Scenes From My Week

Very little has been achieved this week in our little cottage, unless you count the beautiful skies and scenes from our cottage windows.  I can stand for many a happy hour exclaiming over the beauty.







Wrap up warm, buckle up and I will take you on a little jaunt  and you can see for yourselves the scenes from my week.  The beauty that I am blessed to see on a daily basis, each day a changing scene as we go through the seasons.







A sprinkling of snow making the ordinary into a spectacular Winter Wonderland.  The dramatic skies and cloud formations adding to its natural beauty.







Come on in and I will put the soup on to warm, today we have parsnip and ginger with cheese and onion bread fresh out of the bread making machine.  The stove is lit so take a seat and warm up while I get it ready.

To close Mickey says hello, here he is having a romp in the snow laden garden.




Thank you all for your lovely, uplifting comments they are all greatly appreciated,

See you soon.

  1. Oh doesn't it just look wonderful. So different to our outlook at the moment which is mud, mud and more mud....even though it is snowing.
    That soup sounds amazing.
    Hugs-x-

  2. Beautiful scenery but I think you'd need a bobble hat if you went out in it. Micky looks as though he was enjoying it. Thank you for the recipe of your creamy chicken and leek pie, we're having that Monday instead of cold chicken and SW chips! Can't wait, but no cream I am back on the SW plan.

  5. Our animals are just like kids, aren't they? "Mama, can I go out and play in the snow"?

    Even my fat lazy black cat Pepper found a way to slip between my legs and out onto the patio this week. He didn't stay long, but seeing it from the window is just not the same as experiencing it firsthand.

    While I, on the other hand, did not leave the house for six days except for one trip to the mailbox.

    Bitter cold for five days and then yesterday it was 53F and people were out in short-sleeved shirts when I went to the market.

  7. It does look beautiful, lovely photos thanks for sharing your week. We rarely get much snow and it's very restricting when you do. We take so much for granted such as being able to continue life at ease. You've made me hungry for your soup. Mickey you look adorable, Cathy x

  10. Those clouds are fabulous! So dramatic and ever changing. Of course I love the snowman. I adore snowmen. Mickey looks like he's having a wonderful time too. I think island life suits you all just fine doesn't it? Thank you for the invitation for soup and bread. I sure wish I could just pop on by for a bowl full.
    Blessings always,
    Betsy

  13. My goodness, your beautiful scenery certainly warms the heart. The clouds are magnificent over the ocean. What a big snowman with such a little snow! Thank you for the soup and for the lovely views. Have a happy weekend. ♥

  14. Oh my, your pictures are oh-so-wonderful!! I debate with myself about which I enjoyed more; the ones taken from your windows or the ones taken along the way to water's edge. The ocean is frighteningly beautiful. Could I learn to live there, I wonder... Thank you for inviting us in for hot soup; just perfect for a blustery day, for sure!

    Hugs to you!

  16. You live in the middle of such rugged beauty. No wonder you like to stand at the window and take it in.

  17. Such wonderful scenery! It's amazing to watch a place change through the seasons. I admit that, for years, I didn't pay much attention and took it all for granted, but when you actually take time to pay attention it's amazing how the scenery changes with the seasons. However much I dislike winter I can say that it is absolutely beautiful. Thanks for taking us on a photo journey!

  29. hmmmm, I can almost smell that soup and fresh bread. You do have such a lovely view. I noticed some of the houses have two fireplace chimneys. Is it common to have an extra fireplace in a house in your area?

  32. That's very pretty, don't know if I would enjoy all the cold with that snow. Very much a summer girl I am, though the last few days have been very hot in New Zealand, and I was moaning about the heat too.

  33. Loving all your snowy photos and the beautiful scenes even though it is cold. We don't get to see these scenes here. I too would love a bowl of warm soup now!

  34. Wow, that's a big snowman. I'm not a fan of snow unless I don't have to go out in it but it does look so pretty. It looks like Mickey's happy to play in it but Archie's like me, he doesn't like going out in it either.

  35. Thanks for the lovely walk around, Lorraine. I agree that those clouds are magnificent and so was that giant snowman! The soup and fresh-baked bread will be wonderful too, I know!

  36. What a delightful walk it was with you! Such amazing sights to see everywhere! I must admit I love seeing the sea, it is just so beautiful with the different cloud formations on it! I agree with you that every day offers up new delights in the world around us! I would love to sit down with a cup of tea with you while you fix the lovely lunch you mentioned. Hugs to you today :)
