Good Evening everyone..
Welcome to the Blessed Hearth ...
Hope you are all doing well and not in the midst of a storm as we are here in Eastern Canada..
Lots of freezing rain and wind and more rain..
I am sitting here anxiously waiting for news that our daughter and her husband have landed safely from their trip to the Bahamas..
They were supposed to land this morning but the plane had to return to Toronto due to landing conditions here..
Then we had a text from Shonda that they would be leaving again at 5 pm but have not heard anything else thus far..
I checked with the airport site and it says the flight from Toronto is delayed... sigh...
I am not worried....
I just want them to be safe at home..
All you mothers know what I mean..
The last post I mentioned that we were planning on going to the farm on Saturday and that we did...
Not as much snow as usual as you can see..
Terry and Dustin have lots of wood piled and the dear man went inside and started the fire in the stove and turned on the electric heaters while I read in the car for about 15 minutes..
Charlie played around the yard..
He loves it up there and just runs and runs..
I checked out our flagpole..
I think we may have had a bit of wind up there lately, eh?
You know what that means in the Spring..
Another episode in the life of a wife with a husband on a ladder.. lol
You ladies who follow the blog remember my stories about that..
I also noticed that my summer bunting is still flying in the breezes..
I will need to make a new one also in the Spring when we get back up there..
Well.. the sad story is that when Charlie and I went into the house I found that I could not stay..
My arthritis has been acting up and I knew if I stayed I would be suffering all week so we just turned off the heats and went back home..
I had packed food for our meals but ended up making it here..
Terry said it is better not to take a chance..
Enough about that..
We had Sunday supper and I made an apple cobbler..
Forgot to take a pic of finished product.. smile..
I wish I had a wonderful recipe for that but it was just so so..
Do you ladies have one that is awesome?
Then I made tea and just had a wonderful time looking at books and such..
Planning our next Keepers of the Home day..
It is to be on February 11, I think...
Probably going to be a heart day..
I will post about it as soon as I know the details..
Yesterday and today I made a couple of batches of egg rolls..
We learned to make these at Keepers if you recall..
So easy to make really..
Then this was our Sunday supper..
Very boring but comfort food..
Salisbury steak, gravy, mashed, carrots and turnip...
And lots of pickles of course..
Really trying to use up preserved and frozen foods this Winter.
I love love the canned beans and such ..
Really hope to do up a lot more this year...
And of course my favourite is the soup base that I have posted about so many times.. Thanks to dear Carmen..
This is just some vintage fabrics I found in my decluttering process..
This morning Terry and I spent over 2 hours in my workshop in the basement..
We got through 3 big shelves.. That is all..
Oh my !!
Over 20 years in the craft and shop business and I have not been through the stuff since I retired.. lol
How do I get rid of so much good stuff is beyond me..
I can't burn it all and I doubt if any thrift store wants that much so I will have to divvy it up amongst them, I guess..
I don't even know if anyone uses that kind of craft supplies anymore..
Grapevine wreaths, swags and so on and so on.. grin..
Then I still make a few things yet and have our Keepers meetings so I want to keep some of it ...
I guess we will be going down most days for an couple of hours and hope we get through it by next year..
That is all I can do..
Our kids will be so relieved to know that I am even trying..
Well, dear hearts this has been a long boring story..
Once again, I apologize for that..
When I first started the blog it was with the warning that it would only be about my daily life..
Nothing very outstanding but real anyway, eh?
Take care of yourselves and thanks so much for your sweet comments..
I was going to post a recipe for lemon desert but our hydro is flickering so I had best shut this down..
Talk soon and God bless.. xo
