Good Evening, my dears.
How are you all doing?
We had our first substantial snow fall last night..
Woke up to find this out on our deck this morning..
Pretty but not really welcomed by me..
What can you do, though..
It is Winter here in Canada and this is what we do..
Shovel snow.. smile..
More to come tonight with rain so it will no doubt be a bit messy..
Are you dear things all ready for Christmas?
I am never ready..
It just arrives and I stop.. smile..
One of my favourite breakfasts here..
Multigrain toast with mashed avocado and sliced tomatoes..
Do you like that..
I do open face and avocado is good for you..
That's my story anyway..
Making a few bough things..
I forgot to take a pic after it was filled in and finished but when Terry hangs it then I will take one...
Bought a basket of pears...
Made another big batch of fruit salad..
I think I am hooked on this as it is such a refreshing treat..
Anytime of the day..
Two large containers..
One for the fridge and one to freeze..
Then I dried a tray full..
I glue these onto gift tags ...
After they are dried, of course..
Just a bit different..
A pic I took this morning, too..
Lots of apples still on the trees..
Nice for the birds and the visiting deer that we have all Winter..
The soup junkee is coming out in me again and a day like today is meant for soup, eh?
Mediterranean Vegetable Soup using the soup base once again..
Oh and this is another fresh simple Christmas decor..
Start with a nice bowl..
This one is copper..
Then start with some twigs, pine cones, dried orange slices, cinnamon sticks, fresh pine and I used some pomegranates that I dried last year..
Draw a heart on an orange and fill it in with cloves..
Or you can do a star or what have you..
This is on my kitchen table on top of a small red table riser that my cousin Val made for me..
Shonda and I took a weekend trip to Portland, Maine this past weekend..
Not a great pic but what can I say..
I am what I am.. smile..
Shonda always looks great..
This is a pic she took of us setting off..
She phoned me at 7:30 am and wanted to know if I would go..
I will call you back I told her..
I checked in with Terry and he said to go and so 5 minutes later I am calling her and saying I am showered and my hair is washed ...
Almost ready to go... grin..
I must have known I needed to do that as soon as I woke up..
We had a great time..
Staying in nice hotels and wonderful food not to mention great shopping..
She said we were celebrating my birthday which is coming up soon..
So blessed with such wonderfully sweet children..
I guess this is it for tonight my friends..
Just a bit of this and that and not much of anything..
Thanks so much for stopping by and I hope to hear from you all..
So sweet of you to leave your lovely notes..
Take care, now...
