Did I Mention That It Was Icy???













Past Sunday at the cottage...

BRRRR!!

And the wind was howling!!!

The waves must have been huge...and then they froze...on everything!

By the time I went inside...the sky almost looked like it was clearing a wee bit...

And the point...from the car...looked gorgeous!!

 



             Hope you are all having a great day...

                    Sun is shining...and the winds are calm...

                         It is Wednesday...so you know what that means...
 
                                                YUP!!

                    Miss V is napping...after a hearty lunch of peanut butter sandwich...

                           1/2 a Pear...berries and yugurt...2 glasses of milk!!!

                         I have been busy in the kitchen...

                                  Vegetarian Spaghetti Sauce bubbling...

            Lemon, Banana, Blueberry,Blackberry loaves...2...cooling on the counter...

     Miss V here for a sleepover too...her Mom is ill again...giving her a chance to recuperate♥️

                              Plus...loads of Miss V time for boyfriend and I...

                So.....

                    What are you all up to today??

                      Still cold where you are???

                          What aromas are coming from your kitchen???

           Enjoy the sunshine...i have also been snapping a few pics thru the kitchen window...

                                       Love days like this!!
 
                                        Cheers!  :o)

  3. Well, I must admit that I love how you describe your menus, maybe even more than reading about the icy scenery! And regards for you from Gigi, who asked me about you this morning. I said that you're headed south soon. Nice that you have Miss V. today. Dinner here is turkey burgers, roasted beets and mashed turnips. Have fun and enjoy...

    1. Well...no Lake in my backyard here at home...but I am sure anybody living along one of the Great Lakes would have the same view!
      SO...does Hubby like my blog?? hahaha!

      Delete
    2. I meant the cold!! Hee hee! I don't think that hubby has seen it before, he came to see what I was doing and saw your frosty freezy pictures, so I told him where they were! He doesn't really know much about my bloggy pals! xx

    I have been doing my year end accounts with papers scattered all over the place and number crunching going on . . .
    Always a busy time each year . . . but a little behind this year.
    What aromas are coming from my kitchen? ~ none so far but you have reminded me that I am hungry.

  9. Well I was feeling warm. Actually, seeing all of this makes me want to stop whining about how lousy it is here. Uh-nah.
    Photo # 12 with tree and blue butterfly... so refreshing among all of that ice - poor you!

    I'll be over for spaghetti later.(smile)

  10. That looks really cold Linda - sorry to learn that your daughter is unwell, but I know you will enjoy your time with Miss V. I have a pot of tomato and red pepper soup bubbling away, and a plum crumble to eat with custard and cream.

  11. It looked so cold at the cottage but fantastic photo opportunities. Chicken lasagna for dinner tonight ... the cheating kind from M&M. Medical appointments today so not totally exciting. It was a lovely sunny day with little wind,which was a good thing because it was o-o-o-o cold when we went out this morning.

  12. It was terribly cold this morning, but the sun was bright and the wind was calm. I took my camera out to the bus stop again. After my friend Emma got on the bus, I went across the street to find something to shoot, but my fingers soon started to freeze so I didn't stay out long.
    I found a not on my computer that said, "I want my momma." so Hannah and I took a trip to visit the new momma to be who was feeling sickish. We took some lemon ginger tea and a bag of oyster crackers, and helped fold several loads of laundry.
    That's productive, right?

    1. Absolutely! Go easy on yourself Martha....you are very involved in so many things!

    2. It was really nice to be able to sit around the table in Beth's dining room, share some conversation, and watch her face turn from wincing at nausea to relaxed after drinking a bit of lemon ginger tea. We brought along some apples and cream cheese dip which helped in keeping Jakie calm after our arrival. He didn't get crazy like he usually does when we first show up. It was a good afternoon and we were back hoe before the school bus returned with Emily (not to be confused with Emma...)

  13. I've been chilled all day and shivering then I open this post and see these frigid (although beautiful) photos at the cottage! I'm thankful for my warm house on these cold nights and not having to leave it if I don't want to. :) Hubs is still in Winterpeg so it's a bit too boring and quiet here. Enjoy your evening, Linda.

  14. Great photos, Linda. My favorite is #8.We have the same weather but I think we are a bit colder here. Sounds like this weekend it will warm up quite a bit. Relief! Dinner sounds scrumptious and that loaf...mmmm. We were at the property this afternoon and home just in time to make open-faced tuna melts. Add a salad. Easy. I got my fill of birdies today. Do you ever see the Red Poll around your area? They are so cute but very shy. Glad you had time with Miss V. Deb

  15. Those photos are amazing! Brr! Love the way the lake freezes though...very cool patterns.

    We didn't have sun today...just grey with a few flakes falling. I cleaned today....much accomplished, so that felt good. The Mister had a dinner out so I didn't have to cook...love that little break sometimes!

  16. Beautiful, b-r-r-r-r photos. Love the bumps and curves and swirls of the ice. Looks like someone aimed a wand at the waves and said, "Freeze!" Was at the 2015/2016 COC (Canadian Opera Company) Season Launch tonight so no smells emanating from the kitchen. But afterwards I went for a delicious Stout Cheddar Burger and Cosy Apple Cobbler with Ice Cream at the Mill Street Pub in the Distillery. Yum.

  17. Oh, Linda, even when the weather looks cruel, the beauty of the ice and snow gets me in every time. I really love the effect of the frozen icicles - so like sculpture. Steamed vegetables and fish for me tonight - trying to rid myself of the Christmas excesses!

  22. I do love such gloomy winter skies carrying snow :) I love to walk out when it's like that. Sadly, I don't have any nature like you do close to the home. We've had snow only two or three days this winter. and it's almost like spring currently.
