Happy Family Day

Ontario, Saskatchewan & Albert were all celebrating this Day as Family Day.

What did I do on Family Day?

This was the outside & inside temps this morning at 7:10 am (I forgot to look earlier when I was up at 5:00 am), but when I was outside that thermometer read -27 without even counting the Wind Chill.  It was a good day to make a big pot of Big Batch Chicken Soup.  I have been really loving my dehydrated veggies this long long Winter.

Once I got the soup going, the laundry off the drying racks folded, dishes done and the bed made, I carried on to ...

... some Crabby Cabbie paperwork, and writing a note to get posted tomorrow.

I did 30 minutes on the Treadmill, kissed my beloved husband, kissed my handsome Aussie dog, and ....

.... headed on out into the kitchen to make some Cheese Tea Biscuits to go with the Homemade Soup.


Later this afternoon I helped Rob bring a load of wood into the basement as we are suppose to get dumped on with more Snow tonight.  MORE SNOW !!!  baaaaaahhhhhhhh

Rob is out trying to get lots and lots of snow moved so he can get back to our drive shed.  That sure is a lot of heavy snow to be moved out.  Our tractor is working hard today, and all of this Winter.

What a Family Day Rob and I had spent together.  The key in that phrase is "together", and that we were, Just North of Wiarton & South of the Checkerboard"


  1. Cheese tea biscuites look very welcome indeed!

  2. The cheese Biscuits looks and sound YUMMY ! It was - 27 here this morning to but no winds , then the sun came out and warmed it up by this after noon it was up to -5 . Yup more snow for us here to but then by WED the temps are to be above 0 and rain one day so with a bit of luck all our snow will be almost gone . Today we just puttered went for a nice walk with our Miggs . Thanks for sharing . Have a good day !

  3. Looks like we were not the only ones working hard this Family Day.:) Take care more snow oh boy can't wait;) hug B

  4. No family day here as Chris' company doesn't recognise it. We are waiting for the snow to start,but hope it moves on...we've had enough.

  5. Oh, I'm so grateful for stored veggies (dried, canned and frozen) this winter!! Just made a soup with our frozen stock myself :)

  6. I think your cheese tea biscuits would be dangerous in my house. We'd eat too much and fight over the last one!
    I'm ready for winter to end. Can only imagine how you feel!
    Thank you for linking this week, Cindy.


How nice of you to drop around to have a wee visit with me to see what I have been up to from time to time. I look forward to your comments as they add much brightness to my each and every day to know there are such wonderful people out there.
