Sunday Romance: a winter walk & a pot of soup

Yesterday was one of those winter days when we got to go outside for awhile. The temperature actually got all the way up to 32 degrees!

I put on my favorite sweater…

and we went for a winter walk.

I decided to bring my camera and share some snapshots from our Sunday…

after our walk we went home and made a pot of seafood chowder…

here’s the RECIPE

We brewed a big pot of tea…

and I created a new savory scone recipe. They were perfect with the soup!

Here’s the RECIPE

    Wrapped up in 5 blankets (because I was freezing cold in the house) with earplugs and earmuffs on to block the TV noise (because I don’t have a bedroom) trying to read a book (because my dad said I was using his computer too much). It was a lovely day. I should’ve taken pictures! LOL (P.S. Your scones and soup look delicious!)

    I admire your tolerance for living with the parents. If I had to live with mine I *would* take pictures…and the captions wouldn’t be at all pleasant 😉

    The soup and scones were uber yum. I will share the recipes soon…

    Thanks for the recipes. I will definitely be trying them out. As for the parents… I hate that I sound so complainy, because they have been so generous in opening their home to me. If it was just my mom, I’d never leave, and she’d be okay with it.

    I’m LOLing at pictures and unpleasant captions… maybe I should! The joys of being an adult living with her parents again after almost 6 years away. Thank GOODNESS it’s just me, and not me + a family of my own. I know a lot of people who have had to do that.

    You’re welcome! Let me know what ya think 😉

    You don’t sound complainy. I think it’s totally normal to be feeling that way. Yes, I can’t imagine how difficult it would be to move an entire family back in with the parents either. I’ve known people who’ve had to do that too, and their patience astounds me.

    I like the ornate bike in the snow…I had a black ornate chair last year in the snow, this year the black ornate bird feeder to entertain the six cats…

    What a nice way to spend your day! Dana – I’m one of those that went home and multiplied. Kory & I moved in with my parents when Dakota was 1, and left 18 months later with Dalton too. It’s a period of time I don’t miss!!
