“The snow doesn’t give a soft white damn whom it touches.”

Yesterday I snapped a couple of photos of the flowers that are still blooming in our yard; this morning we woke to a winter wonderland. It’s still snowing. I don’t know if it will last but, according to the weather prognosticators, we’re in for a cold snap next week. It seems winter is finally showing up.

A few years ago, along with many other bloggers, I used to post a list on Friday of favourite things from the week. Thought I might do that again so here’s this week’s Friday Fave Five list.

  1. A visit to the Rogers Bulk Food store. I have no idea how I missed the fact that there was a Rogers flour mill nearby that’s been milling flour and grains for 60 years but I did. Anyway, take a peek at the company overview and you’ll understand why we’ll be regulars from now on.
  2. A return to sunshine and light however brief.
  3. Figuring out how to connect my phone with our Samsung soundbar via Bluetooth so I could listen to my next favourite thing.
  4. Steve Bell’s seasonal album, The Feast of Seasons.
  5. Chickpea ratatouille. I could eat this stuff almost every day.

Today: a bit of shopping and coffee with my bestie. Oh, and decking the halls here at home.

Thanks so much for stopping by. I'm here early most mornings with one of my photos and a few words about life and those thin places where faith intersects.

  1. Do you have a recipe for the ratatouille? I’ve seen it done so many ways.

    1. Karen, yes. I had a link in the post but it isn’t clear that it’s a link. Here’s the simple recipe I use. https://www.forksoverknives.com/recipes/oven-baked-chickpea-ratatouille/

      1. Thanks!
