Started stitching next year's ornaments . and dittoing a few of this past year...because it has been so warm here..as in - 4 F as I type..I just checked..I promise..and it's been colder..this seems balmy.
So not too much snowshoeing going on..nor x-country skiing~
I do love winter.. I do..but temps like this prompt me to add an I Love Summer photo taken on our buried Adirondack chair~
That adorable middle pic in the collage is from Google..no source..Thank you..thank you..
A very dear gift Santa brought me apart from a very fashionable Lululemon scarf..and gardening tree ornaments..
was that cute cute apron w/ my 5 reasons I love baking..:Jacques..Lucas..Max..Noah and Oli~
And my very own Susan Branch Calendar:) From a girlfriend~:).. I now call her my SB girlfriend,because SB always talks about girlfriends..I named her that:)
I love it..Always have the desktop ME.. But I have to say..I love this one..of course what is there not to love about Susan Branch:)
January ..an encouragement to knit..so I knitted what I always knit..neck warmers..hope to widen..broaden my horizons:)
Had 2 sleepovers..lots of kiddie movies..popcorn..pancakes..sippie cups and not..puzzles..Minions..
Shirley Temples in Flûtes:)
Lots of little boys...Like the 3 second puzzle maker up above..:)
I think I mentioned hope last post..
Well that's a snippet of my 3 hopes in hyacinth bulb starters by the kitchen window..in the collage..
I then moved them to the sunroom..
I watched the Christmas special ..that I loved so much Call The Midwife..that site..the link gives it an 8.3 as a series..we give it a 10 J and I.
Sister Evangeline tried warming her hyacinths....like I am doing~
But like her I may realize they will bloom when the perfect moment arises.♥
P.S. Jerusalem..the cookbook was also a gift for me from a dear friend..
I made the hummus at the top with our beach friends' garlic..so good!
The New York Times has already published the recipe..so if you would like to try making this hummus here is the link~ Basic Hummus.
I like adding different toppings..the red peppers we roasted this past late summer will be delicious on this hummus~
I hope you enjoy it..I made half the recipe..my chickpeas took much less time than 20 minutes to be right..
I topped this one with toasted pine nuts a good drizzle of olive oil,parsley and spring green onions.
