Good Evening, my dears..
A very cold day here in Eastern Canada ..
The sun was shining, though and very beautiful with the snow and all..
Speaking of snow..
I hung my little garland of snowmen that I made out of Shonda's gift bag to me..
There is not a lot of blue here but in the back hall it looked fine and I needed something for a change..
I would like to make a couple of wee valances for the doors, too..
I have been working at rearranging the Sun Room...
Most of my plants are in the there but I need to get them distributed about the house a bit more..
Besides which, I have been trying to grow some different from the usual ones..
If you live near me and have the plant called
A String of Pearls then I would love to have a slip..
I cannot find one anywhere..
Do you have lots of plants?..
I have lots of geraniums as I bring them in from the Summer and keep them over the Winter and then just put them out again in the Spring..
The benefit is that you save money but mostly that you have all that lovely color through all these snowy months..
I find they lift my spirits.. smile..
My sister-in-law gave me a small pumpkin before Christmas..
It was still good so yesterday I made a small batch of old fashioned pumpkin preserves...
I had saved a huge pumpkin to do these preserves but it started rotting before I had a chance to make them..
Today we had our town day.. smile..
I found this little cloth and bowls with violets on them..
Nice for Spring..
Also a book by Thomas Kincade..
I have not read his writing before..
Have any of you?
It sounds interesting and my friend used to collect his work..
We stopped by to visit my Mom and her husband as she is quite sick with the cold but doing a bit better..
Bless her heart..
We came home and Terry made a fire..
After it warmed up a bit I made a fish chowder for our supper..
Such a cozy evening..
Eating chowder on a tray with a mohair throw over my lap..
Just like an old lady... grin..
I did make a couple of Raisin Tea Breads, too..
Looking forward to having a slice with a nice hot cup of tea..
The breads were made with Earl Grey tea..
Should be interesting..
I am also trying to learn to do a bit of creative photo work ...
The lights of home on a cold winter's night..
We are nice and snug in there.. smile..
This is not much of a post, I am afraid; but just wanted to keep in touch with you all..
I have put the Blessed Hearth on Face Book and need to find the time to put a button on the sidebar..
But if you are on FB please put the Blessed Hearth in the search engine and like the page..
If you don't mind, that is..
Well, good night for now, my dears and hopefully I will have something a little more interesting next time..
Keep warm and God bless...
