Every storm runs out of rain, just like every dark night turns into day.Gary Allan
Winter is for the birds.
Especially this big fellow who “dined” in our backyard two weeks ago, during a snowstorm. When I first noticed him from the dining room window, I thought “that’s a big robin”! I’m not that dumb but we live in the city and rarely see large birds. Especially in the back yard!
I don’t even want to think about what, or rather, who, was his “snack”. I’m keeping my eyes open for the Little Reds!
The wild hawk stood with the down on his beak and stared with his foot on the prey.Lord Alfred Tennyson
There is a time for everything, and a season for every activity under the heavens. Ecclesiastes 3:1

A stumbling-block for the pessimist; a stepping stone to the optimist.
This week, the highly-anticipated mini kitchen renovation began this week. I said “adieu” to the 1980’s faux butcher block countertop and “welcome” to a simple charcoal gray countertop. The “vintage” tiles from 1969 are gone and framing done in preparation for electrical work this week. I’m so excited!
Baking is love made edible. -Unknown
Even though we’re in the midst of renovations, meals still need to be prepared, and I’m scheduled to provide snacks for a ladies’ event on Wednesday, so I’m sneaking in some baking whenever I can!
This afternoon I baked cranberry streusel muffins and orange jack-o-lantern sugar cookies. Of course, I have to enjoy a cup of tea while I’m waiting.

If you don’t think shoes are important, just ask Dorothy or Cinderella.
OK, the challenge wasn’t specifically “Cinderella Shoes” but what girl could resist pulling out her wedding dress (which still fits 23 years later – thank goodness!! ) and some sparkly shoes.
Chocolate is good, but shoes are sugar-free!
If I were to get married again (which I have no plans to ever do again), would I stick with white, or would I dare to be different? Judging on how much I’ve changed since I started my mid-life crisis, I think the answer is “yes”! Maybe…red?
Forget the prince…keep the shoes!
