Been a bit housebound recently
decided to take some
random photos


woodpile....a beautiful thing
thank you "e".....

 ready for the colder temps...

one of my many collections...

 did have more stacked boxes, 
but one of my sons
seems to ask for one(or two)
whenever he get's a chance...

 this is only a small portion 
of my enamelware........

 yes, the pumpkins are still out...
can't find the snowmen (collection)
in the shed.

I've collected dishes 
since I was a teenager.
Even gave some to my daughter
when she got married.
See the stacked picnic baskets?
Another collection.

first snow of the winter

but treacherous
the day was gloomy as the snow fell
a thick covering of ice 
under all the beautiful snow I stayed in and cooked
warming the house and filling the bellies
found this recipe on Pinterest 
I converted it to a bread machine recipe
to knead the dough and
the rolls turned out beautiful
also made a pumpkin cheesecake

today is bright and sunny but 
the temps are in the teens
so along with the sun shining in the windows
and this
we should stay warm and toasty.

Today I must sew!!
