Hello there everyone..
Welcome to the Blessed Hearth ..
So glad you dropped by..
Well, we are having some changing weather here in Eastern Canada..
Terry and Dustin (our youngest son) spent a couple of days last week working at our old farm up in the Kent Hills..
Those of you who have been following the blog for awhile know we have this old place that we both love and visit whenever we can.. Mostly during the Spring and Fall but when we have a good Winter like we are having so far this year we get to even go on Winter days..
Terry always goes even when the lane is plugged with snow.. He just snowshoes in..
He loves it.. He makes a fire and heats up a can of beans on top of the stove and just enjoy his own company... smile..
He putters around doing this and that but last week Dustin went up with him for two days to do some work..
Dustin loves it there, too so I think they enjoyed themselves..
I sent lunch both days and Terry sent the leftovers home with him.. smile...
They finished the pantry floor and got all the walls finished in the back porch..
I was excited to go see what was accomplished so we headed out there on Saturday..
It was a beautiful day as you can see..
The old place looked sweet on this January day...
They had fires on so the house was quite warm and it did not take long to heat it up..
I loved the floor and was excited to stack stuff on the shelves...
Then we had dinner..
Place mats sent to us from our dear friends the Mayo family from Wisconsin..
Aren't they lovely ?
Just a bit of simple farm fare..
Terry's kind of meal..
Steak, mashed, squash, carrot and parsnip mix...
A little Israeli Salad on the side...
Then later after all was cleaned up...
A bit of Magic Fruitcake made with my own Mincemeat and a lovely cup of tea..
A couple of pantry shelves..
Slow but sure it is all coming together..
I will share more pics as we get things finished..
We need to hook up an old porcelain sink and a cubby...
This is an old cupboard that was given to us last week from a sweet friend..
It is full of little cubby spaces..
I left it just as it was except cleaning it ...
I found the little red cow curtain at the Thrift store this week and we got it hung..
I was going to make it but this was only $2.00...
All in all it was a lovely day..
Dustin was in and blew out the snow as a surprise for his Dad.. smile..
He was pretty happy about that..
We went up again today and there is not hardly any snow ...
We have had rain and mild temps the last couple of days so the snow has left for awhile anyway...
I guess this is it for today, my friends..
Thanks so much for your sweet visit and I look forward to hearing from you all..
Your comments are what make the blog so much fun...
Keepers is on Saturday and I will share the recipes with you after..
Isn't God good..
So thankful for all of his blessings this day and for being able to enjoy these times together..
Most people would rather be going on a cruise but this is what turns our crank..
Florida and such just does not call our names.. grin..
But that old farm shouts it out to us...
Sending hugs your way..
