It's a snowy winter here..February already!

 


Some of his winter tools



I never tire of his paths..



This is such a great everything cake..Ina's blueberry crumble cake..
I used an 8 inch springform..
I omitted the lemon..we just finished lemon poppy seed cupcakes..
added more vanilla and cardamom.
Jacques had a piece after dinner and later said those exact words..
We don't eat a thing after dinner. from 6  PM till the next morning.. nothing.So I thought this was a true compliment:)






I loved this series so much.We are fans of Yellowstone..but this one is very different.
Great actors..dialogue..cinematography.
Taylor Sheridan is a wizard.
Elsa is mesmerizing.
Loved her so much.I hope she wins something..anything.
Kleenex required..in my case.We both gave it 5 stars.Just started 1923 and I am having a hard time LOVING it..


Also All Creatures Great and Small..so sweet..the tempestuous  horse..God Bless Siegfried:)
A note..  because some  may think I watch TV all day..LOLOLOL.
Night only after dinner and bath..7-9.



The porch views back and front.Snowy snowy snowy:)
You have heard of Hygge..
Norway has Koselig:)
You can read about it here:)
Enjoy.

  1. I can see by the paths how deep the snow is! This past weekend we finally had some measurable snow fall, Too cold to melt anything but the sky is blue and the sun is out! Wish I had a piece of Ina blueberry cake right now with my morning coffee.
    I am not able to get Yellowstone. Big fan of All Creatures Great and small. Enjoyed the sweet scenes of Tristan and his new lady interest. No one could mistake you for a constant TV watcher with all the things you accomplish! Enjoy your week

    1. I too enjoyed the scenes of Tristan with his new girl:) Feeling really blue for James but he seems to have pulled out of it.That poor family:( It's a bit Hallmarky but in a great way,,and that scenery:) Characters are wonderful!

  2. Ina's recipes pretty much always work but I've never tried this one. I'll give it a check! Your snow views are lovely, especially your shed. It looks like a happy little house. and that All Creatures episode with the horse.... that might be one of my all-time favorites. Love that series! Happy week -- or I guess, closer to the weekend!

  3. Beautiful snowy pictures. The snow looks deep. A winter wonderland. The blurry cake looks delicious. I made a crescent roll pasty yesterday with cream cheese, lemon curd and blueberries. I love Yellowstone, also 1883. 1923 is interesting.

  4. Those snow paths around your home are absolutely perfect. How on earth does your husband do that? I'm a snow slinger. When I go out to shovel, I just want to get it done so I can go inside. I'm a bit particular about other things, but not shoveling. We have a light dusting left from last week's storm, but I think it will disappear today.

    I believe I've made that recipe before--and we loved it. Ina is reliable, that's for sure. If I was 15 again....now that takes a person down memory lane. I used to be able to eat everything, all day long. Not any more, tho. Hubby and I have been trying the intermittent fasting routine and the goal is to finish our last meal of the day around 3:00. Some days are easier than others. One thing I've noticed is that I sleep quite a bit better when I eat early, then stop.

    Hoping you and your loved ones are all well and enjoying these wintry days near a warm fire.

    1. Slow slinger lol Pam that's moi.Jacques uses the snowblower to create the paths and walkways....but shovels decks..When I shovel the front steps and porch I sling but on his piles not beside lol.OOh I thought we were good not eating a thing after 5.45 for me.. 6 ish for J because he has dessert.WE have not eaten a thing after dinner for 100 yrs.. It would be hard to convince him to adjust to 3;)Im never hungry at night.. all seasons..when dinner is done..it's done:)I hope you are all well too and have a nice weekend.. Snow slinger..lol.. :)I need a term for my weeding;)

  5. Must admit I cried buckets over the horses Siegfried and WW1. The most awful thing is that is actually happened. Truly heartbreaking. I loathe cruelty to animals. Thoughtlessness. I was looking for something to watch on Netflix one Japanese and one Nordic film. Both within the first five minutes had cat torture scenes. So totally unnecessary

    1. I loved that storyline too and had tears..He's great in his role..It happens still today..look at all the cats left on their own..dog farms..:(. But even some parents treat their children badly as we can attest by the news.. so I am not surprised at much these days.And let's not forget the war in Ukraine:(:(Which is always at the back of our minds.Senseless cruelty.

  6. Your She Shed looks so pretty with her fluffy white bonnet! Jacques' pathes are truly beautiful. It really makes going outdoors a treat for you, I'm sure. We watch television during the same time. Always after dinner, never before unless it's a major golf tournament or football game on a Sunday afternoon :) I still haven't finished 1883. Wonderful acting and I love Elsa's narration in her Tennessee accent. Just finished All Creature's... The horse episode, so sad and so wonderful. I that wanted that white horse. ♥

    1. Me tooo everything you said:) Yes J will tune in to football in the day for sure and he often tapes (is that still a word?) golf tournaments..Oh and news..There's a feeling I cannot explain on a sunny pristine winter's day outside.I think I'll call it reverence.Same with the beach.But you need to be in the open..not on a busy street etc..it's like walking shore road at the ocean or the beach. itself without crowds...no reverence on streets..you need the expanse..and solitude ?For me.

    2. I get that 100% One with nature and its beauty.

  7. That is a lot of snow!
    Please be careful slinging that snow. Over-enthusiastic snow shoveling got me sciatica and a brief bout in a hospital ūüė≥ I don’t think we have this 1883 yet in France…is it on Netflix?
    I don’t think I want to be 15 again…the last thing on my mind was cakeūüėä Carolg

  9. I had never heard of Koselig, but now I know what it is, thanks to you! You are always teaching me new things. You sure have a lot of snow! We have a bit but only just this past week, it has been bitter cold however. Your cake looks fabulous. I love J's words for it. You cannot go wrong with an Ina recipe! She is just the best! xoxo
