Hello... my friends..
Welcome to the Blessed Hearth this evening..
We are really having some Winter here in Eastern Canada..
Lots of snow..
We actually broke a long standing record for snowfall in one storm this week..
Terry left yesterday morning after the storm to help our youngest son who has a snow removal business..
He says it is hard to get around the city (Moncton) and St. John has declared a state of emergency..
This says a lot since we Canadians are very used to lots of snow..
I guess that there was such a huge amount at once that the streets are only one way..
I expect they have it mostly cleared by now but tonight they are forcasting that we are getting another 35 cm...
Fourth storm this week..
Only in Canada, eh?
Soup is on.. Surprise... surprise.. smile.
This is the easiest soup ever..
Just chop up some squash, carrots, leeks, celery and onions..
Simmer away in some chicken broth and then add salt and pepper to taste..
Use your stick blender to blend and voila..
Delicious soup in half an hour..
Oh yes and I made a loaf of the no knead bread..
The recipe is found HERE..
The pic is above ..
I just made one loaf and forgot to add the rosemary..
Just so you can imagine how much snow we have..
Here is hubby snow blowing the front walkway..
Our daughter sent me a pic of a wee bit of snow on one of her decks...
Just cozy, eh?
She is getting a bit claustrophobic, I think... smile..
I spent a bit of time this week redoing our mantel...
I will share a bit more with you in another post..
I think I have it just about right..
Then I am cleaning and redoing our bedroom...
We have a water bed which I love dearly.. grin..
No nicer place to be on a stormy night then here..
A heated bed and cozy flannel wrapped duvet..
Pretty comfy... right?
Oh yes and the window open a bit at least..
I worked on my bed runner today..
I had not forgotten it but it is a bit more work then I anticipated..
It is now all sewn together..
I need to line it but finally figured that out later today..
Hopefully, I can finish it tomorrow...
Anyway, I know I seem a bit consumed with the weather tonight.. Sorry..
I had to add this..
Canadians figure we may as well laugh as cry..
So we make fun of ourselves.. grin..
Hope you are having a great week and that all is right in your corner of the world..
These storms are nothing compared to all that is going on in the world..
We need to pray for our world..
Thanks for visiting, dear hearts and we will try and have a chat later..
Welcome to the new followers of the blog and thank you to you sweet girls who liked my Face Book page..
So glad to have you all..
I think that I should have a little give away when we reach the 500 followers mark..
What do you think?
Would you like some Canadian coffee, perhaps..
Take care, everyone and God bless..
