Good evening my dears..
Welcome to the Blessed Hearth today..
Yesterday was a lovely sunny day so Terry and I headed up to the farm for the day..
There are always a few chores we like to do there..
I usually mix up a loaf of bread...
I took our ham bone and started a boiled dinner to have for later..
Love having something simmering away on top of the old wood stove..
Terry hooked up our new hot water heater..
It will be great to have hot water there again..
The last one bit the dust and we just kept heating water for dish washing but soon we will be staying overnight and we will need more for showers and such... smile..
Tuesday was our town day and look what I found at the Thrift Store..
This wonderful huge cast iron pan..
Not sure what it was meant for initially but I am sure it will be put to good use there..
What would you use it for?
Here are a few other things I have picked up at thrift stores..
A couple of lamps, the little pitcher and basin one is for a bedroom, a vase with a bird on it, a plate stand and this wee cubby ...
I decided to paint it green ...
I did get it finished but forgot to take a pic..
Terry needs to hang it for me and then I will show you..
I think it will be my spice cupboard...
I was busy doing something and when I went out into the back room (porch) . .. we really don't know what to call that room but it is where you walk into the house and has the old wood stove there.. smile..
Anyway... Terry said he was heating up his lunch and this is how he eats when I am not there.. lol..
Sure was a lot easier then making a meal..
He just stuck in his fork and ate away..
No dirty dishes.. grin..
The bread is baked..
Just in time for a little snack...
Along with a bit of home made Bakeapple or (Cloudberry as they call it in Newfoundland) jam I had made in the Fall...
T'was good with a hot cup of tea.. smile..
Picked up the book at thrift also..
Thought it looked interesting as it was all letters written in the early 1900s to a woman's family...
It was good for three quarters of it and then I kind of disagreed with some of her philosophies but interesting non the less..
We are back home today...
Hope you are all having good weather where ever you may be..
Lots of rain and wind here but at least it is warmer..
Thanks so much for dropping by and love reading your little notes that you leave..
Take care, dear friends.. xo
