Snow days and Happy Valentine's Day!

Snowy days and Happy Valentine's Day! I find myself without energy to make much for Valentine's Day. I plan on giving my husband a nice card and make a nice meal for us. I have been feeling weird ever since I took the shingles vaccine and a flu vaccine at the same time. Whau, one can have weird side effects it seems. I hope little by little it will go away! I have been reading, embroidering and doing some crochet. I had deleted a few of my previous post, specially the posts with photos of kids or the ones that shows the face closer. I discovered that some malicious and inappropriate web sites where visiting my blog. It's sad that blogger don't care about that. This upsets me greatly. It's a crazy planet we live in. Today we also found out that "people" broke into one of our churches in the country and stole all they had that were of value, electronic equipment and such. Even tiny churches in the middle of nowhere can be targeted. I know it seems hard to believe that and it's not an incredible tale, for it did happened today.

 In our way to a small town somewhat nearby.  That is what we see from the car. Yes indeed it's a white world.
 When we got to that town we see that they are like us just covered in snow.
 We watched the movie " A Wrinkle In Time" which is based in the book by Madeleine L'Engle. It's based in a religious book. It's about free will. She broke control by love. We read the book but of course wanted to see the movie.
 Beautiful special effects.

 Seen by the car. We have at the moment 13 degrees ( -10 Celsius.) which is very nice.
This town has the cutest train station...I will someday take photos.

 Green tea is one health thing I like to have however I only have a cup about once or twice a week. I love it with full fat powder milk (although not always) and some honey.  I know I'm weird.
 Son made some homemade bread using this method here.
 We also saw the movie "The Guernsey Literary And Potato Peel Pie Society." We both love it. I read the book but I really enjoyed the movie.
 Those poor cows out there looked so cold.
 Daughter asked me to make some Christmas stockings. I didn't had time last Christmas but I'm working on them now.  She wanted it handmade.  I plan on having the first letter of their name embroidered on each stocking. Nothing fancy but more country looking. Fingers crossed it will turn out ok. I will show you when it's all done.

 Buckwheat pancakes is something I really like for breakfast. I got some really nice maple syrup when we were in Maine last year and it went very well with this.

Wishing you a lovely Valentine's Day and keep warm if you live in the North US. It' snowing right now and tonight it will fall plenty.
