Another Friday Has Come and Gone

 Hi friends and fellow bloggers,


I hope you are all doing well and keeping happily occupied as we move on toward Christmas.

I'm keeping busy but not feverishly so. This year I have been thankful for being made to slow down and get a lot of 'old tasks' done. I have enough to keep all my waking hours occupied.

It was raining very, very heavily earlier in the day.  When it stopped I took a few photos to share.

First up is this little beauty.




On Thursday night I made ham and bean soup with the leftover ham I roasted on Sunday or Monday. I made Métis style bannock bread to go with it. It was not the best bannock I've made but it was tasty nonetheless.  If you would be interested in making it, there is a recipe or two on line.

The box from Amazon was delivered on Tuesday and contains the shelves I have yet to put together. I haven't done it yet because I've been painting one of the walls in my entry way and touching up some of the bedroom doors and bathroom areas. I have more to do along those lines. The main priority is to get the entry way properly painted and move a small armoire from the living room to the wall area so I can rearrange the seating in the living room.

Well I better go and eat my dinner while it is fresh. Tonight I've made steamed rice, salmon and a few cut up veggies like cucumbers and tomatoes sprinkled with lemon juice.


One last look at the sky before I go.  I zoomed in on the mountains. You can see all the fresh snow.

Enjoy your Friday. 

Linking up with Skywatch Friday.

My favourite is the last photo of the mountain with the fresh snow. The snow is glittering in the sunlight.

When I saw your post I realized I hadn't had a proper lunch and now it's almost three -- soon time for dinner! Sounds like you are "in control" this season -- just the way to be!

Thanks for reminding me of Skywatch Friday as I'm determined to become more active on blogger again. Visiting old friends like you has been a very good thing.

Love those snow covered mountains! So pretty. And your supper looks amazing! Sounds like you have been busy with painting, etc. Good for you! I hope you have some help when you move that armoire, however! Oh, that ham and bean soup looks wonderful. I may have to do that after Christmas when we have ham. Have a wonderful week!!
