Where have I been???

Ohhh....just around! Working mostly and shopping and crafting a little. I am trying like crazy to get my onies finished for the Prim Pals Ornie swap! I only have a week to mail them...yikes! I will show you all what I have been up to soon.....but have to wait til everyone gets their ornies first.

My fav Prim store opened up in a temporary location...remember they had a fire earlier this year. I was so excited to visit them yesterday. Everything looks great and I bought a few goodies. I think my favorite were the farmhouse scented wax crumbles...they smell sooooo good!

I will try to catch up with you all soon.

Hugs and have a great weekend!

Happy Canadian Thanksgiving!

Today was our Thanksgiving here in Canada. I have so many things to be thankful for this year. My own health and especially the health of my brother and all my family. To have a job and a roof over our head and to have my husband back to work after 3 long years. I am thankful for all my friends both here at home and in my online groups. You are all very special to me and I treasure the friendships I have made. My sister cooked today and our whole family was there. This is a pic my husband took of us all after dinner. My brother is in the middle, my sister Kelly and her two girls on the left and mom me and my son(with his new mohawk...lord help me) on the right!

Its not often we get a good picture of all of us so it was nice. I suspected my brother would say no....but he was a good sport about it.

I would also like to say I am thankful for ALL the troops both Canadian and American who are fighting a war to keep us all safe. I pray for their safety while defending our rights.

Hope you all had a good weekend.

Cowboy Breakfast

Got to love hungry men! Every year we buy our wood for the winter and have it delivered along with our neighbours. Between us we have 12 cord of wood. Thats alot of cutting and splitting as it comes in *tree* lengths. Its been cut for a few weeks and today is splitting day so I told them I would make what we call Cowboy Breakfast to feed them all this morning. As you can see they were enjoying it. Thanks to my husband and great neighbours for keeping us warm this winter!
Here is a picture of the cowboy breakfast right from the oven. You cant really tell what it is so I will explain. That is my big turkey roaster almost full of layers of yummy goodness!
First you turn the over to 350 and and put about 3 tbsps of butter in the roaster to melt.

Add a package of frozen hashbrowns, stir occassionally.

While those are browning cook your bacon(I used 2 pounds this morning)

Add Bacon to hashbrowns and put it back in the oven.

Cook breakfast sausages and cut into bite size...add to roaster on top of bacon.

Scramble eggs(I did a dozen this morning) and after they are cooked add to roaster.

Top all of this with shredded cheese and let it melt.

Creates a very hardy layered breakfast that we love!

Hope you are all having a great weekend. Wood is almost cut and now I get to feed them all dinner!
