February Monthly News

Welcome to the February Edition of Monthly News!
We had mixed reviews from the Groundhogs in regards to the weather. The Canadian groundhogs are sure there will be less of a winter, while the American Groundhog is sure for more.Thankfully I live in Canada.
Valentines Day was sweet. The hubster took a day off work, to treat me like a queen. It was awesome! I was definitely spoiled rotten.
I also was Tagged by Shirley at My Bookshelf. It was fun to Tag others, even if I messed up a bit. Read about it HERE.

#Recipe Minestrone Soup

**Recipe and photo owned by Freda's Voice.


Minestrone soup is one of my favorite soups that my mother-in-law makes, and since moving out of her home and into our own again, I need to figure out what went inside hers so I can make it myself. I'm happy to say I did get it, and the hubster says it is just like hers! That's a compliment!! So here is my rendition of my mother-in-law's soup.

#Win Montana Family Cowboy by Linda Ford (US)

LINDA FORD grew up devouring books and making up stories in her head, often late at night when she couldn't sleep. But she hadn't planned to write. Instead, she dreamed of running an orphanage. In a way, that dream came true. She married, had four homemade children, adopted 10, and lived her dream. She lives on a small ranch in western Alberta, where she can see the mountains every day. She and her husband continue to enjoy their children and grandchildren. Linda also provides care for a paraplegic, double-amputee man. She still finds a great deal of enjoyment and satisfaction in creating imaginary worlds only now she does it on paper, or rather, at the computer.
