And in a heartbeat..we went from the first pic..to this one..Oui c'est cela la vie au Québec..en hiver~
I do..I love home..even in winter..I have a roof..a bed..my family lives w/ me or close by..a husband who makes paths..see his red marker? One of them..
And all that snow forefront is what falls off..slides off the metal roof..thank goodness Bella was safely parked away from the avalanche.
I have my stuff...warm coats and boots..layers..leggings..leotards..neck warmers and scarves..hot water..tea...coffee..~..lacking in the warm gloves dept..and a hat that suits me.The latter is very tough.I am a straw hat girl or baseball cap in dire circumstances....I had one hat I loved 100 yrs ago..like a Dr Zhivago big fur round box..I gave it away when I was 20.
I want it back..they don't make them anymore..I definitely cannot do tuques.
Suggestions? Earmuffs..not really warm enough..and they slide off..
Big fur..fake fur ones please come back in style;)
I have light..
I have my toys i.e. camera, baking supplies,paints,pencils,paper,brushes, a light box:)
X country skis..albeit old..and snowshoes..skates..and boots..
I have books to read..and music to listen to.
I have food and wine ..
I have a TV for 7.30-9 PM...Downton and now Doc Martin and movies and yes shameless.
I have a computer..
I have a garden I love in summertime.
That's what I love about home.
I have been painting..again from my class and another cute book by Zoe de Las Cases..but this one is called Parisian Street Style and Marie clued me in on it~
I like this book as much as the first one..
I did this painting on Hot Press paper..which..well when I received it..did not like it at all..but now I do..a lot.
It's flat..no texture...but I am getting used to it..you can teach an old dog new tricks.
In QC..our weather can go haywire too..a slight increase in temps and the snow ..well is rain..
At home our fave breakfast muffins these days are Ricardo's..they are bran muffins and so good..this time I have dates, that I plumped, in them..it makes a huge quantity..I bake 6 at a time..the mix lasts 30 days in the fridge..I have made them 4 times now.. I add 1/4 C more of oil..it just adds extra moistness.
For the wheat bran I use wheat germ.
You can find his recipe here..I am just so bad at typing..They are Super Bran Muffins..I used white and white whole wheat..a mixture.
I just love a muffin in the morning..
We're now alternating..our morning hot drink..green tea drinkers we are w/ lemon and ginger and honey..but we have switched it up..one morning coffee ,one morning tea.
We're on the edge as you can tell;)
The year of living dangerously.
The ornaments are put away..poor Santa..sniffing a stocking for many months;) Just noticed after!I made ind. containers/boxes/bags..felt..s..glass..old..newer..breakable..not..added a few unbreakables to the breakables ..in case....as my middle name is whatif...or Xerox..
A complete system restore has been done..the hoover passed..the floors washed..gleam..for 24 hrs..and then life starts all over again:)
Had lunch out..the memories walking in..be still my heart..from being in my twenties..thirties...forties..skipped my fifties,,back there in my 60's.
A whole different story..ies..
Just like the weather..from freezing cold ..to rain and grey skies and snow sliding off the roof~
That is why I need a muffin and tea in the morning;)
Hope you try them..get a big container..and store the batter and you are set for life.. well a month.
That Ricardo..he knows what he is doing~
