On Sunday morning I saw that the water in the bay was as still & calm as glass. I think that's what it called the 'calm before the storm'. And oh so true after hearing the ice pellets, wind, snow, & just on blustery winter day, a week before the season actually begins.
Later that day....
I had to go view his 'sleigh in the living, I had to ask him again, "Really a full size sleigh? In the livingroom?!"
Boris' Photo Shoot~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
His eyes are scary in this photo. lol
Last week she made me shiver, when I was upstairs she was on the mezzanine banister & was looking at he large chandelier in the greatroom. You could just see her calculating how far of a jump it would be over to that area & my panic at the height of her miscalculating & falling! She is like no cat I have ever owned & she delights me most days & keeps me on my toes the other days! lol
Christmas Rum Balls Mmmmmm
Bill & I were in at the Bulk Barn a few weeks back gathering supplies for the rum balls. The raisins were the main ingredient & needed to soaked in the 5 yr old amber rum, soaked so long that they plumped right up & were then puree into a heavenly smelling mixture.
I've used Namama's recipe & have over the years changed this or that & each batch has been great or maybe it's the rum that's so great! lol
Well this year, the clerk at the Bulk Barn explained how she soaked the cherries in vodka & they were wonderful in her drinks. Then I remembered my S-I-L telling me how so had soaked her cherries in a alcohol before making the run balls. Yes! this year I was going to change those plain cherry filling to alcohol soaked fruit by soaking them in my Absolute vodka in a sealed dish in the freezer, until needed.
Just for him, I made a 1/2 batch nut free!
I've call the plow guy for our area to plow me out in the morning as I've a hair appointment that I want to keep. This time of the year hairdressers are run off their feet with their customers. A sampling of the rum balls should help a bit. lol
This Saturday Bill will arrive & the kids will come on the Eve before Christmas Eve. I'm so excited to have everyone together for Christmas, the first Christmas of many, in New Brunswick.
This storm front is to end by tomorrow afternoon & the next front is warmer with rain, heavy heavy snow after that.
Thank you for visiting this blustery day & wherever your viewing this from, stay warm & safe.
This made me smile ~~~ Happiness is not a station you arrive at, but rather a manner of traveling.
