A Bit of Monday Morning Imagination for you.....

Hi there.. 
Merry Christmas! 
Come on in..

I will just put the kettle on.... 

Sit there by the fire.. 
Don't you love the lights this time of year?
We received a bit of snow this weekend.. 
Did you?  

I was just baking up these cookies.. We can have some with our scones and tea.. . 
They are homemade... smile.. 
Look at that!  
Even the birdies have their Christmas hats on!  grin.. 
Oh those are just a bit of wrapping up of presents and such that I work on at times.. 
Would you like a pair of slippers?  
That rug is cozy!! .. 

Doing up Christmas boxes to give away with a few cookies mixed in... 
Isn't that a great idea... 
Love the old tree on the farm all decorated for the season.... 

Signing up some Christmas cards to distribute about.. 
Do you have yours finished? 
It is Twinkle Time... smile.. 

We had our Christmas Concert last night and there was so much baking made for the time of fellowship with hot chocolate and hot cider...
 It was lovely!
How is your tea?
It is a special blend of Christmas Tea from the UK.. 
Would you like a scone or muffin|? smile.. ....

Well, I am so glad you stopped by ... 
Come again soon.... 

Oh my!  It is snowing again!  
Well, this is Canada as they say.. 
Merry Christmas my sweet friends... 

Just a little imagination used this morning on these lovely images from the web..

Sure wish I did have all those things ready and tea from England.. grin... 
Well actually, I do have tea from England that my sweet son in law brought me from London when he was there.. grin... 
That is about all I would have as my tree is not up yet.. Is yours? 
I do have some baking done and a little decorating and we did get snow... 
Hope you have a blessed week..
I am sure it will be a busy one trying to accomplish the things we need to do but loving the reason for the season each day.. 
He is awesome, eh?  

God bless....

Friday Night Christmas Rambling..

Good Evening my dears.. 
Another Friday night here in New Brunswick.. 

This is a bit of a rambling post of our doings the last few days.. 
Last weekend I met a sweet friend who has been following the blog for ages and she told me her favourite posts were the ones that were just about what we are up to.. 
So.. here we go, Laurie.. smile.. 
We have had a great week with several warm days that was great for doing a bit of outside stuff...
Been drying some apples..  
And making and doing a few crafts..
Drying pears for crafts and eating later during the winter.. 
I like them better then dried apples actually.. 
Using star anise.. Love it in pears or apples.. 

I thought I would show you my Gold Fish plant.. 
Pretty, eh?
  The blossoms do look like little gold fish.. 
We were out and about getting more boughs and such and 
we took the truck.. 
On the way home we had such a great laugh..
Charlie must have felt a bit crowded.. 
He put his back end way up on my shoulder..
Terry and I thought it was so funny!! 
I don't know why he did that..
There is plenty of room for him to lay down which he has always done before.. 
Guess he was trying to tell us something.. 
What a great dog, though.. No, really.. grin.. 

Made some Christmas jam.. 
Then one day this week it was so nice that I got to hang out all the bedding.. 

Not using the dryer makes Terry very happy.. 
And I do love the smell of line dried bedding, don't you?  

Making small gifts for some special friends.. 
Will show you the finished product after they receive them.. smile.. 
Cooked a turkey one day.. 
Had several meals with it.. 
Turkey with the works, of course.. Then Turkey Shepherds Pie, 
Turkey and Rice casserole and Soup.. 

Terry stringing some lights outside the window last night.. 
Can you see him?  
So happy to have coloured lights back in style.. 
So festive... 

Well, I guess this is all for tonight.. 
So much left to do and so little time to do it in but must say I am enjoying all the busyness... 
Not feeling too overwhelmed yet.. 

Tomorrow is cookie baking day for Sunday School on Sunday..
Making some date balls from a friend's recipe.. 
And not sure what other kind..  
We are having our Concert on Sunday evening if the weather is ok.. 
The forecast is for lots of snow tomorrow then freezing rain on Sunday so time will tell.. 
If not then it will be next Sunday, Lord willing.. 

Thanks so much for dropping by once again and look forward to hearing from you sweet friends.. 

Hope you are enjoying the season... 
Such a lovely time of the year.. 
God bless.. xo
