for today...

outside my window... 49F-18F clear *lovely*
tomorrow 22F-11F snow showers *sigh*
i am thinking... the sun is shining, the snow is melting, but spring has not yet sprung
i am thankful for... a new mailbox, as the snowplough hit it yet again 
i am wearing... black jeans, a thermal shirt & my hiking boots
i am going... out to clean up the tree branch debris, 
the remains of Winter Storm Stella last week
i am currently reading...  Festive Tarts by Sylvia Thompson
i am hoping... to try a new Lemon Curd recipe today 
on my mind... gas @ $2.24/gallon in NY, milk @ $2.15/gallon in NY, sugar @ $1.89/4 lb
pondering these words... "It's spring fever.  That's what the name of it is.  
And when you've got it, you want---oh you don't quite know what it is you do want,
 but it just fairly makes your heart ache, you want it so!"
~ Mark Twain ~
from the kitchen... asparagus fritatta
around the house... spring cleaning begins
one of my favorite things...  signs of Spring, the robins are singing their sweet, sweet song
i'm creating... a new blog header & facebook cover completed and posted
a few plans for the week...  a trip to my doctor's office in Lawrenceville, PA
and catching up on the March Challenges @ The Lilypad
