Making It All Better

The weather can’t seem to make up its’ mind.

Taking advantage of a quiet Sunday home, I managed to get some pedestrian household chores out of the way and spend quality time with Kasia.

So, when in doubt, and the throws are on when you are on the sofa, well,there’s one thing screaming for dinner….CHICKEN SOUP.

I picked up some Spaetzle, which I am more used to seeing in Pennsylvania Dutch cooking when I used to be in Reading Terminal. You really don’t see them that much here, so I thought they’d give the soup a little more chew,so it would help fill you up.

As I type this, the aroma smells awesome. Can’t wait until it’s ready.

Another Monday

We celebrated my Mother-in-law’s birthday twice within the past week. She turned 100 on Thanksgiving day. It was a good time,especially since we went through some health scares in the summer. It definitely made her birthday a celebration.

So here I sit on Cyber-Monday, enjoying the peace and quiet. It is especially quiet now, as we had a good soaking of rain today.

Here’s hoping you have a good week, my friends, and that the weather is treating you well.

In the Meanwhile….

I have cleared my back deck of blooms, in anticipation of whatever comes north from Florence. I just hate to waste pretty blossoms to torrents of rain.

The rest of my deck resembles a spinach or romaine patch. Granted, summer is still here for another ten days, but the overcast weather, drizzle and rain lets you know fall is on its’ way.

My mother-in-law and sister-in-law are due down here for a visit. I am hoping the weather holds and an enjoyable time is had for all.

Hot,Hot,Hot

You probably think the weather here is nice….

Sure, if you like humidity at the major urban congested city level.

My hydrangea is hanging in by a wing and a prayer. Some of the other flowers look as if they need a trip to ICU.We had two nice nights of comfortable sleeping. Now, as of 4:45pm, the humidity could be a zillion, for all Kasia and I care.

Come on October!

Keep it Coming…

It would appear that they are looking for yet another Nor’easter coming my way.

If memory serves you correctly, yes you did see the above picture in a prior post, dealing with the current Nor’easter.We aren’t proud, either: we’d take snow.

I think it was last winter when my Zush was still with us that was when we had some snow. It’s a case of anything to keep the off-season, the off season.***chuckling***

Hope springs eternal!

Back Up

I had been down for a little bit, but now that I am a little better, and take daily Zircam, guess who’s going to work tomorrow? You’ve got it: me!

I have to admit that I enjoyed being around while the weather has been spring-like.Tomorrow, of
course, the front is due to come through and I’ll be with the kids.I have to admit I miss when I am not in on a regular basis, but on the other hand, working during the Titanic of Flu seasons, well, sometimes I was happy to hide out here.

Remember your umbrellas, gang, and stay dry!

Happy St. Valentine’s Day

It’s St. Valentine’s day and I am hoping all of you had a wonderful day and great evening. Kasia and I are here and we are a little tired, as the weather was pretty good today, so we gals did over a mile walking today.

Jim has to work tonight but we will make up St.Valentine’s day on his day off.Technically,though, every day is St.Valentine’s day when you are married.
