A change in the weather...

Today the sun is SHINING! The temperature got up to 40 degrees. It was wonderful! On my lunch break while at work, I decided no way was I staying indoors on a day like today. So I took a chair from the break room and parked it out on the little cement slab that is just out the back door toward Frenchcreek. I took my travel knitting with me and spent 45 minutes enjoying the sunshine on my head, birds singing, the sound of the creek flowing and knitted. It was very peaceful and relaxing. I even took my coat OFF!

I didn't take the pups with me today as it was originally supposed to rain and they would have more fun at home with my oldest son who had the day off work. But I did think of them. I called home and had Kerry leave them out on the front porch (which is gated) so they could watch the birds and enjoy some sun and fresh air since it was warmer.

Hopefully tomorrow it will be nice and I will take them to the bike trail for a walk at lunch time. More of the snow should be melted if it keeps this up.

Anyway the sunshine did me good because usually I am dragging after work and really don't even feel like cooking (I do, just don't feel like it!). However this evening I did and this is what I made...

Banana Bread, Stew and Biscuit's

...nope not diet food, just good home cookin'!


  1. Proud of you, girl! I really need to bake bread... a week ago. I started to get out the ingredients for my Oatmeal Batter Bread and just didn't have the energy. So we have 2 whole-wheat hamburger buns left til Saturday. That will do us.
    ...besides other food of course! (smile)

  2. Banana bread is a favourite of mine and that one looks fab! I think our biscuits and your biscuits are slightly different things....what's in yours?

  3. Hi Tina
    Sounds like the sun is shining and all is well in your world!
    We like banana bread - it all looked very nice and kinda comforting. Hope you get your walk today with Sampson and Honey Dew - good they can go to work with you! Our mum changed from full time to part time when we came but we would prefer her to be home all of the time!!
    love and kisses
