Hello my dears..
Are you all getting this cold weather yet?
Here in Eastern Canada we have had cold and winds but it is November after all and I guess we expect this..
A bit of snow is forecast for over the weekends..
Terry and I went on a little foraging trip yesterday..
It was so cold and windy but we dressed warmly, picked up a hot cup of coffee from Tim's and were on our way..
We have made several trips up to our old farm lately and I have been spying out the ditches..
I love decorating for Christmas with wild stuff... grin..
Anyway, we went on a little side road and saw these growing ...
My dear husband cut a bunch of the branches and I picked several containers of the berries to dry for potpourri..
What a lovely place this is.... ..
Old farms that have been there for decades, rustic camps and smoke coming out of chimneys..
It was a beautiful day..
The coffee was good and the company was sweet..
Just so thankful for days like this where we spend such precious time together..
Sounds corny, eh?
Nevertheless... it is true..
There are some wonderful country scenes up that way..
A little country church...
Albert County is such a beautiful county in this province..
Perhaps, I am prejudiced ..smile..
I will put it in with some pine and dogwood ...
Then while he was in the ditch cutting some branches a truck pulled up and stopped..
I took the picture in my mirror of him trying to explain to the forest ranger why he was ripping off the forest.. grin..
Actually, he knew the lad and he told Terry that he was a good man for helping his wife...
And he is... smile...
We found white berries, little trees, fir cones, lovely green moss and different pods..
I will share a few pics of the finished product when I get it all together.. OK?
Here is the link for last year's WINTER POTPOURRI..
Today I did a bit of cooking..
A favorite soup...
My version of LENTIL SOUP..
Dustin was here so I sent some home with him as they all have the flu..
And some cookies for a couple of sick boys..
Hope they all are feeling better soon..
How are you girls doing?
I know our American friends are preparing for their Thanksgiving Day..
I don't like decorating for Christmas until December but I have been thinking perhaps I should start sooner as it takes me so much longer then it used to..
I don't do as much anymore because the kids only get home for one day usually and I just dislike taking it all down again..
Getting lazy in my old age, I guess..
Thanks for visiting here and as you know
I love hearing from you and just wondering about your decorating plans and such this year.
I would like to welcome the new followers of the blog..
Appreciate having you ..
Take care everyone and God bless..
