Hello Britt, What fun to see Marta playing in the snow. It reminded me of my childhood and of my own children enjoying such a day. Lorrie

A beautiful reflection for Lent. Finding silence in the midst of noise and hurry. Lovely. Lorrie

Oh, that doesn't look like much fun. What luck to have such strong arms available to help out! Lorrie

What beautiful eyes and complexion Marta has. It is so true that children need time alone for it is in those times that imagination can develop. Learning to be comfortable in solitude is so important. Thank you for taking the time to blog while you are at the cabin. We appreciate the effort! Lorrie

The sun's return is something to be celebrated! My husband and I have noticed that the days are slowly lengthening. We had a sunny weekend, too. Lorrie

We eat fish once or twice a week. Usually salmon or tilapia. I like making shrimp or tuna cakes as well. I think that if parents would take the time to prepare fresh food for their children, the children would grow up not really enjoying much of that "junk food." Our own children love vegetables and I think it's because that's what was placed before them at the table every day. It does take some effort, but most of the effort is in the mind - making decisions and choices. The rest can be organized with ease. Lorrie

Marta, What fun to read about your trip to Oslo. I'm glad your Mamma bought you some chocolate - that makes any day special! Lorrie in Victoria, BC, Canada

I love soup and there are so many kinds to choose from. Fish soup sounds delicious - I just might make it for dinner tonight. Here's a list of my favourite soups (in no particular order). - Roasted Butternut Squash - Spinach and Sausage - Carrot and Parsnip with Ginger - Leek and Roasted Garlic - Roasted Tomato A soup feature would be a wonderful idea!

Those boots are so chic - AND they will keep your feet dry! I loved riding the train in Europe. I wish they were more in use here in Canada. Lorrie

It's amazing what inventive meals can be made from what's hiding in our pantries. Yours looks delicious and I would agree that the walnuts would make the dish! Here's hoping for drier weather. Lorrie

Living under those conditions for a long time is indeed draining. I hope the situation eases so that you can get back to normal life. The weather seems crazy everywhere this year. From snow we've gone to heavy rain and flooding. This morning there is a faint bit of sky showing, so perhaps the rain has gone for now. Lorrie

Oh, what beautiful work she does. Ideas are racing through my head. But I have so many projects on the go. How to decide? How to take the time? Lorrie

Brrr - ice water on the feet is not a good thing. Some chic red boots sound like a wonderful solution. We are in the midst of rain after a snowy couple of weeks - our snow is almost gone except in the woods. I miss the way snow brightens up the landscape - now all is grey and dark. Your photos are beautiful. Lorrie

Happy New Year, Britt. I would love to join you in running out to catch a snowflake on my tongue. Snow falling is so beautiful! Ours is all melting, but we did have a white Christmas! May 2009 bring many joys and blessings. Lorrie

Happy St. Lucia day to you! Life's changes seem to come upon us suddenly, although in reality they take years. Just the two of you eating breakfast is similar to my experience this year - the first when no child was home to help decorate the Christmas tree. They are adults and are growing their own traditions. Sweet and sad at the same time. Lorrie

Your snow is so beautiful. Here on the west coast of Canada we have not yet had a hard frost. In fact...I have delphiniums that are starting to open their buds. Is that not the strangest thing for this time of year? I've enjoyed this long, lingering autumn and days of sunshine.
