old barn in Bloomfield
Just a little post for you of the last few days...
We have been having a bit of weather here in Eastern Canada..
Snow, freezing rain and then sun...
Must be Winter, eh?
A friend and I were invited to a lovely girl's home for dinner..
She is one of the Keepers of the Home group and is from Romania...
We were so happy to be invited to her lovely home..
She made us a marvellous meal..
Delicious home made Rolls..
Polenta and Soup...
You put a big scoop of the polenta in your soup and take a taste of both together..
So sweet of her to take the time to create all of this...
And then a Chicken Dish...
Lots of tender chicken and veggies...
The broth on this dish was so good and the bread soaked it up so nicely.. smile..
Then we did have a dessert which I forgot to take a picture of..
A glorious trifle..
All chocolate and caramel...
Then we spent a couple of hours just chatting...
Carmen is so talented and showed us some of her handwork..
She showed Lindsay how to make a scarf just while we sat about and chatted..
Rather nice, I think..
We had a blessed time talking about the Lord and His goodness to us..
How he leads our lives and fills us with joy..
Amazing how lives cross each other..
Romania or Canada we serve the same God and are apart of His family...
Thank you, Carmen and to your sweet family, also..
Then on Friday night we had some sweet company here for supper..
My Mom and Step-Father..
She brought me a bag of parsnips and a bag of lemons.. grin..
I have been making a drink each morning before eating anything..
A handful of parsley and juice from a lemon which I roll on the counter to get it juicy..
Place these along with a half of a cup of water in a blender or such..
The taste isn't great but not too bad..
It is supposed to help one lose weight..
Do that for 5 mornings then take a 10 day break before you do it again...
I saw this on the web somewhere...
Terry and I took a drive to our cottage on Saturday..
I had seen the weather and thought it was only 4 cm. of snow so could not be too bad..
But the further we went the worse it got...
It does not look like it in the photo but it was snowing then freezing rain and windy..
Please note that the driver does not have 2 hands on the wheel...
A one handed driver..
Just what every nervous old lady wants... lol..
What can one do but hang on tight and pray..
We finally arrived in St. Martins, though..
After checking the cottage.. ( the poor old place always looks so desolate in the winter) we drove down to the harbour..
I just can't imagine being out on the Bay in a fishing boat on a day like this but I am sure there were some..
Quite a day out..
Loved the wind, though..
We brought along a little snack to have with our coffee..
I love making a little simple lunch and taking it with us..
Do you ever do that?
Here is a project that I hope to get under way this week..
You dear followers who have been faithful down through the years may remember me making this a couple of years ago..
Well, I sold it at my shop and think I would like another for myself..
I saw this in the British edition of Country Living..
I think I will do it in reds and such...
Anyway, dear hearts this is all for tonight..
Just a motley post about a our days...
Nothing very exciting but busy just like everyone else..
A little catch up for you, though before I go..
How I make hair rinse..
2 tablespoons of cider vinegar with 1 cup of water..
Place in a squeeze bottle and add a few drops of essential oil to suit you..
I wash and rinse my hair and then squeeze some of this in ..
Rub through my hair and put a towel about it..
I do not rinse it out but that is up to you...
Lavender is lovely or Rosemary ...
I used Patchouli this time..
It is supposed to help your hair thicken and helps it to stay healthy..
You asked for my Chicken and Wild Rice recipe..
I don't have a recipe but will make it again this week and try to write down what I do...
If I forgot to answer any of your questions then please just remind me..
I am kind of forgetful lately.. smile..
Looking forward to hearing from you..
Either here on the blog or on the Face Book page.. xo
God bless you all..
