Last Weeks Cottage Drive......


Whenever we pass this place...

We are always looking for the Horses...

We got lucky...they were putting them thru their paces...

And these Canada Geese  are looking for water!!

The pond just near them, was still frozen!!
 

It was a brighter day last visit...

A bit less snow...we were able to jump down to the beach...

It has melted to a layer of sand...not very attractive!!

Hope that has melted more for this weeks visit...

 
My boyfriend took a pic of me on top of all the ice at the shore...

Hope this has gone too!!

But...

Probably not...the weather has cooled down again...although much warmer down in Niagara..


I found the first piece of Beach Glass for 2015!!

Quite a large one too.... 

Added it to this pitcher...we have plenty more!!

Perhaps I should do something will all of it...
 


From inside...you can see most of the snow is on the West side of the property...

This will take a long time to melt...unless we get a heatwave!!

YAY!!  Let's hear it for a heat wave!!!   heat wave...heat wave...heat wave...

I can't hear you!!
 






Here's me...

Inside...

40*f...

brrrrr...

Can't really put the furnace on yet...

Hopefully in a few weeks...

When my boyfriend can get the water on...

Then we will be in business!!













This is coming down the Niagara Escarpment into Beamsville...

This is Lake Ontario...

On our way home...

One of our favorite thrift shops is there...and...of course...

I needed to stop in!!










Hope you are all having a great day...

We have Miss V today...she is napping...what a great little sleeper she is ♥️

Tonight is Fish night!!!

Light the smelly candles..open up the windows...HAHAHA!

My favorite choice the last few months has been Cod...

SO darn tender, moist and flaky...especially after bathing in buttermilk...

{Just had to say that!!!!}

And rolled in Panko crumbs...

Rice and sauteed mushrooms and peppers on the side...

I think a Ceasar Salad to start...with fresh grape tomatoes....

And thinly sliced red onion...yummy!!

Have a great day!!

What's going on at your place??

                                Cheers!  :o)

  3. Nice photos, Linda. I love your cottage and I like that you have lots of mirrors. It makes the rooms feel larger. Dinner sounds delish...my kind of meal. We are just doing more decorating of the mouse-house. And...hanging more bird houses. Have a great evening. Hugs

    1. Yes...the mirrors do make things seem larger...
      Most of them have been thrifty buys...never pass up a mirror!
      Hope you get some renters in your houses!

  4. Love all these, but I am entranced with the first photo - looks like a painting. Beautiful. Wish I could paint! Great pics of you, too. Today I am running a few errands and looking out at a very grey sky. Kinda grim but I hope the sun will shine soon! Enjoy your Thursday.

    1. Oh gosh...me too Suzanne...watercolors!!
      I am so envious of people who can paint...I keep threatening to try...but, too chicken!!
      Grey here as well...except for the glow that emanates from Miss V♥️

    2. One of these days I am going to take a painting course. I don't think I have that particular talent, but I'd like to try.

  7. I love that pic of you.
    I am always overjoyed when someone gets a pic of me I don't want to tear up.
    So not photogenic.I am.
    And when a fiend send you a very awful low light pic? And it's from a phone? And she's not a photographer?And doesn't edit?
    Not a true friend:)
    I only send good pics to people..why depress anyone..
    That is a cute cute pic!

    I collect sea glass for my Ontario friend on the FL beach and give it to her..so pretty!
    It's raining..and we did a Costco run~
    I had my scarf..on too..and not wool today!

    1. Oh Monique...you are gorgeous! I cant imagine a bad photo of you...
      I take selfies, then I can decide what appears here...hahaha! didn't even put my soft Doris Day lighting on this one!
      Are you talking about the one in the mirror???
      I have never seen any beach glass where we stay...you must be further south...when do you go???
      We did Costco yesterday...hence the rotiserrie chicken yesterday!!
      Don't you just love scarves???
      You can never have too many...in lots of patterns...
      Nothing like a warm neck.....

  12. I don't know where your horse was going through the paces, but many years ago My Darling's nanny used to work at the race track in Fort Erie. I've never been to the races but one day we drove past the barns. It looked like an interesting place.

    Beach glass already? I should go check out my beach, except it's probably still frozen... maybe.
