Looks like Fall is not too far away as the Dogwood leaves are starting to edge with crimson and the sun is slanting from a different angle. I think I recall that the talking heads have stated on several occasion that this was the warmest winter ever in the 48 contiguous States. Ever. I already have mentioned that my daffodils were up and BLOOMING by January 27th. That's just not right. The TVA, aka Tennessee Valley Authority complained they lost money because the heating season was so short and sparse heating days evenwhen it did chill down some. They complain when the usage is high..they complain when it's low. Must be those executives complaining who are getting a few less millions in bonuses at our expense-- meaning rate changes.
Thanks for the comments on the last post. I like messing with the pictures. You can't see how ancient I am when I do those layering things. Smart woman.
I am going to try a new recipe tomorrow when the oldest comes to see me. It's called Spanish Chicken and it's one of the McCormick spices recipes. I hope it's good. I'll let you know and tell you so you can try it too. It wants 1 1/2 lbs chicken breasts, spices, diced tomatoes, onion, julienned red bell pepper among other things. Oh-- and chicken broth. I bought the red pepper and broth after working out yesterday so I'm ready. One browns the chicken first, removes it from the pan and then sautes the onion and red bell pepper, adds the spices, a little flour, the tomatoes, whatever and simmer for a while. There's a bit more to it..I'm just relying on memory too early in the morning. :-)
Nellie, I have more or less maintained that new-to-me length of hair. It's shoulder length in front but a bit longer in the back. I can make a creditable low pony tail. :-)
I need to get ready, grab the camera and head out. I wish I could find swans like Dianne does where she lives. She has the most beautiful pictures of the swan families..babies and parents that I have ever seen.
This is a Magnolia Grandiflora. HUGE tree and plate sized blossoms many times when they open fully. I took this up the street.
Time to get cracking and get ready for the day. I have been in here at the computer helping Katie read her bloggie and making comments. I need to wash my face and assume my disguise. XXOO
