.. 
I had to bring my plants in that I leave out for the Summer while we are gone.. 
They have grown well..

I have so many herbs to bring home yet from the cottage but there is not frost there for a few weeks yet.. 
I guess the Bay keeps it warmer there or something.. 

We enjoyed lovely services in our home church yesterday and sweet fellowship with our church family.. 

So all in all we seem to be getting back in gear.. 
Except my house.. 
It takes me so long to accomplish what used to take half the time.. 
What can I say.. 
I will just putter away at it.. 
All in good time, I guess.. smile.. 

Well, sweet ladies I need to go to bed.. 
We are leaving early in the morning to pick up our new appliances and hopefully some garlic to plant.. 

You take care and thanks so much for your sweet support.. 
Welcome to the new followers, too.. 

God bless..


  1. Happy Birthday to Terry! God Bless Your Dear Man!
    Yes, I would like to have some of the cake, no bake, wonderful!
    I love your photos.
    Am thankful for you, you are home!

  2. I always say it's good to go but it's better to come home! Happy birthday, Terry!

  3. Happy Birthday to Terry. Of course dessert is part of the day! Glad you had a good trip home and fun to get new appliances. I remember when our microwave went out on us. Phil was unemployed at the time, for what turned out to be a year....years ago. The kids asked how we'd heat up leftovers? We said, the stove!
    HA! Relax and don't worry too much about getting the house into tip top shape off the bat. It will happen. Hugs!

  4. Happy birthday to your Hubby! We are getting cool here at night as well-37 degrees this morning. I fear frost is just around the corner for us also. Enjoy your day and God bless.

  5. Birthday wishes for Terry....yummy supper and cheese cake, oh boy. Love the fireplace, so beautiful, Fall Blessings Francine.

  6. Happy Birthday Terry . Lovely photos and YUMMY foods . Cooler nights and mornings here for sure , way up north of us they have had frost just a bit for us more like a dew . Glad you have settled at home now and a new stove oh that is exciting I bet you will be cooking and baking up a storm now lol ! Thanks for sharing ! Sun is shining this morning and the air is cool fresh and sweet smelling . Have a good day !

  7. Good morning dear friend...HAPPY BIRTHDAY TERRY!
    Your sweet wife spoils you and rightly so.
    It is fun to go away (even if it's to the 2nd home) but sooooo nice to finally be back to the roots.
    It is cold in the mornings and evenings here now too - only 43 this morning so the heat got turned on but only for about 1 run and by then the chill was gone.

  8. Happy Birthday to Terry!

    Ah, new appliances, will be so much fun breaking them in :)

  9. Happy Birthday to your hubby! Enjoy your new stove.

  10. Yummy looking food there, I say!! Cheesecake is always a plus around here. but seldom had. That's why it's looking extra good, I fear! :)

  11. Hello, And welcome back home. So excited to read your posts from HOME too. :-)
    Happy Birthday to your hubby.
    xx oo

  12. Faye, some of your photos didn't come up in the blog when I read it. The first one and the last 2. I don't know why that happened. Any way I'm glad you are settling in back at home. Happy Birthday to Terry! Nice pic of him. We had a light frost here last night and the trees are changing noticibly now but it's a beautiful sunny day. Enjoy! Hugs, Pam

  14. So glad you made it back home. This will be my first Fall of following you blog from home, as I have just can across it over the summer. Where abouts is your winter home located. We are in northern NB and love the bay of fundy. However your winter home sounds wonderful as well, very country. Happy belated Birthday to your Hubby. I hope you enjoy your new stove. We had a light frost here this morning.

  15. Hanging on to the green here in Central US. We saw spots of gold and rust from the plane as we landed Monday.

    No-Bake Dessert recipe?

    Welcome home. I can't wait to get back on my island!!!

  16. Happy Birthday to your dear man, I love the way you say that, the love is so obvious. Your home looks very cozy and the dessert delicious! I haven't made it for a while, but my hubby loves it.
    Love and hugs, cindy

  17. Yummy!!! How is your corn still green? Ours is brown and dry and the combines are making quick work of them. I see your comfy hearth, ready to get cozy! Blessings, Friend. Welcome home!
