one of the reasons I am such a Fall & Winter loving girl
is my love of home comforts ...
anything home related ...
so this past week
while I watched the weather change from snow, to rain
and listened to heavy, heavy winds
I spent time
baking banana nut loaf ...
making some gnudi for our dinner
with fresh tomato sauce
found an old jar in the storage cupboard that was perfect for holding
put some new fresh flowers on the kitchen table
enjoyed the scene outside my kitchen window
listened to the wonderful, soulful music of Ron Sexsmith - one of my favourite musicians
I remember listening to the radio as I drove home one day and hearing a song "This is how I know"
I had to wait to find out who the artist was and once I heard the name, went out and purchased the C.D. Since then, I've been a fan & had the great joy of seeing Ron Sexsmith play live (AMAZING)!!
I have this wonderful C.D. (Forever Endeavour) playing at the moment... my favourite song(s) being Life after a Broken Heart and Nowhere Is
Jay bird doesn't stop by our garden very often
but always makes his presence known.
He wasn't very happy with the squirrels who were eating the almonds I put out :-)
so I had to make sure he got a few!
He thanked me by becoming just the inspiration needed & the perfect fill in for a bare spot I had on a painting I was working on ♥
some pastel sketches ...
while I watched the Olympics
~have a wonderful weekend~
