Just Grateful....

my fave view

love love books..

I have some lace like this.. 

one of the farm animals I love.. 
also donkeys and chickens.. 


isn't this dining set interesting.. 

so pretty.... 

sweet!!

so homey, eh? 
I don't know what it is that I love about hanging teacups.. 
notice the dried fruit... oranges, I think... 

yes, there is a cat.. 
they always make a house look cozy... 
our old cottage by the sea.. 
comfy beds even if they are ancient.. smile.. 

Happy Friday Evening! 
So glad you dropped by this night.. 

Just posting a few images that I noticed on the web the past while.. 
Something about each of them captured my attention .. 
And a couple of my own... 
The horses are in my fave view near by and the bedroom is in our old cottage by the sea.. 

I love images that I can explore and perhaps learn some little tidbit that inspires or humors me in some way.. 
Are you like that?  

When I read books I am the same way.. 
Reading and trying to remember.. 
Not as easy as it used to be.. smile.. 

We have had such a stormy week here in New Brunswick that the weekend with no storms in view is very welcome!  
There were around 100 cm. in many places and Terry said we had that much with the drifting... 
Anyway.. 
You know we Canadians can talk about the weather till we bore everyone else silly.. Sorry.. 

I hope you have a great weekend where ever you have a spot in this big old world of ours... 
 And I am sending you hugs to where ever that may be.. 
And let's be grateful... smile.. 
God is sooo good!

It is all about Love...


Hello everyone.. 
Happy Valentine's Day to you from us...

It has been an exciting few days here .. 
The Maritime provinces of Canada has been hit with a huge 
snow blizzard.. 
One of the wildest I can remember seeing for a long time.. 
We collected anywhere from  50 to 80 centimetres of snow depending where you are and the winds were wild.. 
We have gone from bare fields to huge banks of snow.. 
Everything closed down from stores, schools to most of our roads... 
But all is well that ends well and we are all digging out the best we can..

We had our little party the other night and it was fun!  
I took a couple of pics and then when everyone arrived I forgot all about my camera.. 
So sorry but we had a good turnout and the food that everyone brought was great.. 
We love the fellowship with our friends...

And Valentine's Day is here.. 
Heart Day.. 
So thankful for all the love in my life.. 
Especially, the love of my Lord!  

We love so many ..... 
Our family, friends and you, dear readers.. 
Praying you all have a day filled with love

Thanks for dropping by and leaving me your little love notes.. smile.. xo

God bless.. 

Here is a link to a post that I did awhile ago.. 
It is called Old Love..

A wee posting..


Hello dear hearts.. 
Just wanted to say hello and let you know that I have responded to each blog comment last post... 
That is now on my agenda to do so but you know me and how consistent I am not.. smile.. 

Found the pics on the web and as I am 
  a Laura Ingalls Wilder fan I thought I would share them with you this afternoon.. 

I have just scrubbed my kitchen floor and thought I would do this and as I am using my new desktop computer I only had a few pics downloaded and chose these.. 

Hope you lovelies are having a great week.. 

We are preparing for a Valentine Supper here for the Keepers and friends on Saturday nite so this old house is getting a few corners cleaned and cobwebs torn down.. grin.. 

We have Bible Study tonight and Pastor is teaching on the Book of James.
 Excellent.. 

Thanks for visiting and leaving your dear notes.. 
God bless.. 
Very wise words.. xo

Usual Winter Pottering..


Hello my dears... 
Just a short post here tonight.. 
We here in the south of the province are pretty well over the ice storm we had last week but people to the north are still without hydro ... 
The poor dears.. 

We have just been doing the usual Winter things around here.. 

Morning rituals are still the same.. 


Tomato on Toast with Avocado is still a favourite... 

Looking after my plants..  


I almost lost this Sage plant but thankfully it is coming back.. 
Most of my plants are in the Sun Room... 
As is an old china cabinet that belonged to Terry's grandfather... 


I cleaned it out this week and discarded some of the stuff... 
Still sorting and such.. 

Went through the book shelves again... 



Giving away another big bag.. 
Terry says I won't be long replacing them... smile.. 

Oh I did want to share this incredible Apple Crumble recipe with you.. 
Remember I have been wanting one.. 


Well, I came across this old cook book while going through them and found the recipe in it... 

Fruit Crumble
4 cups of sliced peeled apples ( I used 5)
2 T. sugar (opt)
cinnamon and or nutmeg to taste.. 
Place in a shallow pan.. 
Crumble together 
1/2 cup of whole oatmeal 
1/2 cup of flour
2/3 cup of brown sugar 
1 x 8 ounce cream cheese 
Spread over apples and bake in 350 degrees F. oven for 45 minutes or until apples are tender and crumble golden brown.. 
Serve with ice cream or whipped cream.. 

We did not have ice cream with it and it was still delicious! 
Hope you like it... 

My Mom gave me some of my grandmother's handkerchiefs so I have been do up an album to display them.. 

This is the album which she gave me several years ago.. 
They are mostly lovely but a couple are worn out and rather ragtag.. 
So sweet to think of her using them so much.. 

Really enjoying my fermented veggies and canned green beans.. 

We are starting to think about the garden this year if we go back to the farm for the summer and I certainly will try to do a lot more of these.. 

We had 3 bags of cranberries still in the fridge after the holidays (if you can imagine) and they were still fine so I made a big batch of cranberry juice.. 
I added orange, lemon and anise to the mixture.. 
Very tasty.. 

I want to apologise for not posting the Lemon Dessert recipe but I can not find it..
I must have stuck it in another box or something.. 
It will show up eventually I am sure then I will post it for you.. 

Hope you all have a great weekend... 
Looking forward to hearing from you and thanks for stopping by.. 
I did respond to a few of your comments last post and will try again this time.. 

Take care and God bless..
 xoxo
