Good Evening my dears..
Hope you had a great weekend..
Another week has rolled past in January..
I think the days seem longer, don't you?
I am so enjoying this month..
The storms have not been horrendous yet and I love the evenings..
During the summer my husband does not know enough to come inside.. He is out there until after dark most days working and it makes me feel guilty being inside and not accomplishing much..
The winter is different because we have supper and then just relax..
I can enjoy myself because there is no guilt.. lol...
Anyway, during the day I do try to accomplish a few chores and January always means marmalade..
It takes a bit of fussing but it is worth the effort..
The recipe is HERE..
Then the other day I did this fun thing..
When I had my shop I made up some lights with little homespun rags tied between them.. I found them and decided they would provide some extra light for reading when I go to bed..
Then as always we have soup...
Home made turkey stock and lots of veggies..
The summer savoury isn't added yet..
We here in New Brunswick have had some beautiful days..
Lovely light white snow along with some lovely sunny days..
I finally finished my little owl bunting..
Just a little touch of homemade for the winter..
I know it is kind of simple but with the lights it is a nice change during the evenings..
This hangs on the edge of the mantel..
Another little owl..
I made this a year or two ago..
On with the show.. smile..
The last while I have been trying to perfect a few basic recipes..
This was this weeks project..
Let's say that I am getting there..
Just a few more tries... smile..
Sunday night supper..
We are so enjoying the canned green beans and mustard pickles..
Trying to make sure we are using up the food we put up for Winter..
And then there is Charlie..
Penny was asking about Charlie.. He is doing fine..
Thank you for asking, dear..
He goes with us where ever we go..
He seems to know we are going away before we do..
We go get ready and when we come into the Family Room he is prancing around waiting.. grin..
He's a good dog.. No, really!!
Trevor was here with Joel yesterday..
They had been to the woodlot and dropped by..
Trev does everything he can to make friends with Charlie but no hope..
The dear lad just smiles when Charlie growls and chews at him and says he is a good dog!
I think I would give up but he just keeps trying.. smile..
I had just taken a banana bread out of the oven and they had no breakfast or lunch..
So.. we fried up some eggs and instead of toast they had banana bread.. smile..
Love having the kids drop by..
Life is good..
And God is good..
All of the time..
Take care my friends and thanks so much for your visit..
Oh here is the link for the banana bread..
So fast and so easy..
I posted about making the bread Here..
God bless.. xo
