A sweet present from my sister..
Thanks for dropping by the Blessed Hearth..
As you know we Canadians have kind of a weather penchant..
But to be fair I think we have reason to... eh?
Yesterday was a lovely day..
The sun was shining in the family room windows..
Lighting up my new cushion that I found at a thrift shop last week..
And looking out those windows we spied this sweet thing..
It is a Morning Dove, I believe..
As you can see there is not any snow..
Due to rain and mild temps for a couple of days our snow had disappeared..
But this what we saw out the same windows this morning..
It actually snowed all day and we received 28 cm. here in the south of the province although they had 38 in Fredericton.. ..
Not all that bad, really..
Since I knew there was a storm coming yesterday I made a nice large Chicken and Wild Rice soup but we ate it all..
Terry really liked it as he was in the woods all day and needed the sustenance ... smile..
I decided to make a pizza for lunch..
I haven't made one for awhile so we enjoyed it..
Terry enjoys meat so I make his 2/3 with meat and mine is all veggies..
I noticed that my bulbs had finally blossomed ...
Love my plants during the Winter..
Do you girls have lots of plants growing ?
I made some of my vinegar hair rinse, sewed up some cushion covers, did dishes and tried to find some ideas for Keepers..
Terry went out and cleared the drive and walkways..
All day our youngest son was on our minds as his business is snow removal during the Winter...
He loves it, though.. smile..
Another day draws to a close and a bowl of fish chowder on our lap is just lovely...
Thank you so much for your visit and I wanted to say that I am so enjoying your lovely comments and I hope that you readers enjoy each other comments, too..
You are all so interesting..
I wanted to include a couple of requested recipes ..
Sorry, I was so long on this one. Karen..
Hot Veggie Pickles..
1 quart cider vinegar
3 quarts water
1/2 cup of coarse salt
hot peppers of choice and to taste.
I use 3 pieces of jalapeno peppers which is quite mild ...
1/8 tsp. veggie oil per quart..
This batch of brine does 6 quarts of pickles..
Peel carrots, cut up sweet peppers, onions, cukes, green beans, lots of cauliflower and such of your choice to fill 6 sterilized quarts ..
Bring brine to boil and pour over veggies..
Add veggie oil and seal with sterilized lids ...
That is all there is to it...
Now, for Linda dear..
