1st snow..


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.

I would love to share in your good culinary skills too!!!!!
Once all the kids move away (if they do) You will have to pick up some old folks that don't have family around and start feeding them. That will make you feel better. Ya kNow??

Aw...I'm SO jealous of your snowfall! It was supposed to snow here today, but no such luck. :(

I promise, the next time I'm in your neck of the woods, you can cook me a feast!

I am so not ready for snow. It's far too early.

I love cooking for people also, there is something so satisfying about it.

Funny how the modern times make for smaller and more isolated families... I too remember so many gatherings full of food and people, and now? Nada.

Sigh. Wish you were my family!

How can we have gotten 4.5 inches and you only got 1 inch? That is so not fair!

I looked outside and growled. I truly did. And I can't believe that my favorite month is acting like late November instead of mid October. I want SWEATER weather not parka weather. Our electric blanket has been on HIGH for many nights. This is frustrating.
