“Winter is the time for comfort, for good food and warmth, for the touch of a friendly hand and for a talk beside the fire: it is the time for home.” ~ Edith Sitwell
Happy February! Thank you for your comments on the last post and for sharing your personal experiences of how others saved you in times of need. Your stories left fingerprints on my heart.
It’s another snow day at the Fairfield House. Mother Nature tucked us in last night under a thick white blanket. I woke up to this view.
Puss E. Cat must have told others about her “three hots and a cot” because this week another feral cat has been spotted. Princess Arianna has dubbed this one Kit E Cat. Unfortunately, it’s people and camera shy so I have no portraits to share yet. We will take it to the local vet and have it vaccinated as well as spayed or neutered to prevent the Fairfield House cat stats from increasing.
Apparently the local birds have also been spreading the word.
I am not a big television viewer but last year my sweet friend Laura got me hooked on Downton Abbey. Are you watching? If not, you must! I liken it to reading a favorite novel and have come to know and love the well cast characters and the lives they lead. I strongly recommend if you aren’t watching it yet, to view the first two seasons before you begin the new one.
Are you or someone you know looking for a new camera? Emily purchased this for a photography class she never took. Too much time has passed for her to return it. She’s including the case and strap that she purchased separately. It’s a great deal for someone!
Tonight is an ideal evening for stew! I’ve tried many different recipes and this is everyone’s favorite. It’s easy to prepare and delicious. I will serve it with warm biscuits.
I apologize for the delay in mailing the Susan Branch calendars but they were on back order. I’ve since received them. Some have already been mailed and the remainders will go out this week.
Today is Groundhog Day. Punxsutawney Phil didn’t see his shadow so according to folklore, spring will come early; if he had winter weather would have continued for six more weeks. According to Fairfield House past experience, let sleeping ground hogs sleep! If you wake them, run like hell!
