Keepers of the Home by the Sea....

Hello everyone.. 
Just sharing a post with you of our little overniter that the Keepers of the Home group had at the old cottage in St. Martins by the Sea... 

Terry and I went down on Wednesday to get things in order.. 

We had to warm the house up as it has been empty for a few weeks as we have moved back home.. 
It was really nice weather and we enjoyed a little nap by the waves.. smile.. 

On Thursday, we decided to do some dinner prepping so that there would not be a lot to do on Friday.. 

The big question was... 
 How many meatballs to make as he was concerned there wouldn't be any leftover.. grin.. 
No fear.. 
It was an old recipe I had received from a friend over 30 years ago.. 
Made up a couple of loaves of Artisan Bread to serve with dipping oils.. 
Fig and Pesto Parm..
Everyone seemed to enjoy this as a starter along with Lemon Cordial Punch.. 

I feel bad that I forgot to take pics of the food and place settings.. 
Oh well... 

My dear hubby helped me gather lots of flowers to put on the tables.. 

So enjoyed having these dear girls over and the sweet fellowship we had.. 

Sitting around the fire and hearing an encouraging devotional on preparing our hearts and homes for another season.. 

A lovely little visitor all the way from the Prairie Provinces of Canada... 
So nice having you, Missy... 

After a wonderful deep sleep (hahaha) we all awoke and sat around drinking tea and chatting.. 
Then we arrived at this beautiful Inn for breakfast.. 
The folks in St. Martins call this place The Castle but actually it is the St. Martins Country Inn.. 

The coffee was delicious and most welcome.. 

The Breakfast plates were beautiful and the staff so friendly.. 

As we were driving down the lane we had more staff come and thank us for our visit... smile.. 

They were so glad we had stopped by... 

Y'al come back now, ya hear!! 

Wasn't that sweet... 
So well trained aren't they... grin.. 

All in all it was a blessed time and so thankful to the Lord for the friendships that God has placed in our lives and the blessings that come our way with this wonderful group of ladies.. 
Thank you to everyone who helped in any way... 

There are some interesting meetings coming up... 
If you live near Salisbury here in New Brunswick and would like to join us please email me and let me know.. 

We are gathering next at a Keepers wonderful log home and learning some great canning techniques and seasonal decor tips for our Autumn homes .. 
We are planning on a day to make and freeze 100 egg rolls for the coming Christmas season..
Well, that is enough for now. 

Thanks for dropping by and your sweet comments are so welcomed.. 

Hope you are having a blessed weekend..
