I won an amazing gift from Brenda at The Rusty Thimble.

Is this not the sweetest bunny you have ever seen! Her little feet are square nails! I just love everything about her. I hope you go and visit Brenda and see her amazing creations.

Now look at that face how can you not love that face!
Yep Miss B came for an over night and we gave her the royal treatment. We ended the day with ice cream, chocolate ice cream with lots of rainbow sprinkles. 

She loves to visit the fire station with pepe.  

Saturday I got out with a friend for a bit of snow shoeing. Holy snow shoes! am I out of shape. All those whoopie pies and sitting around came back to haunt me. Yikes!

Saturday night we headed to a little pub in a very tiny town that we had heard lots of really great things about. It did not disappoint,live music great food and drinks and bumping into people we knew. 

Sunday afternoon husband and I strap on the snow shoes and take off on a very easy hike into the water fall that is frozen solid.

And he too feels this cold snowy winter did us in with a little help from me and baking goodies all the time. We made promises to get moving and try for more fruit. That being said.....

king Arthur Flour has a new quarterly magazine and I had to have ! I will let you know how it is I haven't cracked the cover yet.

And last but not least girls night was this week  this was my first one in months. I had some puff pastry and 2 apples, 2 tab of rasins, and 2 tab of slivered almonds, some cinnamon and a couple of tablespoons of sugar and you get this. so yummy and not to sweet. 
It was a hit I didn't bring any home.
Happy March!

That is a cool bunny. In fact the whole weekend sounds like a winner. Well, except for the snowshoeing....that looks like work :)

Miss B looks adorable in her glasses. Congratulations on your win of the primitive rabbit, arrived just in the nick of time. Oh my but those snow shoes and cross country skis give one heck of a work out.

Lucky you, she does make the most wonderful pieces.
I saw snowshoes in a job lot, but not sure if they would work or what type is good, just for fun around here. I cannot ski in this and thought a pair would be a good way for me to go in back and play with the dog.

The only thing cuter than that bunny is Miss B. Congrats on you win.
Hugs :)

I think Miss B. is far cuter than the bunny!

Morning Cathy, what a wonderful win from Brenda, sweet bunny. Oh Miss B is adorable, cute with her glasses. Good for you to get the snowshoes on and get outdoors. Blessings Francine.

I'm with Judy. That bunny isn't any competition to that cute little Miss B. with here darling glasses.

Wow, you are just in luck to go snow showing with all the snow this year. It looks like a nice trail and so much fun.

You'll be in shape before the grass grows.
You looks at recipes and you bake. I look at recipes and I drool, hahaha. Never seems to be enough time to bake a lot. It may be a good thing for me. In this cold winter a gal needs a layer of fat to keep warm I say. It melts when the snow melts.

Those apple delights with the puff pastry looks incredibly yummy.

Have a great week.
