Happy Saturday night everyone..
Hope you are all having a great weekend..
It is a cold day here but we have had some weather the last few days.
Snow then rain then deep freezing..
Oh well, it is winter here in Canada...
And the month of January has passed and February is upon us..
Have been loving the days of January..
Some of the joys of being retired is sleeping a bit late in the mornings..
Especially, on windy blowy days where it is just so cozy to stay snuggled up in the warm blankets..
Making porridge with a drizzle of maple syrup for breakfast..
Doing the morning routine which we are used to..
One of the things I usually do is to strike a match to some incense or a candle if it is a dull cloudy day, especially.. smile..
A new box of White Sage that smells lovely..
Then on with the chores for the day...
There is always laundry, tidying up and such to do..
Making soup for lunch almost always..
Asian Noodle Soup..
Some of my own sprouts on top..
Cleaning up a little thrift store find..
A wee silver basket filled with 4 fruit napkin rings..
Love cloth napkins and napkin rings..
Putting labels on homemade marmalade..
Taking little drives..
This one to Sussex..
Trying out new recipes for supper..
Stuffed Apples from the Country Living UK magazine..
The apples are stuffed with a pork mixture..
A lovely old church in it's Winter White..
One of our go to meals..
Maritimer's Fish Chowder..
Bought some wonderful cook books at the Thrift stores..
Love reading them and finding a recipe or two to try..
Dinner Chez Moi is by a girl Laura Calder from our province of New Brunswick..
Do you remember me saying that Terry had spray painted some pots copper colour for me to plant my herbs in??
I planted them all.. 5 of them and for some reason every pot broke.
Anyway, I bought 5 new pots and replanted them..
They look lovely..
The light was not good for me to take a pic..
Next time.. smile..
Enjoy the snowy days..
So long as it is not too fierce and our children are not travelling..
Makes me want to make soup.. lol..
I guess I would be making it anyway..
Using up veggies that was canned last summer..
We had pizza one day with this great 2 ingredient crust recipe..
We loved this and Terry told me to make it again soon..
You can just make your own self rising flour.
To make your own, combine 1 cup of all-purposeflour with 1 1/2 teaspoons of baking powder and 1/2 teaspoon of salt. ..
Perhaps we will have a Quesadilla for breakfast..
A drizzle of hot sauce and a bit of sour cream...
Rambling along here..
Making some tea towels and such..
during an afternoon..
I have also been cleaning and sorting and getting rid of stuff..
Doing the pantry and cupboards, drawers and book shelves..
Next week I hope to attack a few closets.. smile..
One fun chore I did was to make some Celery Pickles..
They are delicious!!
The recipe came from the cook book
Most evenings I will have a glass of Clamato Juice with a Celery Pickle..
So easy to make and such a treat...
Well, dear hearts I guess this is it for tonight..
Just a little ramble and roll for you once again..
Tomorrow is the Lord's Day!
Read last night in Isaiah to call the Sabbath a delight..
And truly it is ..
We are so blessed to live in a country where we can gather together on a Sunday and worship the King of Kings and the Lord of Lords..
You sweet friends have a great week and we will chat again soon..
Thank you for the new followers of the blog here and on Face Book and for all of your dear comments..
God bless you this night...
