So glad you dropped by ..
Today is Sunday and another week soon will begin..
But for today we are having a day of rest..
This morning we gathered at our little church and was so happy that the huge storm they had forecast did not happen..
Although, the roads were messy because we did get some snow there were folks who made it there..
I so love walking through the doors of this wee church..
My heart swells with the love that I feel there and the Spirit of the Lord is real and genuine..
There were songs of praise and then Pastor preached another message that spoke to our hearts.
Afterwards the coffee was perked and we had a bit of fellowship..
I love this time because we get to catch up with everyone's week especially since we had the huge storm last Sunday..
We came home and had our Sunday dinner..
Sorry, no pic.. smile.
Fish... Mashed, veggies and a salad..
Just ordinary food but it tasted very good on this Winter's day..
Terry was busy doing his thing so I thought I would take a few pics and have a chat with you all..
I have a sweet cousin who lives just up the road a ways from us ..
He is from my Dad's side of the family..
His Mama is my first cousin..
Almost all of Dad's family are horse people...
They love and own horses...
Although, Terry was brought up on a farm and had horses and my Dad had horses we do not..
I seem to have missed that gene even though I went riding a lot as a child..
Well, this dear lad has a sweet wife and two little ones who all love horses and have such beautiful pics on Face Book that I asked if I could borrow a few just to show you ..
I have received several emails and comments of girls who live in far flung parts of the world who are mesmerized by Canada's snow..
I thought you might like to see these beauties outside on a Winter's day..
My cousin has a wee wee lad who is already learning to hold the reins.. grin..
Isn't that adorable?
Just imagine the creak of the sleigh and the bells jingling..
I know it is cold but they are bundled up and having a blast...
We Canadians are a tough lot.. eh?
For the rest of the post I just took a few pics from my lazy boy looking into the Living Room..
Lots of snow covered apple tree branches..
The lamps are lit on this late afternoon...
An old tea set...
I bought this many years ago at an Antiques Flea Market..
Lovely old pattern sitting on a sweet patchwork runner that a dear friend made for me..
Also, many years ago..
Looking outside to the apple trees and hydrangea bush..
All sound asleep but hopefully will start to awaken soon..
I love Spring..
That is all I am going to say.. smile..
I think I will go and make a hot cup of tea and have a cookie
I made these yesterday for our fellowship at church ...
But I kept a few to have with our tea today..
Would you like the recipe..
It is from our daughter-in-law, Tammy who is an awesome baker..
1 c. butter or margarine, softened
1 1/2 cups of white sugar
2 1/4 cups of flour
1/2 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. salt
1 tsp. vanilla
I add a grate or two of nutmeg.. optional
1/4 cup sugar for rolling cookies..
Oven 350 degrees F.
Cream together butter and sugar until light.
Add egg and mix well..
Stir in flour, baking powder, salt, vanilla and nutmeg.
Scoop out cookie dough and roll in small bowl of sugar..
Set on cookie sheet and press down lightly with fork or your two fingers..
Bake for 10 minutes or until just lightly browned..
Leave them on the tray for a few minutes then transfer to cooling rack.
Tammy found this recipe on the internet..
That is all for today except to remind you all of my little give away that you can find HERE..
Thank you, everyone for your kind responses and comments..
I had to clarify a few things in the comment section so hopefully you won't find it too complicated.. smile.
I wanted to explain that on the top part of my sidebar is my Face Book badge..
You do not need to belong to FB to be able to read this ..
You can just click on the badge and check to see if there is anything new.
I am trying to put some small thing on or bring up a past post..
