THE LAST DAY OF WINTER


And I am so happy.  Spring is a wonderful time of year.  Everything is coming back to life and the air is warming up.

I am glad our weather is warming up here.  It's supposed to be in the 40s and 50s for the rest of the month.

I spent 7 hours yesterday cleaning the house.  I am feeling so much better about things.  But today I was really worn out and spent most of the afternoon napping.  Well, that's what Sunday afternoons are for.  Back to work on the house tomorrow.

I made two really wonderful dinners last night and tonight.  Yesterday it was lemon chicken, broccoli and cauliflower and Irish Soda bread.  That bread was so good and is gone now.  *sigh*  I wish they sold it all year round.  Tonight I made poached salmon, rice and mixed veggies.  We ate hours ago and I am still full.

Tomorrow I am going to try the next new dish from Shop Rite's meals to go.  It is turkey and rice stuffed Swiss chard.  I'll let you know how it is.  

Joe wasn't able to go to church again today.  I hope he is able to come next week.  We did have three visitors today.  And another new child.  This is so exciting seeing what God is doing in our congregation.

There's really not much to tell you because I slept the day away.  I hope to decorate for Easter this week so I will be showing you those pictures.

YOUTUBE VIDEOS:
We finished another series:  Victorian Farm Christmas.  It was filmed a year after the Victorian Farm series but instead of spending a year there, they spent 5 or 6 months.  It was so interesting.  They begin in the late summer with the hay harvest and end with a wonderful Christmas celebration.  We are on to the next series which I will tell you about soon since there are only four parts to it.

I also watched myself a single video called "BBC's Pompeii The Last Day."  Wow! It was incredible.  The research they did was just unbelievable and it made the whole thing come alive.  Allthemed Docs has done it again.  They always show the best documentaries.

MARCH @ 6 P.M.
Again, no clouds in the sky and so no beautiful sunsets.  But here is a cloudy day yesterday and a sunny day today.

And that's all I have for you today.  Hope you have a good evening.

  1. We had a very nice day but then the rest of the week we're to have rain. Sigh! Yes, tomorrow is the first day of spring! Eventually the tulips will bloom and I can head out to the tulip farm. I'm in need of sleep so I'm headed to fold laundry then to bed. Happy week and stay warm!

  3. Yay for progress and feeling good about that progress...mine got stalled in recent days so I should stop reading blogs and get to work...fifteen minutes at a time. Pinterest has lots of good soda bread recipes. It's an easy bread to bake and so satisfying. Did yours have raisins in it? Sometimes I put craisins in mine.

  4. Happy Spring, Kathy! I enjoyed reading about the dinners you make. They sound so good. The Irish bread I have never tasted. I am glad that you both enjoyed it. Also, happy to hear that you are getting visitors at church. God is sure good!

  7. I am ready for Spring, too, Kathy. Winter begone! Your meals sound delicious. I don't cook like I used to since John no longer eats regular food. Just told someone I missed having pizza once in a while.

    I am going to look for that Pompeii documentary. That has always fascinated me.

    Hope you have a blessed week and I hope Joe feels good enough to go to services next week. I am sure he is missed as much as he misses going. xo Diana
