Mid-Week Already !

Goodness me it's Wednesday already and also the 15th of January - we are half way through the first month of 2020! I don't know about you, but I haven't yet made a mistake about writing, or typing, the year - I think the reason maybe that 2020 just has a lovely ring to it - and it's so balanced!

For mid-week I thought I'd share these with you
First some winter red and pink roses

Second a beautiful winters day

Third a tasty low carb soup
Creamy Broccoli and Leek Soup

All lovely photos, but I don't think you can beat children getting some fresh air on a beach in the winter sunshine.

Hello Jan, strange you should mention that - I too have had no problem remembering to write 2020 a few times now, usually I dither around for a few months into a new year ;D)
A beautiful bouquet of roses, oh those colours.
Love the happy beach moments and, even in our warmer weather currently, I'm thinking of trying the soup - yum, an excess of vegies atm so I'm thinking our zucchinis could also be added!
Cheers xx

Of the three - only the soup is edible. So I prefer that.

God bless.

Beautiful photos, Jan. I especially love the one of your Grand kids on the beach, so precious. The Creamy Broccoli and Leek Soup looks temptingly delicious. Makes me wish I had a bowl right now. Yours is making me hungry.

Wishing you a wonderful Thursday!

The flowers are beautiful and I recall the the syndrome SAD that you wrote about before and visited the link and re read.

Iris Flavia said...

Oh, I love the beach photo!
And the soup would be perfect when coming home after such a visit (not sure about the leek, though, and what can ever beat your Brussels Sprouts soup?!).

Natalia said...

Yum, the soup looks so good and delicious! I would love to live by the beach ☺
