This is a restorative time to sit in peace and ponder...
The ticking of the clock, the beating of my heart, a few cars passing by...
children's excited voices a they skip home from school are the usual sounds.
I find quiet times are very important to my well being.
One yellow lone Daisy sits in a vase in our Humble Bungalow bathroom.
One bloom spreads as much cheer as an entire bouquet.
(and it's cheaper!)
The frosty mornings have seen me bundle up in layers.
Warmth is essential to my comfort.
The windscreen on our Volvo has a thick crust of ice...
the automatic heat defrosting fan takes about 5 minutes
so I usually speed up the process by using the scraper.
Autumn shadows grow long...
the last summer geranium is blooming.
Red Green and Silver
my favourite colours to use in Christmas Bouquets.
I must get something organized for our front porch soon and buy a wreath for the front door.
I've discovered some lovely French products...
wee glass jars of yogurt
Bonne Maman Dulce de Leche Caramel sauce.
I reuse jars...do you?
the Bonne Maman jars are sturdy
used for everything
from homemade vinaigrette to storing small bits and bobs.

Last week I cooked a small prime rib of beef for the two of us.
The ultimate comfort food on a cold day.
Mr. HB uses horseradish with his roast and I love Coleman's Hot mustard.
There is room enough in our home for both our tastes.
I volunteered to work at the Craft Fair last weekend
it was a busy morning selling jams, home baking and the crafts.
These sold out in the first hour!
I had to buy one even though I cannot even think of who I could give it to...
Just so creative and kitschy.
Beautiful bright sunshine
twinkling on the ocean at McNeil Bay.
Trial Island Light House is in the distance.
We are so fortunate to live here...
I think this seal was "flirting" with me!
I posted this lovely David Austin Rose on my Instagram page this morning.
I was surprised to see it blooming in our garden as the weather is freezing outside.
Thank you for stopping by...I hope that you are enjoying your week.
