Friday, it's Friday!

Oh... hey February!

Wasn't it just January, like yesterday?

It was -43°C this morning.

The sun is setting later.
Snow squalls have rolled through a few times this week.
Cafe Mocha is a beautiful thing, so are Rocky Road Brownies.
Hockey playoffs mean the season is winding up.
Sweet potato fries rock.
Buttermilk pancakes with buttermilk caramel syrup...dessert for dinner.
Teenage boys that aren't too old to hit the bookstore for a Lord of the Rings colouring book.
Post-hockey pizza.
Star Wars Lego figures.  The youngest boy is collecting an army of them.

Other random bits...

Potato Chip Cookies.  We all need these in our lives.

Did you have pancakes on Pancake Tuesday?

I'm loving these walk-in shower ideas.

I tried making sushi at home once.  It was a nightmare.  But these I think I can manage!

And is brown rice really better than white rice?

I want to visit Winnipeg.  But not in the winter.  They don't call it Winterpeg for nothing.

This Almond Cherry Loaf is perfect for Valentine's Day.

And there's a bunch of Valentine's Day inspiration right here.

Happy Friday, happy weekend!


  1. Love those star wars lego figures! Lego is the best toy on earth!

  2. Great photos! Stopping by from Photo Friday and hoping you'll join up at Wordless Wednesday (on Tuesday) here:

  3. Yes, I made blueberry pancakes on Fat Tuesday! I checked out that link about Winnipeg and it was great. It touched on some high points but there is so much more to see in Winnipeg too! I always loved going to the Mennonite Village in Steinbach as well -- good times!

  4. Loving the Star Wars lego figures! We did have a few pancakes - though we almost completely forgot about it! x #pocolo

  5. Great to get snapshot glimpses of your story! What fun! Visiting today as your neighbor at #FriendshipFriday.

  6. Great pictures, your Rocky Road brownies look amazingly yummy!!

    Thanks for sharing at the weekend blog hop

  7. All that food looks amazing - especially the pizza !!
    I'm trying to be good though, although did treat myself to some pancakes on Tuesday!

    Fab post.


    KT xo.

  8. You are right - sweet potato fries are the best! I am craving for some now!! :) #PoCoLo

  9. Thank you for linking up with One Daily Positive, it's great to see what everyone else is up to around the world and that I'm not the only one who can see the positives in their lives, lovely collection of photographs. No pancakes here for me, I completely forgot and I live in a Muslim country so no advertising of it, although we do have christmas and easter celebrated here as well as all the other religious festivals just no sign of pancake day

  10. mmmmmm, sweet potato fries!! How can anyone go back to regular after having them?? I start a new diet on Monday, and I have to avoid all the yumminess on Pinterest for 21 Days. Good thing I deleted my account! But sweet potatoes? Are ON the menu because they are healthy. Yeah!

    1. Just popped back in to say thanks for sharing on the OneGoodThing link up! I missed those walk in shower ideas on the first pass-by so I'll have to take a look now. :)

  11. Ah, the invasion of Star Ward Lego! I think they have occupied every room in our house now

  12. Lovely pictures! I want that mocha now! & potato chip cookies? Who knew?! #PoCoLo

  13. Pancakes with buttermilk caramel syrup? Oh, does that sound delicious! So do the potato chip cookies! Happy weekend, Jenn!

  14. I miss reading your posts =) Looks like an awesome week! Happy Hearts Day. #pocolo

  15. Looks like a great week, sunsets, hockey, bookstores and a mocha, yep sounds great! #mg

  16. These are some lovely random things. Those brownies look delicious! And sweet potato fries are the best!!! Thanks for linking up. :)

  17. Seriously where did February go - crazy we're half through!
    Those chip cookies - uh yes please!

  18. Wonderfully captured randomness! Thanks for sharing at

  19. I keep wondering, too, how it is that time just flies so much... And - - -43 °C?! That is freakin' unbearable. We had 'only' -18° with a windchill of -30° and that was already way, way, way too cold for this soul here. Stay warm, Jenn!

  20. I don't know how to translate Farenheit to Celsius, but that just sounds COLD!!! Don't know that I would ever leave the house. Those pizzas look really good. Thanks for sharing these great pics!

  21. I clicked on your post and I swear the only thing I have seen is the pic of the rocky road brownie. I try to focus on the other pics, but my eyes are magnetically drawn back ;-)
    Thansk for sharing with us, Tracey xx #abitofeverything

  22. -43? Yikes, that does sound cold - I'd need several of those rocky roads before even contemplating going outside :) thanks for linking up to #pocolo

  23. Brrr that is cold! Your photos always make me so hungry! ;) Thanks for linking to #PoCoLo
