Oh my goodness! How do you catch up on a month of Friday blessing lists? Continue reading
Spring had come once more to Green Gables — the beautiful capricious, reluctant Canadian spring, lingering along through April and May in a succession of sweet, fresh, chilly days, with pink sunsets and miracles of resurrection and growth.
Anne of Green Gables – ch 20
Capricious – given to sudden and unaccountable changes of mood or behavior. Check!
Reluctant – unwilling and hesitant; disinclined. Check!
Chilly – uncomfortably cool or cold. Double check!!
With temperatures of 24C, it’s like we skipped spring all together and arrived at summer.
But, nobody’s complaining!
PS – it was an unplanned blog break. Feels good to be back!
It’s Friday and time to say thanks for all the blessings!
1. Watching our girl in her final show with the School of Performing Arts, Holland College.
2. A birthday celebration! John turned 29 on the 26th.
3. You may have noticed something in the picture above – birthday pie and not cake.
This is John’s favourite, and most requested, dessert – Butterscotch Pie. I wanted to share the recipe because it is SO good. You’ll find it here, at Warm Vanilla Sugar . It’s appropriately called “Nanny’s Butterscotch Pie” 🙂
4. Woods walking! The snow has finally melted enough in the woods so that I can go for a walk there. There are still some patches left in the low lying areas, but for the most part, the trails are open. It’s so lovely to hear the springtime songs of the birds among the trees. I spied this tiny surprise when I was out on my walk.
Here’s a bonus favourite for you – look who’s smiling!
