Welcome to the Blessed Hearth...
Just a little mish mash of a post about this and that..
Terry and I celebrated our 45th anniversary last week ...
We had hoped to go to our old farm for a week but there was just too much snow there yet..
We decided to take a wee trip to Maine for a little get away..
We had a great time..
There really is not much to do at this time of year but we went out to eat at a favorite place..
Texas Road House..
They have a wonderful salad and rolls ...
Steaks and deep fried pickles...
We did a bit of shopping and I visited my favorite shop in Brewer..
Just Between Friends...
Terry bought me a wonderful antique picture of a shepherd and his sheep..
I will show you when he gets it hung for me.. smile..
This is the little card that I found for him...
Years from now
when our faces are covered with wrinkles,
And our hearts
are full of memories,
a whole lifetime together, and smile,
And our smiles
will hold all the dreams, all the tears,
and all the laughter
that we have shared together,
knowing that we have always been
side by side.....
in love, in marriage, and in life.
Because years from now,
You will have become
what I always knew you would be....
My one and only forever love...
I loved the words and thought how wonderfully blessed we are to have been able to experience these words in our life...
The years have passed and our faces have wrinkles and our hearts have the memories of a whole lifetime together..
There have been better times and worse...
We have had more money and less money..
And there has been sickness and health.
But we have loved and cherished and will continue
to do so for as many more years as God spares us..
We are both thankful... smile..
After a couple of days we headed back home...
There was still lots of snow but we were amazed how much it had gone down in couple of days..
There is no place like home..
Making chicken soup with only one bone in chicken breast..
I love soup..
Here are some fabrics I bought ...
We are redoing over one of the spare bedrooms..
It has taken ages but he promised to try and finish it soon..
The two top fabrics are for that room..
I love ticking and it was on sale and then the bottom one
is for Shonda...
It was only a couple of dollars and is a big piece ..
Another loaf of bread was made..
The no knead bread made with whole wheat..
The link is on the side bar..
Then this weekend is Easter so have been making a few crafts..
These are not finished but are styrofoam eggs covered with napkins..
They need to dry and then I will spray glue on some sparkles..
I bought this pasta while we were away..
Only fifty cents a box and it makes 2 big salads..
This is a tuna fish, green onions, celery and a home made Caesar dressing with parm...
This is a little craft that signifies what Easter is really all about..
A little centrepiece ...
Tomorrow I need to find a little stone for the door,..
Not sure if I can as there is so much snow..
And a few pebbles for the doorway..
Not as nice as the ones you will see on the web but it is fine for now...
Anyway, this is all for tonight..
I hope you all have a Blessed Easter if I don't get another chance to post..
Thanks for visiting and your sweet comments..
