Sunday night at home....

 This is a picture of my backyard, the first day of spring, 2006.  They were predicting snow for today too, but thankfully, it didn't materialize.  Yippee !!!!!!


~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~


  WHEW!  This week is finally over. It was long and packed full to the hilt. It was a good week...but it pretty much used me up.  Today was long-left the house around 11 to stop at the Walcrap and pick up snacks and rice milk...that latter for the Irishman and the former for the workshop.  Met hubby for lunch at 1 and went off to the District Mtg. at 2. When it was over, I set up for the workshop. It was a dismal day...raining and cold. Light turnout for the meetings...only a dozen for the workshop, so went to Plan B. Plan B was: IN the event of a small turnout, we had just a round robin sharing session instead of the panel.  It was actually quite nice and everyone shared a lot of ES&H...so, all's well that ends well.


  Didn't get home until after 6 PM...luckily I had the forethought to put a pork roast in the crockpot this morning.  Put some red potatoes and carrots and onion in with it and it cooked to perfection while we were gone.  SO supper was pretty much ready when we walked in the door.Good thing-I was starved! lol


  I made iced tea the other day, and when I poured a glass of it tonight and took a drink, I was momentarily disturbed at the taste of it. It wasn't bad...just different.  I had forgotten that I made it with 3 Earl Grey teabags thrown into the mix...Bergamot is one of those flavors that tastes like nothing else you can identify...I feel the Altzheimers slipping over me...I love Earl Grey tea and I especially love Earl Grey green tea. I am a big tea drinker...for being a coffee drinker. I adore Lapsong Souchong. Rooiboos is one of my favorites. I love most herb teas. I have peppermint teas and spearmint teas that I have grown and dried myself.  There's just something about a nice cup of tea in the evening that does something for me that nothing else can.


  I have a tea pot collection. I rarely use pots, because I am usually making tea just for myself. But I have a lovely collection, many with sentimental value, and a few that are actually quite valuable.  I am not sure how that collection got started, but it sits proudly above my kitchen cabinets, gathering dust.  lol


  I'm heading to bed soon. It's a chilly night and all my chores are done and that big sleigh bed with the beautiful quilts on it is calling my name. Not to mention my personal Irish heatmaster...lol


   Stay warm and dry, my friends. I'm reading all over the news of flooding and more cold...but spring is almost here. My neighbors daffodils and crocus are up and flowering...I need to go out and check the forsythia bushes...not tonight though....lol



    Namaste.

Trying to imagine such a beautiful sight--snow on first Spring day...and in YOUR back yard!!!

What a week it has been--what a rare mood I'm in...me too. Actually I am glad to see Monday--I get to do some things *I* want to do! (Well, that is pretty much every day, I guess.)

YOU are a busy Peep, Annie, let's STAY that way. I would like to one day DIE "busy"...know what I mean?

PEACE

Hey I go to District meetings as a GSR also, ours is the last Sunday of the month.

I don't know why I love to read about your day, but I do. And I am continually impressed with how much you accomplish. What is ES&H?

Glad to see things are all good on the Prairie.

I deleted my Facebook account this morning. Too many real strange things in my inbox got me worried.

Love always.

So glad the meeting turned out just the way it was supposed to, and that you were ready to go with the flow depending on how many people turned out.
