A little of bit of this and that

Perhaps it was the arrival of more snow this weekend, or last night’s season finale of Downton Abbey, but today’s post is a mix-up, a little bit of this and that.

1// I recently discovered that the Berenstain Bears have their very own Twitter feed, and apparently, they liked last week’s Red Shutters post:

2// In other Twitter news, I’ve been invited to a Twitter party! It’s my first, and I’m passing along the details in case this is your kind of thing.

Interestingly, my Dad, many years ago, worked at Honeywell. The people extending the invite didn’t know this connection, of course. Life is funny that way.
3// I’ve been cooking more lately, and I’ve found three recipes that are now officially on our family’s “make again, please, Mama” list. I’m passing them along in case you, too, are looking for easy, delicious dishes for your family.
Hope your week is snow shoveling free!
Winter is the time for comfort, for good food and warmth, 
for the touch of a friendly hand and for a talk beside the fire: it is the time for home.
