Good idea Katie. I need some company today. Having a terrible time with anxiety today. Have meds but just don't want to take any.

Well, I'm glad I decided to drop in. Been a pretty decent day in Kentucky today. Our high temp was 75 degrees. I opened as many doors as I could to let in the fresh air. Our inside kitties sat at the doors watching outside "TV." Lots of little heads in a row and tails swishing away as the programs changed. I think they watched a lot of the "birdie" channel.

Glorious day. Sunny, lots of puffy white clouds in a robin's egg blue sky. I can see green "growies" popping up in our yard. They are emerging so quickly I can almost hear them growing.

My youngest brother who lives about an hour south of us already has crocus and daffodils blooming. It won't be long before we see lots of daffodils along the fence rows in the countryside here, especially in very sunny spots.

Just ticking the days off until it's officially spring and I can get back into shorts and flip-flops.

Here, I'll share some of our York Peppermint Patty Brownies I made this morning. A new recipe I tried but, of course, I had to tinker with it. Yum! Chocolate and mint. The smell was so wonderful as they baked it almost drove me out of the kitchen. Well, it was either leave the kitchen or eat the door off the oven.

Hi Marge,

I'm new to the neighborhood. Thought I'd stop by to tell you that my prayers are with you and I'd be honored if you would allow me to join you at your table.

I brought Banana Bread!

Hi Marge,
thought I'd stop by for a minute and say hi..At last, spring is just around the corner..All the almond trees are in bloom here and it is so heart warming..I'm looking forward to summer and using my new kitchen and best of all having the little ones here every now and again. I so miss watching them as I use to...Have been really into baking with my new oven..Would you like some peanut butter cookies? How about some nice mint tea. Well, time to check all the doors and turn off some of the lights...See you tomorrow.

kades

Best wishes, Dove. I hope the support of all your virtual-but-real friends has eased your burdens. We all need to belong, and hopefully your adopted DC family gives you another home away from home.

Be well and be happy. We only get one pass for this crazy ride.

Hi, Marge (bending over to give a big hug), it's nice to see you today. How's your day been today? We had a nice, but quiet one. Are you ready for spring? I can't wait to see things leafing out and blooming. Love the new chance the world gets every spring.
