time has flown by...

Life just seems to be pulling us in several directions lately--ordinary stuff but extra busy all the same.
No matter what, some rest and relaxation must be fit in.
We managed to get out cross country skiing once before much of the snow melted. It was a very cold, but beautifully sunny day that gave the pictures that blue light...

We passed by some of the trees marked for sugaring...

...and the sugar shack waiting for its new roof...
Every bird's nest was visible, capped with puffy snow...
And time for tea is not to be missed, no matter how hectic life becomes.

Today, with tea, I had a piece of pineapple skillet upside down cake that I made yesterday, and you can find the recipe here.
Yum!

  7. Glad to hear that all is well with you. Loved the photos, but pardon my ignorance, what is sugaring?

  8. Isn't it hard sometimes, with all the blogging and baking and crafting we want to do, to fit in the magazine reading, the tea/coffee and the sit-down relaxation time?!

    I set two magazines on my kitchen table yesterday - Country Gardening and Mother Earth News... put my blankie in the dryer to warm it up and had every intention of sitting on the couch to enjoy a relaxing read. Never did it. Got sidetracked in all the "to-do's". As usual. My husband was NOT surprised. LOL

    Wishing you and yours a wonderful weekend!

  9. Our snow is all gone - I have to say that I miss it. It's much cheerier than grey and mud. Those photos are beautiful!

  10. The little bird's nest is so sweet. So many things we think of as beautiful in the warmer months are just as lovely in winter.

    Warm wishes,

  13. Magical photos! I'm glad you have spent some quality time together. I would love to try cross-country skiiing! Our snow has all gone now to be replaced by muddy, wet and grey days.
    Oh well spring will be here in no time!

  15. Oh Deb,

    You just had to post a link for that recipe didn't you? :) It was delicious. I too savored mine with a cup of tea, Lady Grey.

    I love the photos, especially the bird's nest, too precious!

    Have a blessed evening!

  18. Love your beautiful snow scenes. Nothing like a sunny day after the storm. In Michigan I am ice skating on the lake in front of my house and hope to keep the rink open in spite of more predicted snow. Meanwhile I will try the pineapple upside down cake recipe. Sounds a bit lighter than my mother's gooey rich recipe from long ago. Thanks!
