My Days are Full

Hope everyone of you are doing well.  I appreciate your stopping by.  I think Spring has sprung here in my hometown; or at least I hope so...Next week will seem like it regardless of the weather as our Lambs will be arriving...THAT is the sure sign of Spring...Agreed????

I have been really busy for the last few days and will be for another two or three with the canning that was started a few days ago.  I didn't realize there was so much food in the deep freezes that was shouting out "Please cook and can me...I will have frost burn in no time"....:)

This is the Cherry and Bakeapple (Cloudberry) Jams that I made and was very successful with it...Tastes Yummy...This is the first time I have made Cherry jam; actually it was berries intended to be used to make Wine but of course, it didn't make it to its intended use, but that is ok.

Then there were Blackberries and Raspberries that were picked by our very own hands....those had to go, too.

Then today was busier than the rest as we (My DH and & ) made this beautiful "Sweet and Sour Beef"...It is a delicious recipe.  If any of you would like it, I will gladly pass it on...It is made using large amounts of beef, etc., as you can see.

The one thing about all of this wonderful food is that there is always plenty to share with friends and family...I will try some day to get a photo of our storage cupboards..:)
Tomorrow it is  Boiled Beans and then  Ground Beef... Sorry for the long post...enjoy your weekend...Happy St. Paddy's Day to those of you who celebrate.!!!!!

Busy Day

Well, Pardon the Pun, but today has been a very fruitful one for us.  We dug down deep into one of our  freezers and came up with a bunch of fruit to make into jam...This is the time of year when we like to clean out some of the food that we have and can/bottle some of it....Today is a beginning and I hope we can continue until the rest if finished. 

This is a photo of what we did today...We began really early in the morning and took us up to the afternoon...Very enjoyable day, to say the least.  This Jam is made up of what we call Bankberries (Cranberries) that were picked by us, Rhubarb that we grow and applesauce.  Now that makes a very nice jam.

Tomorrow, hopefully, it will be Bakeapple (Cloudberry) Jam Plus Cherry, too.  Will keep you posted on our success...

Have a Wonderful Day!!!!

My Donation

Hi Everyone,

Well, the sun has been shining TWO days in a row...Wow, aren't we lucky!!!

I was pleased this morning to have been able to make a Special Donation to Our Local Hospital.  I did this in memory of my Mother-in-Law who spent time there and even though was 90 years of age,  was quite heavily involved in raising money for different items in the Recreational Area. Believe it or not, she was Secretary in this dept...:)

Of course it was the "Ever Famous....Women Spreading Fish to Dry"...I know, I know, you are tired of looking at it but here it is again...Hopefully a  large amount of tickets will be sold so they can raise a fair amount of  money to purchase some the things they need.

Take care, All....

Greetings from Windy Lord's Cove.  The gales of wind we have had recently is second to none.  :)  Yesterday was a Snowy, Freezing Rain, Rain, Windy Day.  Travelling didn't impress me at all, but thankfully, I made it home in one piece..I think it is time for Spring to show her Mild Side now.

As many of you may have noticed, I posted the date of my Give Away Draw being, Tuesday, Feb. 18th; however, today,Monday, is the 18th and I have decided to go ahead with it.

Thanks to all of you who participated...Including my regular followers, I came up with a total of 92 people.  I used the ever popular "Random.Org." to help with the number. 

"The Middle Sister.....Gayle"

Congratulations, Gayle, please send me your mailing address so that I can get this in the Post for you.

Have a wonderful day, Everyone.

Give Away Postponed

Hello All,

I have decided to extend the date of my Lighthouse Give Away until Tuesday, February 18th because I posted it on my Facebook Page and people thought they could enter from there; so I think it is only fair to give everyone a chance to win.

I am a little disappointed that I have not accumulated many names here on my blog for it. :(

My Give Away

Hello Everyone,  It took me a while to get back to you but appointments, etc., today took away from my free time.

Ok, here it is:  I assume Everyone likes Lighthouses and  I KNOW it doesn't seem like much but there will be a little extra into the package of the person who wins it. 
This Lighthouse, which measures 5 1/2 in. in lenght  is hooked on Linen, using 100% Wool Yarn that was spun from the fleeces of our locally grown sheep that graze along the seashore.  I have made it into a Magnet; if a Hanger would be preferred by the winner, that can be arranged as a substitute. 

Now, let me see a comment from each of you who would like to win this or join me on my page...I know I'm not a great blogger but work prevents me from doing so at times. 

This will run until February 16th... Have Fun and don't forget....I will Post  this little prize ANYWHERE in the World....
Also, invite your friends to join as well....

Give Away

Good Snowy Day from Lord's Cove again today....I don't mind it at all...I can hook away and not worry about feeling guilty because I am not outside doing something like walking, for instance...Shame on Me....!!

I am preparing to have  my very First "Give Away" here on my Blog...To those of you who comment on  or Join my page, your name will be entered for the draw.  It will go for a week from the time I post the Prize...Not sure what it will be yet....just give me a day or so until the one on my Facebook Page is straightened away, which will be some time  later today/tonight...I am torturing people today by not giving a specific time...:)

I will be looking forward to this and getting excited as I think about it.

This is in Fairness to those of you who don't "DO" Facebook...:)

Thanks, All and Have a Wonderful, Safe Day.
