Good Evening, my dears..
Welcome to the Blessed Hearth tonight..
We are all well and like everyone else in this world; we are a tad busy..
Last week I had hoped to get all of my canning and preserving finally finished..
I canned jars and jars of pears and carrots and such...
Then today my sweet hubby bought 20 more pounds of beets..
We opened the jar that I made from a recipe from my UK friend and found them delicious..
I guess we will be doing a few more.. smile..
Had a lovely cup of carrot and ginger soup for lunch one day but you guessed it..
Hubby did not want any..
Only ordinary soups for him..
There seems to be so much to forage for this time of year..
Rose hips again..
There is just so much to do with them..
I actually wanted these ones to put in the dehydrator and for a wreath I was making..
We were also blessed with some sweet company..
Someone had a birthday..
He received a Grandpa toy...
That means he gets to leave it at our house and then they can play with Grandpa when they visit.. smile..
One of Mickey's favorites is a Caesar Salad..
Love my Salad Greens Dryer bag...
I finally got to my Hydrangea Wreath that I had been wanting to make..
I added rose hips and they will dry on the wreath..
I noticed it is not sitting straight on the chair but it did turn out right..smile..
Such an easy and rewarding craft to make and will literally last for years..
I made the wreath from some grapevines someone snipped from their vines and wired it together to make an oval..
Then just glued on sections of flowers and rose hips with a glue gun..
Terry picked some High bush Cranberries, too..
For my friend, Cheryl who reads the blog...the cranberries are ready to pick...
I am a bit late but there are still lots and I guess you can pick them all Winter..
We freeze them and make a lovely juice from one year to the next..
Even decorated the Supper table with them..
Trevor found the old bottle on the shore of the Belleisle Bay..
Love the old plates that I picked up at a thrift store a couple of years ago..
Do you ladies love old dishes?
Well, this seems to be a long post..
Sorry about that..
Probably you have all hung up on me by now but I had a phone call today from one of my favorite wee blog followers who thinks I do not post often enough and can't imagine why I would only write one line.. (Last post) smile..
I think he misses seeing his pic on here, too..
I have included another one.. grin..
His Dad sent it to me by email..
It was titled..
Want to be like Gramps..
How cute is that?
Perhaps, I shouldn't say this but if they turn out like their
Grandpa they will be wonderful men and their families will be blessed..
They may drive their wives and kids crazy sometimes but they will always know that they are loved..
They will also have their priorities in line..
Putting God and family above their own pursuits and no matter when they are needed they will be available..
Honest, faithful and hard working..
Just saying... smile..
Well, thank you dear hearts for listening to me one more time..
And Rafe I will try to do a better job and post more often..
Grandma loves you..
God bless you all and I look forward to hearing from you ..
Oh and welcome to the new followers ..
I hope I can bless your life in some way..
Grandchildren are the crown of the aged, and the glory of children is their fathers..
