The scone recipe and other blog housekeeping

I did take the time this afternoon to add the orange cranberry scone recipe (mentioned in this morning's post) to my recipe blog (link on the side bar). I hope to get it updated with a few other recipes this weekend. There are lots of my family favorites already available. :)

Also, I've had a few requests to show pictures of my house. I have quite a few, if you scroll WAY down on the side bar to Labels, then click on My Home, it will bring up the posts that show those pictures. I'd provide a link but I can't find my son's mouse. It has apparently run away. (He did use to have a wireless mouse because he is left handed. I'm not sure why he went back to the one he has now, other than the fact the wireless mouse was a battery hog.)

I took some pictures of my home decorated for Christmas and I may show some of them (late, of course) when I get my computer back. They are still "parked" on the digital camera my sweet blog friend sent me.

I do miss being able to respond to comments and to comment very much on your blogs. Since my son has his computer most of the time, and my husband needs the computer when available to do our online banking and budgeting, I have to read most of my blogs on Bloglines... quick as a bunny!

Brenda, I'm so glad you are back to posting again. I always feel such a sense of peace when I come and visit you, and I almost always leave a little wiser:o)

Hi Brenda :) Thank you for your sweet comment today! It is a joy to have friends who lift us up, isn't it?

I am excited about the scone recipe - thanks!

And I have to tell you that I laughed out loud at the "freezing my giblets" thing from your previous post - and then again when you shared the source.
Love you, Q

I have enjoyed warming up by your fire! It has been chilly and rainy here in So. Cal.. Nothing like your part of the woods, I'm sure. I even have the urge to hibernate!

Have a great weekend!

I love the combination of cranberry and orange so this is sure to be a winner - thanks for taking the time to post it!

Maybe I'll make them for breakfast tomorrow .... mmmm!

I hope you computer parts come in soon! I understand the frustration of things breaking down all to well these days - and I can relate more with the tight budget since we went through 1/4 of our year's budget in 10 days! Whew! God is good and He is providing, but it is really stretching my faith! I didn't realize how comfortable money in the bank was until it wasn't there! Too funny!

Glad your car is fixed and hopefully your computer will be too! The cranberry scones are good at Starbucks, but then, I love anything with cranberries in it.

Take care,

Hi Brenda - Just thought I'd be more than a "lurker" and say something for once! I was totally drawn in to the image of sitting in a snuggly robe with a cup'o'coffee, watching the sunrise. honor of that, I'm going to sit here now in my easy chair watching out the window for snow that is supposed to be arriving soon, and browsing through your recipe file! Thanks for sharing...and thanks for being here...
