Happy Tuesday to ya! I’m just popping in here quickly so no one thinks I’ve gone away forever. Not much new is going on around here. I got back on track with my eating and exercise, though. Let’s just say that my holiday eating indiscretions lasted well into March……
I’ve been enjoying the weather. I’m not quite ready for winter to be over yet, so I’m enjoying the warm days interspersed with the cold ones. Makes life interesting. I’m thinking about my garden now, though. I never cleaned it up from last year. I’d like to get out there this weekend and do that so that I can plant some lettuce. The rabbits around here will probably thank me.
Work has been fairly busy. I haven’t gotten any new cookie orders lately, but I want to make some new spring cookies to share with friends. I am waiting for the arrival of the latest book I’m reviewing. In the meantime I’m reading about three other books; I always have multiple books going on at the same time.
I am really looking forward to this weekend. My sister and I are going to see Tobymac and Mandisa in concert on Friday and spending the night at a hotel. My niece and her friend are going too. It’s going to be a good time. My sister and I also have tickets to see Matthew West in May. It will just be the two of us for that, and we are hoping to make it a full weekend for just the two of us girls. My sister is moving to Florida in July and we are cramming in as much time together as we can before then. Even though she only lives an hour away now, we really didn’t see each other that much, although we are close and text and email fairly frequently. Now that she’s moving away there feels like there is this urgency to spend time together. Weird, huh?!
Sitting out on the deck with my coffee this morning I was treated to the local owl hooting good morning. We have two owls that have lived around here for a few years now and it’s always a treat to hear them. The owls hoot while it’s still dark, then around sunrise the birds start. Usually a cardinal is the first one to sing in the morning, but this past week it has been a robin who has started first. Guess spring is on the way!
Well, that’s about it for my short update. I just finished on the treadmill and took a break to write this. Now I’m off to work and to make spaghetti sauce in the crockpot for dinner tonight. I’m going to leave you with a picture of the sunrise I took a couple of mornings ago. I took the picture standing on my front step. I hope everyone has a wonderful Tuesday
