Morning Prim Folk,  Happy Friday to you sweet friends!!!!!                              With the weather nice and mild lately we decided to take a ride to the trailer at the lake to check things out.  Was a nice scenic winter ride, not to much snow in the fields, roads were good and saw two beautiful Snowy Owls sitting on hydro poles.   Felt good to be back in St. Malo. Could not drive on the road leading to the trailer but close enough to see all is o k, not a lot of snow, just enough to get stuck in.  Then we carried on  to the lake to see if anyone we know  is on the lake ice fishing, lots of ice shacks on the lake, like a little village. Some are very cute, all have stoves to keep one toasty warm  while fishing.  No one was out fishing so snapped a few pictures them homeward bound.... Wishing you a wonderful weekend,  so long January, Warm Blessings Francine.

Morning Prim Folk,  here we are on the last week of January already, wow!!!!  Not to much new and exciting around here of late, maybe a good thing.  Weather has been on the mild side, no winter storms like some of the eastern States had, so bad, hope people and animals are warm and safe........I am still puttering around the house decorating with more hearts,  the latest was hanging little stone red hearts on my gourd tree. Looks rather sweet I think, stay tuned, more hearts to come. .............Wishing you a cozy Monday,  Warm Blessings Francine.

Morning Prim Folk,  thank you for all the well wishes on my sore back, you are all so sweet. The  back is feeling much better these days but still taking is easy day to day.  One can only sit around for so long, with Love day coming up, decided to decorate with some of my hearts. I do love prim hearts, I keep many out all year long for cannot put them away. So here are a few, more hearts to come....... Wishing you all a warm and wonderful day, Blessings Francine.

Good Morning Prim Folk,  Happy Sunday to you all!!!!!!   Has been a very quiet weekend here for me, just the way I like it most of the time.  Plus Thursday I did hurt my lower back, all I did was reach down to put my pants on and oh oh, can't straighten  up. So much fun ageing I would say NOT!!!! should have stayed in the P.J's I'm thinking.  Today  I can move around  without hurting so much, good thing.  Most  of the weekend was spent  in a comfy chair with  one of my favorite books, yummy scented candle burning, Angel napping beside me and relaxed.  The weather is frightful out there anyway so just as well to snuggle in and be cozy...............  Wishing you all a wonderful day, Warm Blessings Francine.

Morning Prim Folk,  it sure has been bone chilling cold here in Winterpeg lately.  Since last Friday the temps have been in the -39 Celsius with the windchill, oh ya, bone chilling indeed. That is -38.2 in Fahrenheit, still bone chilling I would say.   These frigid days the sun has been shining so that makes the days torerable. Yesterday morning I enjoyed my coffee in the warm sunlight watching the oh so cold birdies at the feeder, not to sure how they survive living in this cold, so I make sure I fill those feeders up for them. ..........Wishing you a cozy day, Warm Blessings Francine.

Good Morning Prim Folk, Happy Friday to you all!!!!!!!!!!  I love log cabins, want to live in one some day, dreams are good.  I wanted a log cabin to decorate with, a small version to place on the fireplace mantle. Have been looking for one for sometime but  are costly and shipping from the States right now is crazy as is our Canadian Dollar, so that's out. Then one day I'm looking out the back door into the back yard and spy my log cabin birdhouse, well, my mind starts working,  sometimes it does ( giggles)  I venture outside and shake the snow off the cabin, there is a log missing on one side of the birdhouse hole, but might work in my favor.  Ask Cam if he can saw a door using the hole and maybe a window where the missing log is. Sweetheart Cam says let's see what I can do, goes downstairs with the cabin, I'm excited!!!! Christmas came and went, so I was busy and not thinking of my log cabin, until Cam came upstairs and handed me my wonderful log cabin a few days after the holidays . Happy dancing!!!!!!!  Thought about what I can use for chinking in
between the logs, I want it to look real, then a friend said to use chalking, went downstairs, put some into a plastic bag, cut a hole in the corner and away I worked, turned out great. Then some brown paint and voila, I have my log cabin I've been wanting, now to win a lottery to get a real log cabin in the woods....... Wishing you a cozy weekend,Warm Blessings Francine.

My ex'es Sister is another dear that I consider a Sis, we have known each other for over 40 years, I grew up with her so yes,  she is close at heart like all my Sister's.  Middle Sis is picking me up this afternoon for some Sissy time, just a coffee together but sure does my heart good........... Wishing you all a wonderful day, Warm Blessings Francine.
