Five things that are making me a little happy today:
One: Our winter storm has blown over now, and I'm thankful that we barely had anything here to make our lives more difficult. Plenty of people in other regions suffered power outages, ice-covered roads and heavy snow. Living beside Lake Ontario has its advantages. Today it's bright and sunny, although with the cloud cover gone, the temperature has dropped yet again. I'm good with that though!

Two: My Christmas cactus is getting ready to bloom. It usually does a thing just before Christmas and again just before Easter. This past Christmas I think we were blessed with one or two blooms. A few more have emerged in the past week, so it should be a better Easter show.
Three: While decluttering/reorganizing some cupboards in the kitchen, I pulled out this pretty vase and decided to swap it for the blue & white striped biscuit jar I had been using for my wooden spoons on the counter. It's taller and narrower, and I love the little birds on it.
Four: A drain tray full of blue & white dishes! I had finished washing up some dishes, and continued with washing a few of my display things, and thought they looked so nice in the drain tray with the sun pouring into the kitchen :) I've waited a long time for my blue kitchen, and it's so nice to see the blue & white dishes looking so crisp and pretty in there now.
Five: After reading about Brenda's popovers, I pulled out my old Purity cookbook (again from my great aunt's house!), and decided to make these butterscotch rolls (tea biscuits with brown sugar and butter filling). They are going really well with a cup of tea this afternoon :)
Thanks for stopping by today!
