We are under a Winter Storm Warning here in the foothills of the Rockies, the National Weather Service has predicted quite a bit of snow for our area. Imagine our delight to be hearing the rumble of thunder as we watch it snow! We have had this happen before of course, but it is none the less enjoyable. It is a very wet, heavy storm and we are keeping an eye on our trees, especially our fruit trees.
Dearest, Darling Boy and I, just finished a rather late lunch of homemade Macaroni & Cheese with sliced Ham. We have enjoyed our Easter Ham and the last bit has been sliced and divided into bags for the freezer. The ham-hock is waiting its turn to be added to a tasty pot of Ham and Beans, just as soon as my beans have finished soaking. (If we loose power from the storm it is best to have something that can simmer atop of one of our woodburning stoves...hence, a lovely pot of soup!)
Our youngest Darling Boy is staying on campus this weekend as he has quite a bit of work to do as the end of the term is near. If the storm is as heavy as predicted then it is wiser to have him stay where he is, instead of having to drive on slick, icy roads.
We are praying that our Darling Girl continues to make a speedy recovery from her bout with back to back illnesses. She stayed with us until yesterday, letting me take extra measures of care in aiding her recuperation. I helped her settle back in at her little place, and she was going to try and work at least a little while today. If she comes to mind would you say a little prayer for her? Thank you.
I have a wee bit of mending to do, laundry to stash away into drawers and the last bit of scrubbing of the upstairs bathroom, then I am going to gather up my embroidery and work on my tea towels next to the fire....
I dearly hope you have a pleasant afternoon and evening and I will chat with you very soon.
P.S. The pictures above are of a few of my favorite blue & white dishes....simple, but lovely.
