Good Evening dear hearts..
Just a little post for this Friday evening..
Hope you all have a great weekend..
We are having pretty good weather here in New Brunswick..
It is certainly my kind of winter..
Not a lot of snow thus far and many times it is rather mild with rain and wind..
I don't think it has even been really cold like it used to be when we were kids..
Or perhaps I just forget.. smile..
Terry and I may be heading for a day at the farm tomorrow..
Not sure yet..
We don't seem to make plans but just go with the flow..
Terry was up today and the driveway is clear. He made a fire and that will make it a bit easier to heat for tomorrow..
It will be just for the day but we will see...
This post has some pics from our week..
Doing ordinary things like watering the plants..
Did you know that if you save the water that you use to wash your rice then use it for your plants that they thrive on it..
I read that somewhere and have been doing it and find the plants do like it.. They told me so.. grin..
It doesn't hurt them anyway..
Drying out a few more apples and limes slices...
Making Mojo Sauce and Spaghetti...
When we go shopping I try to find the bargain fruit and veggies and then dry them..
We went to town yesterday and did a bit of shopping..
The roads were a bit slick but not too bad..
It was a good day..
We usually take Charlie with us..
He has his blankets and loves just sleeping in the back..
We are not in one store for more then an hour and he just sleeps away...
I visited the thrift store that had a fire and it is lovely and clean and tons of stuff...
I found some books, a couple of lovely cups and a jean blazer.. smile..
Love thrift shopping! Do you?
This week has also been spent in our living room decluttering and I am so glad that I have actually finished..
Found some lovely treasures..
Drawers full of stuff but much less in them now..
Came across a picture of my great aunt and uncle whose dining room set I have..
They were married in 1934...
I loved reading the newspaper clipping about their wedding and it was fun to find that I have inherited a few of their wedding gifts..
The blue and white china belonged to her..
The other beautiful water pitcher and glasses belonged to my maternal grandparents..
It was one of their wedding gifts and is over 100 years old..
My Mom just gave it to me and I love it..
Since my sister and I were wee girls we were told that it and a lovely pink glass basket were to be ours someday..
Nadine received the basket..
Mom is beginning to try to give us some of her precious things and we cherish them just as we do her....
I now have 3 boxes of stuff to give away!!
Next week, Lord willing I will start another room.. smile..
Well, my dears I will go for now..
We have been watching the Inaugural proceedings..
We pray for the USA and hope that all will go well for them..
Thanks so much for stopping by and I look forward to hearing from you sweet friends..
ps.. I will try to post the lemon dessert recipe next post... xo
