    I was helping my mum-in-law move something today, and we put it out on her back porch, and she looked around and said "Can you tell I haven't been out here in months?" and I replied, "Well, today is the first day of spring, but also the first day it has really been nice enough to want to even open that door! Nice when those two days coincide - it does not happen often around here!

    Barbecue chicken please! With a side of asparagus!

    Let's see.....first day of spring. That must explain the gale force winds and snow flying sideways.

    It's snowing, blowing and cold here today and should continue off and on for the next week! Could use a hot tea to warm up.

    It was sooooo windy today, I thought, "Yup, this is March for sure! A bit colder than normal, but March nonetheless." The found is at that stage where jus about the top half inch or saw thaws in the sun, but everything below is still frozen solid, so I walk flat-footed on the "grass" so I don't end up slipping in the mud I know it is disguising!

    The kind of weather where Charlie Brown would try flying a kite, and it would get eaten by a tree every time.

    I think I may have spoked too soon?

    BBQ chicken and asparagus.

    I went to the store today and saw bunches of asparagus for 4.59 a pound!

    If you put some olive oil on, grill them and finish them up with some lemon pepper?

    ----------------

    I'll try to get some good weather out to everyone.

    Done?

    Very spring-like warm weather today - 55 degrees F, but I know by Monday it is supposed to be back to 29, so am enjoying it while I can!

    Chai and - let's see, I have 4 different kinds of chai to offer, blueberry tea, and gingerbread tea, as well as normal black tea if anyone want to share! It was bright and just slightly chilly today, but supposed to be cold again tomorrow. And I'll keep the kettle on, there's also cocoa that could be had as well, and some cornbread and ham if anyone's interested!

    I think I want to cook up some beef and barley soup.

    (I almost wrote 'barely') that and some rye bread and lot's of butter.

    More hot water.........On saturday, It was a beautiful day and today it's about 20 degrees colder.

    When it gets warmer I won't complain about the heat..

    We will hold you to that promise, Richard!

    P.S. (No apostrophe is necessary in "lots of butter")

    When I woke up today, the bananas I had that just had a couple small freckle yesterday were almost 3/4 brown - so perfect for banana bread. They are now peeled and in the freezer, awaiting one more compatriot, then we can all have some banana bread!

    I'll go for the BB.....


    My apostrophy
    does atrophy
    I'll have to see
    Where it will be
    Up in a tree
    on a levee
    With a bee
    Or maybe....Gee!
    on a tee
    that does scare me
    but they are free
    to roam a city
    but it ain't pretty
    When I stick them where they don't belong?
