Spring


Seven days ago the temperature was 80 degrees. Alas today it is below freezing but there is still beauty.

Peace

There is a time in the night when all is at peace. The world is silent. Nothing stirs, there is no sound. It is a time of rest.

Lord, bid war's trumpet cease;
Fold the whole earth in peace.
~Oliver Wendell Holmes

Spring


Spring has sprung here. Today I mowed but only about an acre, started tilling the garden and discovered a new fun play toy. The best part is it is free!

I love to read but I also love to knit. I have always had problem knitting while reading. Balancing book, knitting directions, yarn and needle was just beyond my capacity. So I discovered Kindle for my PC and since I have a 13" laptop I can now read books and knit at the same time.

The best part is that most of the great classics are free and so is the Kindle app.

I love reading the classics. This is a very good spring indeed.

Water


Water in it's mild forms is gentle, comforting & beautiful. When it becomes vicious it is horrific. Please remember the people of Japan. Most if the deaths are not from the earthquake it was the tsunami. They had 20 to 30 minutes from the time of the hardest earthquake to the tsunami to get to the highest point nearby.

Prayers for the people of Japan.

Stop the World.


Today started out with me being, literally, dizzy. Since my Meniere's disease has decided to flare I have been riding a tilt-a-wheel almost every day. Not getting much done. This to shall pass.

Spring is almost here. We change time next weekend. Now if we can get rid of this cold raw weather. I am ready for the red bud and dogwood to bloom. The grass to green and the trees to leaf out.

I love spring.

Ahh Saturday


Saturday has turned into food day.

Made yogurt it won't be ready until tonight or tomorrow. Vegetables ready to go into the oven for roasting. Love roasted veggies. They can be eaten as they are or in a stew or blended down into a mole for burritos.

Next is to do the refried beans and rice. Now off to make bread and then maybe some orange & yogurt "ice cream".

Good eats the rest of the weeks!

I know


I know that I didn't blog yesterday. Yesterday's schedule was up early and out the door. Not home until dinner time. I had a great time all day. Just no time to blog. So I will forgive myself and go on.

Today made Lemon Drops cookies and had my hair cut. I have the absolute best young lady who cuts my hair. She is my youngest daughters bestest friend, great mom., wife & a so kind.

So tonight I need to knit. Which I may do. Then again I may not, haven't decided yet.

It is about time!


I am making some changes in this blog and my life.
1) I am going to blog every day except when I have no internet connection.
2) I am going to get rid of some more of the clutter in my life.
3) I am going to stop making so many plan and go with the flow more.
4) I am going to stop feeling guilty about doing nothing.
5) I will stop now because I am getting bored.

Tomorrow on to doctors and a lovely day with one of my girls.
Now back to Tasty Kitchen.I love a good recipe and they have many.
