Good Morning Everyone,
How are you on this fine Friday morning? I do have a conference call at 11 this morning, but I'm still considering that the weekend has started. And that pleases me immensely.
Errands were run yesterday, but no cleaning was accomplished. One must have priorities and cleaning is not at the top of the list for me. I will, however, try to do a little today. Sheets and towels do not get washed by themselves...they require a bit of help. Likewise, floors and toilets don't scrub themselves...sadly...
But, our temperatures actually got up to 60 degrees yesterday and Fletch and I sat out on the patio with beverages in the late afternoon. We only lasted about 40 minutes, but we had not sat out since early Fall, so even a short time was a welcome change. Mabel joined us for a little bit.
She rolled around on the patio a bit and then dashed off and ran up the apple tree.
That girl loves to run and climb. Before we got too chilly, Fletch and I did notice a few signs of Spring. Right at the edge of the patio we have some bulbs coming up:
And then many, many more are coming up around the base of the apple tree:
What a welcome sight! Fletch pointed out the other day that our lilac is budded (leaf buds, not flower buds yet). We have often had rather large snows in February and even in March, but these green signs are so nice to see.
Last night I tried a new (to me) recipe for Black Bean and Avocado Enchiladas and they were delicious! Mine, of course look like blobs (my tortilla wraps were on the small side) rather than nicely rolled enchiladas.
I used the included recipe for enchilada sauce, but next time I would just use canned sauce. There was more filling than I could put in the tortillas, but I think that would be good just scooped up with tortilla chips (which might be lunch today!).
Any plans for the weekend? I'll be meeting up with Dee tomorrow morning for a therapy session - plenty of sipping and chatting and a bit of knitting. I also want to get over the C&M's to water the houseplants and (hopefully) drop off a box or two of books that have been living in our house for a long, long time. I'll walk around their yard and see if I can find signs of Spring there!
