It's Snowing!!! (Again!)





Yesterday friends squeezed in a fast taco salad lunch on a bitterly cold day. Afterwards I fetched bread and milk like a hundred others were doing since the forecast was another wintry mix weekend.
So the 3-5 inches falling now are not a surprise. We are warm...have food...have books...it is patience I am short on!

My lemon tree is dying....I long to plant some hollyhocks....I have about fifteen submissions out waiting for an answer...and even the dog is ansty! I feel like a slug rolled over on itself becuase I'm not moving--except to put food on the table. Today started with cheese omlet, sourdough toast, and wonderful Irish Breakfast tea. Lunch was pork roast and fruit salad followed by sour cream/raisin pie, and butter rum tea.

Tomorrow's first of March forecast is for sleet on top of the snow in the late afternoon followed by more snow. Then Tuesday thunderstorms and 60 degrees followed by--yep, more cold! Can't complain as we still have had it better than friends in the East. I have pototoes and onions with a myriad of other vegetables to stretch today's roast into soup. Apricots are cut for oatmeal fruit cookies. I'm about to finish the John Wayne bio and four more books arrived in the mail so I am ready.

If you don't hear from me in a few more days, send help as we are food-filled like roly poly clowns and/or  frozen beyond help!

Warm and with books sounds like a plus.
Stay safe - and enjoy your enforced leisure as much as you can.

Safe, warm, butter rum tea and pie? Can I come for lunch? Colorado doesn't get as much snow as people think, except this year, and we've been snowed in three times in the past 8 days! And we shouldn't even complain because our rooflines are collapsing and we're not worried about flooding when all our snow melts, like in so many places.
Stay safe and warm, Claudia, and enjoy all your books!
Fingers crossed for very positive replies on your submissions!

Soup and a good book sounds good to me.

Books and food and tea and a cuddle-bun of a dog to nap with. What more could a person ask for during a winter snowstorm...

I feel the same way...anxious and antsy and eating too well. I have a stack of books, but too ehhh to concentrate. Hope you hear soon on your submissions.

Sounds wonderful to me. How is DH taking it?

We came home from church and I warmed up some leftover corn chowder (to which I added some potatoes and turkey sausage to be sure to have enough)...

Snowing HERE, too. I'm so ready to be done with it!

I ♥ your description -"a slug rolled over on itself". Made me smile a BIG smile. I needed that!

You've gone and made me hungry. Meals at your house sound delicious. :) Stay warm and dry, my friend! Spring is just around the bend!

Winter has overstayed it's welcome, as far as I'm concerned. Glad you're keeping busy 15 submissions--I'm impressed. I need to follow your example.
Stay warm!

Claudia--
I'll try again here. I don't know what's wrong, but I've tried twice to post a comment here, and twice to post one on the John Wayne post. Both posts are so good, and my comments were long and specific, but I don't know what went wrong.
