I know I've been quiet on here but I needed a bit of a break.
A bit because I needed a refresh
and a bit because of needing to attend to some other
Time...it goes swiftly.
Yesterday evening I sat in my chair by the window
and was enjoying watching the sun set
through the trees.
Yes, it was early..about 3pm.
Soon it will be the shortest day of the year.
I've been spending a bit more time in the kitchen.
Below is a pic of the crumb mixture that
I was making for apple crisp.
I love the frothy warm melted butter.
With this I mix up the crumble by hand. It just seems to
come together easier for me for some reason.
I have also started to propagate some more violets.
The main plants have started to die off so I thought
it was just time for something new.
I have to break off the big leaf so that I don't end up
with a whole forest of violets. hehehe
I have two kinds started.
One is a double purple and the other is a purple with a white ruffle.
I made some more apple hand pies.
They are a delicious snack and the addition
of chunky sugar on top is perfect.
In the picture at the top of the blog you can see
the reflection of my geranium in the tea.
I love that my geraniums bloom in the winter.
Also...I like to have a cup of tea while I work in the kitchen.
Do any of you like to do that?
Do you find that you have a special kind of tea for when you're
working from when you just sit and rest for a bit?
I like black tea with peppermint for when I'm working
and herbal mix tea for relaxing.
Praying you have a blessed day!
Love and Prayers,
