Happy Friday Evening to you all..
Another rainy day here in New Brunswick and warm..
We have been having glorious weather on the East coast of Canada..
Someone said it was 20 degrees Celsius today..
I had hung a few things on the line early this morning as it was so windy.. They didn't dry really but I took them off before the rain started..
Falls like this one are such a blessing because the snow will come I am sure..
Right now the rain is pouring and hitting the windows..
My husband and two sons are out there hunting..
They will be wet by the time they get home.. smile..
There is usually a pot of soup on the go here once again..
Soup season for this soup junkie..
Enjoying the Vegetarian Magazines I picked up at a yard sale a few weeks ago..
Dustin always called me an almost vegetarian..
Last weekend we woke on Saturday morning and Terry suggested we take a little trip to Bangor..
Of course, I was up for that so it didn't take us long to get going..
So beautiful with the farm silos in the distance..
We had a good time but I am so disappointed!
One of the things I love to do when we go to Bangor or even around here shopping has been going to the Thrift and Antique stores.. eh?
Since we sold our cottages and brought home so much stuff I don't even want to go in to the stores and all I bought were a few books..
Oh and the dearest little petit point needleworked change purse..
Black with wee roses and only four dollars..
I should have taken a pic.. sorry..
But I did enjoy visiting this shop so much..
We always stay in Brewer and this is on Main, I believe..
It is a hippie- want- to- be's idea of a great grocery store..
There are organic everything to start with..
An organic coffee bar and such..
Homemade Laundry soaps that you turn on a tap and fill glass bottles and buy it that way.. Homemade stain remover soap sticks.
An old laundry tub is part of the decor..
Then there is an area with fermenting supplies...
Dried veggies and fruits.. Homemade soap, candles, soy tarts and toiletries and so on and so on..
Dear Terry just waits in the car..
Not really his cup of tea.. I had fun, though..
Anyway we had a lovely meal and an early night..
The wind was blowing.. smile..
Then the next day we took our time coming home..
A ship was in at the St. John harbour..
Monday I had a big bowl of ripe tomatoes to do up..
I really am getting tired of preserving stuff..
Pico de Gallo and Spaghetti Sauce...
More of Carman's Soup Flavouring preserved..
Parsley Root is still out at the farm growing..
This is the first time we have planted it and though we were late getting it in I have still enough to use..
It looks like parsnips and tastes like parsley..
I did buy a couple of new kitchen tools..
Mine were old and took a lot of space..
These were on sale and really quite small but efficient..
Then yesterday our youngest son and I had a town day together..
We had a good time..
Shopping and out for lunch...
Reading this you would think that I love to shop..
I don't usually... smile..
We visited one of my fave markets and bought a big bag of apples to make our favourite apple sauce..
For you new followers of the blog here is the recipe..
I use either apples or pears..
Here is the link, too..
I have most of my plants back from the farm and a few more things..
My sewing machine and salve making supplies and it will be done for another year..
A bit late due to the selling of the cottage and shop but we are home..
And I am so happy to be here..
I hope you have a great weekend..
We are having a family supper tomorrow night in Sussex so am looking forward to that..
One of God's greatest blessings..
He thought it was so important it was His priority in His creation..
Thank you, Lord..
God bless, dear hearts..
Thanks for stopping by and I love your dear notes..
I enjoy every one of them..
