we woke up this morning to our first snow! it was so beautiful coming down. it only accumulated about an inch, but it’s the watching it snow that i love the most. however pretty it was, we are just not ready for it yet. i love the fall, and feel like we are being cheated out of our “Halloween” season by the cold and snow. there’s a certain order it’s all supposed to happen in and there seems to have been a kink in those plans. bwahaha humbug..
i have been feeling melancholy for the past few days. i miss having more family around and cooking for them, having evenings together and such. long gone are the days when company was abundant and time together was filled with the kiddos all playing together whilst the adults did crafting, or played cards. last night we had my one sister who lives here, come over with her MIL who lives with them, for cards. i made homemade tomato soup and bruschetta, it was delightful, yummy, and so satisfying. tomorrow [Sunday] my oldest son and his friend are coming over for roasted chicken dinner. i LERVE to cook for people and have company over. if you peeps lived closer, we’d be sharin the bloggy love over good food…
happy thanksgiving to all my Canadian friends and family. ours will be coming up soon, too.
