Hope you have a wonderful week. Hugs to Banjo and hope he is doing well. It's raining again here. :)

Betsy Adams said...

Ahhh--you are so lucky not to have to deal with the time change.... It's gonna get dark here by 5 p.m. now... Gads!

I learned something... I had no idea that a cockle could be a pucker in fabric.... Goodness!!!!

Hugs,
Betsy
Your soup and tea sound wonderful.

The sun is going down here. Gad...that's just ridiculous. It's only 4:30. I haven't tried that tea but it does sound good. Hugs, Deb

Wish I had a bowl of that hot chicken soup.

Brian said...

Yummy soup and tea to relax, purrfect!

Our photos said...

The soup looks so yummy en the cards are lovely!
Greetings, RW & SK

Lucky you...I dread the time change. Poor Hobbes--it will get dark early so he won't be able to go outside very long. :( This makes him very crabby.

I made homemade stew today--this cold autumn weather was perfect for that!

Stay warm, my friend. Take care of your cockles.

The tea and soup sound perfect for a day like today--And I'll just add that I have no idea what time it is, half the clocks are wrong in our house, and I'm not sure of which ones! :-)

Eileen said...

The soup looks wonderful, and perfect for a cool day like today! At least, knock wood, it hasn't snowed yet.

Have a wonderful week!

Tamago said...

They sure warm your heart! The chicken vegetable soup looks very yummy. It's getting colder so warm soup is great to warm body and heart :-)
You are very lucky that you don't need to deal with time change!

BeadedTail said...

Sounds like a lovely way to spend a Sunday! Too bad Monday can't be spent the same way! :) Hope Banjo is doing well!

Mary said...

That sure looks like cockle warming soup! And yummy! Yes, you're fortunate not to have to deal with the time change. I get that it's an extra hour for us in the fall, but it's still a huge adjustment. I keep telling myself it's only one little hour. lol

Terri Buster said...

Lucky you- I don't like the time change- either way...I wish they would just get rid of it. Your soup looks yummy!

Ann said...

You're lucky that you don't have to deal with the time change. I find it to be a royal pain in the butt and it takes me a couple weeks to get myself back on track

Ann said...

I forgot to say that I think some of that chicken soup could help me adjust :)

Kerri Farley said...

Happy November! And I love your butterfly in the previous post ! And your cards look so pretty! What sweet friends you have :)

Barbara said...

Wishing you cockles overflowing in warmth and love!

Mariette VandenMunckhof-Vedder said...

Dearest Catherine,
With Cockles you made me think of Cocleshells... and above all the song about Molly Malone: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ruNdU6bGE5E
Probably because we live in Dublin and have heard it perform several times at our Theatre.
But I learned something today...
Hugs,
Mariette

Linda R said...

Cockles... A funny word indeed. :) That soup sure does look yummy. And yes you are lucky you have no time change. I HATE it.

Wishing you a happy week my friend.

Hugs~

SquirrelQueen said...

The soup looks delicious, perfect for a chilly day. You are lucky not to have to deal with the time change. But at least we are back to Standard time, I really dislike DST.

Enjoy the tea.

Linens and Royals said...

You mean soup doesn't always come in a can?
Not sure if I've ever eaten a cockle but I do the song about sweet Molly Malone.

It's me said...

Happy new week darling...love from me...x !

Sylvia said...

Those cards are pretty, Catherine !
High wind and a lot of rain here, I would love to have some of that homemade soup, it looks delicious !
Nice week,
Sylvia

Sandra said...

i might like that blueberry tea, i love raspberry tea. good to know there is another place without time change..i am always threatening to move to Arizona because they are the only state without time change, now if i could stand the cold, i could move up north with you

Susan McShannon-Monteith said...

I see the snow was headed your way... hopefully you were lightly effected.
The soup sure looks good, it warms the body and the soul.
Enjoy!

Carolynn Anctil said...

That last one is bigger than you think! Seriously! I'm loving that part about my new home.

Stay warm, my friend!

Katy Noelle said...

Oh, Cat! Deep comfort, indeed! Love it!! =) Simple pleasures are the best - yes, they are! ;)

Wishing you joy in the cozy - considering the weather outside is frightful! =)

xxo

Katy Noelle said...

Oh, dangit! I just realized that I've been whistling 'Let it snow! Let it snow! Let it snow!' for the past ten minutes. (Head clunks on desk) That's just wrong! ;)

Katy Noelle said...

Oh!! Oh, no!! I just caught myself whistling it again! =O Oh, noooooo....

Alice Marie said...

Sounds like you've got it made! Enjoy your day.

Pantherka said...

The chicken soup looks superbly :-)
Greetings.

Nancy said...

The tea and pot of soup look delicious..and aren't you blessed not to have to deal with daylight savings time...It's dark outside here and I am trying to decide what I am going to do until bedtime....I guess I could go make a pot of soup; yours looks so good..

Susan said...

Ah bless you dear friend!

PS: Can I come over for dinner? That looks really good!

Jen @ Muddy Boot Dreams said...

I'm envious of you not having to go through the time change, wondering why we do anyways?

Boots isn't happy about dinner being a hour late, and breakie, and lunch...

Love the idea of that tea, and the soup.

Jen

Michael Manning said...

Hi Catherine: I believe Arizona is the only state where we don't change the clocks. That makes for some confusing telephone calls from friends across the miles!

sharon said...

mmm mmmm tea and homemade soup. Love the Autumn nights!

troutbirder said...

Yes I must say I do. Once. In Honfleur France in a large black pot. I had promise Mrs. T a trip upon here retirement and there we were dining on "cockles"....:

SweetMarie said...
