Last Monday…

 …began with this view…

It was definitely a wintry week!  Perfect for some reading…

…this book, the current choice for my book club that meets via Twitter.

Also, it was a good time for a cozy kitchen supper…

 …a favorite of years past, Creamed Chicken in Cornbread Ring, along with roasted sweet potatoes.

It has been a great time to explore this book that was a Christmas gift…

True comfort food…meatloaf (inspired by recipe from above book), macaroni and cheese, and steamed broccoli!

A special treat was a Zoom interview with Susan Branch, sponsored by Cary Library in Massachusetts.

How are things where you are?  I wish you happy, healthy days!

Take care, be safe, and stay well!

Winter is here...


This was our view from our front door on Monday morning.  It didn’t linger very long, and it had all disappeared by the time the next storm arrived on Thursday.

This was the view from our front door on Thursday evening.  The lights from across the street looked really pretty in the snow.  

This wreath purchased at my UMW Craft Fair in October has been appropriate for December and on into the beginning of this new year.

We had a simple assortment of snacks for celebrating the New Year.  Ham and Swiss cheese pinwheels with horseradish mustard and meatballs for dipping in marinara are always popular choices!

Now the stockings are stored away for their appearance later this year.

There is this “Christmas leftover.”  Do you like eggnog?  We do, actually, and while I usually drink my coffee black, I have discovered that a touch of eggnog is quite tasty!

I know many areas have snow and ice.  Wherever you are, stay safe, cozy, and warm!
