There are many things I miss, most of all being able to visit with our son and his partner. Having said that, there are things about staying safe at home that I am enjoying. I can confidently say I’m feeling happy at home. However, I am seriously looking forward to being able to visit the ones we love. And to getting my hair done – but that’s way down on the list compared to the former!
Whether your blog posts are old or new, as long as they are about things that feed the soul, they are welcome here at The Hearth and Soul Link Party. Things that feed the soul may include (but are not limited to) recipes, decorating, crafts, family, home, DIY, organization, travel, book reviews, the arts and self improvement.
What’s Been Happening
I’ve been doing some online networking this week, as well as working hard on the blog.
We’ve had some beautiful weather, and I’ve been enjoying being able to work outside in our garden. That has certainly helped me be happy at home.
Being at home so much has given me lots of opportunity to develop new recipes, and to look again at old favourites.
While I love to make this delicious Crab and Shrimp Salad with fresh crab and shrimp, it’s also delicious with canned crab and frozen little shrimps as well. In fact, I discovered last week that it also makes a delicious sandwich filling when you make it with little shrimp. We used rye bread, and topped the ‘salad’ with crisp lettuce. Lunch was a real treat that day!
Thank you all for your support of Hearth and Soul and for sharing your wonderful content. I appreciate you all!
Happy at Home Features
Happy at home features include (from top left, clockwise):-
Be happy at home doing some armchair travelling with Sandra at Dinner at Eight and her post about Spring in The Atlanta Botanical Garden
Miz Helen of Miz Helen’s Country Cottage shared a family recipe for a beautiful Strawberry Skillet Cake, perfect comfort food as strawberries come into season
Being creative is a great way to be happy at home. Kristin of White Arrows Home has an easy project with these Painted TV Trays Made New Again . (Funnily enough, these are the exact TV trays we have at home, and they are a little down at heel, so I may just give this a try!)
If you have got flour and yeast, you must try this Easy No Need Pan Bread from Jean of Delightful Repast
Okay, on with the party!
