    Thursday's #515: One week closer

    To Spring, drivers pressing on the loud pedal, and gardening beginning!

    Seed catalogs fill the mailbox, and thoughts turn to what's going in the garden this year?

    In the meantime, I'm going to sit down with some catalogs at the bar and have myself an Irish coffee with a Flexoril chaser.

    Here's to the days getting longer!

    I agree with LH, here's to the days getting longer! LH, I will drink with you; but i'm just drinking decaf coffee without the Irish part or the chaser. Hi, Lady :love

    I heard on the news that even though it's winter, we are still way behind on rainfall and that it takes almost 8 inches of snow to equal an inch of rain. We're supposed to get some rain overnight, though. Maybe snow over the weekend.
    Yikes! I've been Boo'd ... right off of the stage!
    Aaahh, I have been defrosted! Thank you, Bonny and Asiel!
    Brrrr, I've been Frosted! Thank you, Asiel and Pomtzu!

    I think we can scrape up some decaf.

    Rain? Nah.....got enough, thanks.....but we still have snow melting from the storm last week, and get a nice coating of lake effects flurries on a regular basis.

    Oops....

    Don't forget to go vote for the monopoly piece that gets out of jail!

    One piece out of the current set is going to be retired, and they're going to add a new piece. Right now it looks like Scottie is safe, but go vote!

    Hey Karen, if you can figure a way to serve mandarin oranges without the tea part, I'm first in line for some. This darn cold has me craving fruit, big time. At least I don't have the flu like I suspected, but my head still feels like it's full of cotton candy, and there's that elephant sitting on my chest too. We need an extended cold spell to kill off all these germs floating around - before the Spring pollen blossoms and tortures us.

    How about some warm vanilla cake with mandarin oranges baked in? Then glazed with confectioner's sugar and orange juice glaze, served nice and warm - would that do it for ya?

    Oh my goodness - YES! That sounds lovely! I've been battling the creeping crud myself, thought I was safe, but went to choir practice tonight and the high notes? Not pretty...

    I crashed early last night, so I missed your cake offer, Karen. If it still stands, I'm all for some - sounds delish!

    I was going to have a banana on my cereal this morning, but the bananas were way beyond that point. So now there is a banana bread baking in the oven. Should be ready in about an hour if anyone would care to share some with me. And coffee - I need coffee!!!

    Happy Friday and almost weekend, everyone.

    I have had a hankering for some lima beans with ham and a crusty bread to sop up the broth with.


    Anyone?

    Ham? Check.

    Crusty bread? Check.

    The lima beans you can have for yourself. They're the one "vegetable" I refuse to touch since childhood.
