What I Did Today........




 After the grocery shopping...

And a trip to the mall...

With my boyfriend....

I decided to sit at the kitchen table...

Admiring my African Violet...

I get sooo much sun here...

The plants love it ♥

The next 2 photos...

Tell a story in themselves....

Can you see him???

Forever lurking...

In every darn picture...

Hogging the limelight...

AGAIN!!!!

Darn you RED!

Okay....

Scroll down...

And...

I will fill you in...

On...

What I did today.....




 I decided to make a few Thank You cards for my kids....

They gave my boyfriend and I such thoughtful lovely gifts...

And I just wanted to thank them.....again♥







I decided to make a jug..

Of...

Cucumber water....

And...

Vow...

To drink a jug a day...

And I did...

Oh...excuse me...

I'll be right back....

Pee break♥  tee hee hee!

I also got a bunch of Leeks...

To make potato and leek soup....

Will be on the stove tomorrow.....   









I decided these plum tomatoes...

Needed...

To go...

On the table...

In the sunshine....

It is a miracle!!!

Red is not in this pic!!!

I must warn you...

The next few photos...

May be difficult to view...

I am entirely ashamed...

But...

Oh dear....

Lovely♥












It all started so innocently....

A nice cup of tea...

Something alongside...

It is all my son's fault...

I made another of those delicious...

Apple...

Blueberry...

Blackberry...

Raspberry...

Strawberry pies...

On Sunday...as...

He was expected...

But...due to...the...

Nasty weather...

Did not make it... 

So....now...his father...

And I...are forced to...

Eat this hideous concoction....and use the rest of the horrible Ice Cream from Christmas...

Damn you!!!!    tee hee hee.....I break myself up...sometimes...but...not very often...but this is definitely...

                              one time...hilarious.....I WANT MORE PIE!!!!...okay...settle down Dumbo!!!






So......this is what I did today...

How about you????

Was it as excellent as my day????

Are you still freezing out there????

Very.........very.......very cold here....did I say very???

                                                      *********

On the menu this Tasty Tuesday....

              Meatloaf....roasted potatoes.....zucchini and parmesan cheese...

                    Started with a loaded Spinach salad....and a few glasses of cucumber water♥


Enjoy your evening.....

                                    Cheers!  :o)

  1. I need to try your cucumber water! :)

    I would have taken on that nasty job of finishing off the pie and icecream, too! I mean, I can't be good if there are goodies in the house! haha.

    The boys are supposed to go back to school tomorrow so I'll run off to the grocery tomorrow! The frig is looking a little bare! Soup sounds good...I think I'll get the fixings for a few kinds. Easy dinners and this is the perfect weather! Yum!

    that RED!!! hahaha.....how funny!

  2. We have been hearing on the news about how awful the weather and conditions are over with you, so I am amazed that you got out of the house at all. You Canadians must be made of hardy stuff!! Can't believe that you have been eating ice cream though. Brrrrrrr, far too cold! Hope you are enjoying the company of red! xx

    2. Normally I spend ages chasing tell squirrels (grey, not red) off the bird feeders in the winter, but no sight of them this year, they must have moved house! xx

  5. It is so cold and so windy here that I'm going to go nuts I think. I can't stand the wind howling at the house. And I didn't go out once today, not even to get the mail and newspaper at the end of the icy driveway. What kind of ice cream is that? It looks quite yummy. So does the pie. Got the tree down and room back to rights. Feels bare but good. Stay warm!!

    1. I think you need a nice warm piece of pie....with a big scoop of Praline Butterscotch ice cream!
      That will fix you right up!!
      You'll get used to the tree being gone....go buy yourself a new houseplant!

  8. Cucumber water? Please tell us more. I laughed from pee break' on. I'm like you and could never refuse a berry pie with ice cream (please!). It is so cold here that I don't even see any squirrels out and about. The birds are not coming to the feeders, either. It's just nasty. I WANT SPRING! Stay warm Linda. Deb

    1. Pretty simple......water and sliced cucumber!
      No secrets....
      Thanks for laughing....I do TRY to be humorous!
      Lots of birds here today...
      And...of course...RED!
      Three cheers for Spring!

  9. Yummy cucumber water! Such a great idea to make a big jug and then commit to drinking it through the day! The cake and ice cream look pretty good, as well. Bet that potatoe and leek soup will be divine. Imagine the nerve of Red to hog any photo he can!

  10. I am getting used to his hogging!
    Will make the soup this am.....

  11. at least you can thank the weather for one thing ... eating Yummy pie and ice cream ... too bad your son couldn't get there to enjoy it
    It isn't as cold today, well actually it isn't as windy ... sun is shining ... looking forward to the weekend when the temperatures are supposed to rise above 0 Celsius ... hoping to say goodbye icy driveway
    I made vegetable soup at the beginning of the week, think it will be leek and potato next week ... love my soups.
    Hope today is as good as yesterday for you.
