Still Celebrating plus Downton Abbey Excitement

I don't know about you but one of my favorite things about Christmastime is that it truly begins on Christmas Day and continues until the feast of Epiphany which falls on January 6, 2013.  Although, if you are like me and have jumped on the Downton Abbey bandwagon wholeheartedly, January 6, 2013 is more importantly the return of Season 3!  (Isn't that sacrilegious of me?)  I am already setting the DVR and planning a totally Downton evening.  I am thinking tea and biscuits or maybe something suggested in this article.  What about you?

If you are somehow behind on watching this amazing show, check the PBS schedule now and catch up quickly! (You can also watch a quick re-cap episode of Seasons One and Two free on-line here.)

Keep celebrating and keep in touch!


  1. I have to admit... I have not seen this show yet. I have heard about it a lot, but haven't watched an episode. Maybe I should?! :)

  2. Merry Christmas Misty! Enjoy the rest of this season!

  3. My husband suggests maybe we should identify with the downstairs food instead of upstairs. And my son is not thrilled that his 17th birthday is overshadowed by the 3 wise men and Downton Abbey!

  4. I love to hear that someone else loves DA! I have been counting down the days until June 6. I hadn't thought about a themed snack but that's a great idea! I was more concerned about making sure I got the kids to bed early. ;-)

  5. I am really in need to get started watching this show! Just found your's beautiful!

  6. SO I am thinking that we need to watch an episode together....and make some SCONES! ;)

  7. SO I am thinking that we need to watch an episode together....and make some SCONES! ;)

Locally Grown {stuffed green peppers recipe}

  Last weekend we took the whole family to a nearby produce stand.  We were craving something that tasted fresh from the garden and since I don't have my own garden, we found this place.     The fields were full of fall-colored flowered.  Can't wait for those cooler days to come.         But for now, we are reveling in the height of summer sunshine and produce.       It's easy to go overboard here and buy much more than you can use in the next few days.  I don't even like okra but they look so inviting in those cute blue crates.     These tomatoes inspired a caprese salad for lunch: tomato slices cut into quarters, hunks of fresh mozzarella, snipped basil leaves, salt, pepper and drizzles of olive oil and red wine vinegar.       These strawberries wound up being dunked in Silky Chocolate Fondue .       Every girl dreams of doing her shopping with one of these adorable woven baskets, doesn't she?       Even the boys had fun playing in the sand while I took m

Savoring Summer {Staying in the Season}

The desk full of binders, calendars, sports schedules and dreamy ideas is where I currently find myself, while my mind continues to stray back to the mountains and clouds of our trip to the Black Hills of South Dakota. We have been home for a week and I decided in future, I must come home better mentally prepared for the onslaught of emails and to-do items that pile up when we go away for two whole weeks. The fact that school resumes one week from today only intensifies the pressure to get it all done right away. Usually at this point in August I am eager for cooler, less humid days hinting at the beauty of spicy Autumn flavors. Not this year. I am so invigorated by my return to normal movement following the long recovery from knee surgery that I don't want these summery days to end. At least not until they officially end on September 23, 2014. This year feels like a do-over, the last one so consumed by injury, pain and slow, slow, slow recovery. My mind is bursti

Petals :: 52 Photos Project

Where I live the Bradford Pears have bloomed and blown and the Cherry Blossoms are in full blossom.  Even though that means our allergy season is now officially underway, I cannot help opening our windows every morning in hopes of hearing the birds singing to greet the day.  Springtime has conveniently coincided with my personal recovery process from knee surgery.  As I am slowly re-gaining mobility on crutches it seems an added encouragement that the weather is also improving and the trees are welcoming my return with their flowers. What a treat it would be to be able to put down my crutches in time for Easter Sunday and walk again on my own! (I am doubtful but one can hope.) Sharing with 52 Photos Project :: Petals
