Hello my dears..
A little Saturday posting for you..
We still have lots of snow in Eastern Canada..
It is March break here in our province for the school kids and so of course our daughter and her family have headed to Florida..
This time they took their cousin who is our oldest grandson with them..
I am sure they will have a blast but meanwhile the rest of them are on the ski hills and such..
I do remember the excitement of March break and all the plans we used to make to have kids over and celebrate it all..
I sure do miss those days..
Here on the home front Terry and I are basking in the Winter's sun and enjoying the last days of the season..
I made this for our lunch and it was so good..
Terry has informed me that he is kind of tired of soup..
This is a baked potato with a topping of salmon and veggies..
I baked each of us a potato in the little potato baker..
And while they were cooking I made a white sauce..
I had salmon fillet that I shredded and a small can of mixed veggies which I added to the thickened white sauce..
Salt and pepper and a bit of parsley..
Pour this hot over the squeezed potato and a bit of shredded cheese..
Lunch in a bowl..
He thought it was a nice change from soup and then we only had salad for supper..
We went for a drive on the back roads and came across this..
Some forest harvesting here in rural New Brunswick..
It was a very cold day but I suppose the machines are heated.. smile..
The birds are busy this Winter..
I love them but don't know them very well..
A big flock of these ones showed up and visited for a day and then disappeared..
Perhaps they didn't like the accommodations.. grin..
Another day I cooked one of our lovely organic chickens that someone blessed us with..
I cooked it in this clay roaster that I found at the Thrift store..
I think it was more moist perhaps and the flavor was wonderful..
Another sign of Spring coming are the herds of deer that we see in the farm fields..
Very plentiful this time of year..
Do you have daffodils and crocuses in your part of the world..
I am content though with these winter days..
Although, I do look forward to snow drops..
Meanwhile, the candles are lit...
and the fire is stoked....
Looking forward to the Lord's Day tomorrow..
Love going and worshiping our Creator..
Receiving strength for another week...
And of course, the sweet fellowship..
