for today

for today...

outside my window... 34F/snow
Winter Storm Watch from 12pm Thu to 12am Sat
expect 8-12 inches & 40-50mph winds *argh*
i am thinking... the maple trees have been tapped ... there will be syrup soon :)
i am thankful for... Daylight Saving Time
i am wearing... blue jeans, thermal shirt & Birkenstocks
i am going... nowhere until it stops snowin' & blowin'
i am currently reading... the March edition of "Martha Stewart Living"
i am hoping...  the Nor'Easter this weekend is the last of winter weather
on my mind... gas @ $2.85/gallon, milk @ $2.15/gallon, butter @ $2.88/lb
pondering these words... "Spring is when you feel like whistling, even with a shoe full of slush."
~ Doug Larson ~
from the kitchen... posole, yellow rice & johnnycake
around the house... small flowerpots of shamrocks
one of my favorite things... corned beef/cabbage & Irish soda bread on St. Patrick's Day
i'm creating... the March Challenges @ The Lilypad
and a spring blog header/fb timeline cover
a few plans for the weekend...  shovel snow *sigh*
from my lens:
* PA maple syrup, drop by precious drop *
