Good Monday Morning, Sunshine!
We are coming off from another snowy weekend in Philadelphia. The weather and Covid have encouraged us to stay mostly indoors this past week. We did take daily walks with the 2 dogs and our daughter, but other than that, it’s been a slow week of knitting, reading, and movie watching.
In all honesty, I watched very few memorable movies except for The Dig on Netflix. Both Terry and I would highly recommend it.
And it has been blissful! This was an impromptu ‘vacation’ and just getting away from our daily chores seems to be just what we needed! That being said, we hit the road back home early tomorrow morning and it is always good to be home. And, not for nothing, this one-week’ snow experience’ has reminded me why we live in the South. 😉 It’s beautiful and all, but I guess I am just a little lazy in that I am looking forward to being able to take the dogs out without having to put on snow boots, a coat, gloves, and a hat!
Helpful Tip: I think we can all agree that our kitchen thermometers are only useful if they are accurate. An easy way to test your kitchen thermometer is to fill a glass with ice and cold water and place the probe of the thermometer in the glass without touching the sides or bottom of the glass for 30 seconds. If your thermometer reads 32°, then it is accurate!
For my knitting and crochet friends, if you are looking for a great way to use up your stash and do good at the same time, check out the Warm Up America Foundation. They are always looking for 7″ by 9″ panels that can be joined to make blankets and throws for our fellow citizens in need. Thanks to Elizabeth for bringing this to my attention so that I could share it with you. ❤

Lynn, I also have 2 golden retrievers – 4yr old Tucker & 6 months old Sammy. I wanted to let you know how much they LOVE your 3 ingredient dog treats. I am making them SO often that instead of using cookie cutters I roll the dough out on a Silpat and cut it into small squares with a pizza cutter. I don’t even separate it. They come apart after they have cooled down. My husband – working from home, keeps a container on his desk for visits from the boys… Thanks for a great healthy and easy recipe.
And coincidentally, they make great Valen-dog treats.
Looking for a great ‘winter’ salad? This Butternut Squash and Dried Fig Salad is hearty and nourishing.
Sure, it is still winter, but it isn’t too early to start thinking of spring. These easy-to-make moss balls are very easy to make and will spring-up anywhere you place them.
Well, my lovelies, I wish you day of grace and joy.
