Good Evening my lovelies...
Just a post of some web pics that I have enjoyed lately and a little midweek doings..
Someone said Spring is on it's way here and it put me in the mood for flowers..
Wild Spring flowers will soon be blooming here in the Maritimes of Canada..
Dandelions, May Flowers, Purple Violets, Trilliums, Dogtooth Violets and so many more..
Looking forward to making Dandelion Jelly, Violet Salves and such..
We have been blessed with some rain this week.. This is a good thing as it is causing the snow to disappear..
Feeling very sorry for Southern Ontario and the terrible ice storms they have had to get through and then more storms for tomorrow..
I guess we won't complain about our weather even though Spring seems still so out of our reach..
We are having a busy week..
On Sunday we had church and went out to lunch with friends, then Monday we had business (the dreaded taxes) appointments and on Tuesday doctor's appointments, a bit of shopping while we are out and about and Bible Study last night..
This morning I decided to get a few things finished before I had to get ready for another appointment this afternoon..
So I made a loaf of bread, a boiled ham dinner, cleaned the fridge all out and made an Israeli Salad, stripped the bed and washed it, emptied the dishwasher and put them away....
Oh yes and did a bit of embroidery when I take my wee breaks.. I am finding the picking up of it a bit addictive.. smile..
I am in my old flannel house nightgown.. You know the kind that is so great for housework but you wouldn't want to be caught dead in... I had washed my hair last night and had just tucked it up in a knot on top of my head... I looked so lovely!
I didn't sweep because I had hoped to vacuum and scrub nor did I clean off the table because it had a pile of books that I needed to drop off at the library when we went to the doctor, a parcel that I had been getting ready to send to Dustin and.....
Oh yes! My new Betta Fish... Skittles|!!
I had bought an old coffee pot at the Thrift store yesterday and a few fish bowl items and had put him in last night and that was all on the table.. I think Terry left his coat on the chair and a large bottle of pop sitting by the couch..
Whatever!! I expect you are getting the picture!! grin
In order for me to get a bunch of things done when we have been running the roads every day is to just do them and forget the finer things of life like cleaning up..
I must not forget about the tax papers everywhere because that is another thing we have been doing for a couple of weeks here and there...
Are you getting the jist of it all?
My typical type of household..
I was on my way in to get ready when I heard the dog barking..
I turned around and came out to see what was going on..
I thought it was Terry..
Went to look out the garage door and there were a couple of our dearest friends..
Oh my word!!
All I could do was tell Terry to get the dog and told them to go to the front door..
We have to put him in the kennel because he is a bit scary to people..
I ran for the bedroom to put some clothes on and just forgot about my hair..
They have been our friends for over fifty years and this is not the first mess they have witnessed!
She is immaculate and always looks like a fashion model..
And always so hospitable..
So lovely to be like that...
Life is what you make it!
So we just sat and had a wonderful chat after I decided to stop feeling stupid..
I always tell everyone to just give me ten minutes warning..
Cell phones are great for that..
When I said that to Roger, he just laughed and
said that wouldn't be any fun.... lol!!
I was going to say that I need to improve myself and get more organized but after all these years that is not about to happen..
What I plan on doing is getting a nice dinner ready, the house cleaned and myself dressed and invite them back.. haha
Love our friends..
We went to the doctor and I had a great time at the Library while Terry did some errands..
Then home and supper and here we are...
I did sweep as soon as I got back home... smile..
I was working on my journal the other day and came across a scrap of paper where I had wrote down a bit I had read in a book somewhere..
Thought I would share it with you..
It is the ancient science of household management..
Making delicious bread.. taking care of husband and tending your soul..
I do some of that stuff.. grin..
I had planned on doing a blog post tonight so I had taken a few pics of the bread, salad and ham dinner...
I love the broth on the dinner so I eat it like a soup..
Terry likes his on a plate..
Ham, potatoes, onion, celery, carrots and cabbage..
Add a bay leaf, hot pepper flakes and parsley..
This is my story for today dear hearts..
Dustin sent us this pic of the Alberta sunrise this morning..
Missing my boy...
Thank you all for visiting and your sweet comments and sharing the post on Face Book..
Look forward to hearing from you as always..
Have a great week..
He is faithful!!
