For Today - April 3, 2010 - Saturday
Outside My Window . . . It's cool & damp with a list misty fog. It drizzled during the night & I can hear the rain dripping on the leaves. It was great weather for sleeping in late.
I am hearing. . . The birds are waking up and chirping, & singing & calling to one another...in stereo. From one side of the house to the other, a the birds are calling one another. I'm also hearing the birds nibbling the birdseed from the feeder outside the window.
In the far distance a gun shot. Back behind the cabin a cow mooing & a car coming up the side road.
I Am Wearing. . . khaki cargo pants & turquoise t-shirt, a brown suede-like jacket & a neck scarf.
I Am Thinking. . . . I may have stumbled upon my Aunt Leona's, whom I always called Aunt Loney, sugar cookie recipe. Peggy M., from church, makes the BEST teacake cookies that tastes an awful lot like Aunt L's sugar cookies. I know the brain can't accurately remember color, but it does accurately recall smells. I don't know about taste - do we remember it exactly? I'll ask mama tomorrow what she thinks about the taste & texture of Peggy's teacake cookie.
I am wondering . . . If KI & his family will be able to come tomorrow. They had twin boys delivered by c-section 8 days ago...they may do better staying at home. Maybe we can just deliver an Easter meal to their home?
I Am Grateful. . . That Amanda is feeling so much better. I really thought I'd be taking her back to the doctor on Monday...but she was feeling better yesterday. You can tell just by looking at her...there wasn't that look of pain in her eyes.
From the kitchen . . . The smell of coffee. I usually drink hot tea but I'm planning to make red-eye gravy to go with tomorrow's ham & it calls for coffee! I was born & raised in Texas, but don't know I've every eaten red-eye gravy. I'll let you know how it turns out.
I am going . . . to make the Pioneer Woman's decadent mashed potatoes for tomorrow. She points out they're easy to reheat so I'll just make them today! And her Pineapple Upside-Down cake. . . I like doing as much ahead of time that I can!
I am reading . . . Nada
I am hoping . . . I get much done today.
Around the house . . . The house is covered with a fine yellow dust-like substance, but it's not really dust. It's pollen. Lots of it. More than I remember every seeing before. Of course I never lived in the trees before, either! The funny thing about it is this: my husband's allergies & sinuses have not been at all bothering him! Maybe a little was a bother but a lot is a homeopathic type of remedy? :)
One of my favorite things . . . Today.
Something you may not know about me . . . I can't think of a single thing you might not know about me! So if you want to know something - - - you'll have to ask!
Today's photo Peggy M's teacake cookies. Yes, they are yummy!
