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

~ E.E. Cummings


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.


I’m a writer, reader, and creative. I thought by now I’d have things figured out, but I keep coming up with more questions. I think that’s okay. I’m here most mornings pondering ordinary things and the 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.

      1. Thanks!
