I'm starting of this Ramblings Post with what I had for lunch yesterday: Belgian Endives or 'Witlof' as we call it in Holland. This vegetable is very common in The Netherlands but extremely expensive here in The States. I love it so much that the rest of the family is not even allowed to have any... <wink>
Here I served it with a pinch of nutmeg, some hard boiled eggs and a piece of French (triple cream!) cheese: Yum!

Yesterday turned out to be a much nicer day than forecast. The sun came out in the afternoon and it almost felt warmer outside than inside!  

Talking of temperatures: my brilliant Mr. G. managed to fix the furnace (by buying a part and installing it himself) and now the house is nice and toasty again after two days of fairly chilly temps...

I had a cup of tea with my lovely Scottish neighbor in the afternoon who I hadn't seen in way too long and afterwards I shot some colorful pictures in my backyard... (I will show you more next week for my Signs of Spring)

I made her this little card as a 'Thank You':

Good thing I took so many pictures yesterday because today is all cloudy and rainy again and it looks like it will stay that way for the coming up week.
Oh well, Spring was nice while it lasted!


  1. Mooie plaatjes! En wat een handyman!

  2. So pretty....rain rain here today again...oh well...we have such pretty green around us everywhere I look. Have a great day. xo

  3. Yes, it's back to winter, here too :~( Sigh.

    The card is adorable! I'm sure your neighbor loves it!

  4. Your lunch seems so yummie! I wonder if it is the same endives that we have here? Did you try them while you were in Sweden?
    Here it is full spring with almost summer-temeratures, but the weather-forcast is not so promising...
    Kram, Monica

    1. Haha, it has a hole in its backside for cotton wool! :-)

  6. I spy a cute bunny ..about to nibble your lunch :) x x x x

  7. That lunch looks very tasty! Me too like "endiver" very much and the ones we can buy here in Sweden are mostly imported from Holland!!! And I love nutmeg, so I will give this dish a try!
    Spring's on its way I can see. We had it yesterday but today it's gone. But that's March.

  8. Sounded like a lovely time even your rain looks lovely to me!


How wonderful to hear from you!

Flooded waters...

With all the recent rainfall and snow melting in the mountains, some flooding occurred once again in our valley. Yesterday, whils...
