Even though I am not blogging everyday in reality, my mind is still blogging every day. I take pictures, write the posts in my mind, plan them out. And you did not comment! Scheez.
So, I have pictures to show you on this sunny Sunday. It’s odd to have sunshine on a Sunday as the past couple of months have brought Sunday Snowstorms. Poor Andy doesn’t know what to do with himself, no shoveling. No. Only kidding. He is ecstatic.
(I am currently watching a show on the Duggars. They kind of creep me out)
That is neither here nor there.
First up? A package that came in the mail. Making my miserable little day. (I remember that it was a horrible day) Margene really knows how to make a statement. Yarn that is so great looking and soft, handspun by Margene’s talented little hands. (No picture of that, but it is gorgeous!) (you’ll see it someday made into something special!). Yarn spun by a friend? Can life get any better?
Well, if your name is Mitchell, it can:
Salmon kitty treats. All natural and no junk food in them, Margene was paying attention to their diets. There are chicken flavor too. I have learned that Myron is not much of a snacker. He waits for his food. So they are all for Mitchell. You won’t hear him complain! And there was chocolate. Was there? Yes, I remember chocolate. It is LONG gone of course. I mean, really. Chocolate does not last long.
Thank you, Margene!
And then there are the shrimps. (Skrimps, as Bethany and I call them from an SNL skit) Not just any shrimp but Maine Shrimp, which make an appearance in the fish stores only during the cold months. They are small and sweet and oh so good. The shells slip right off and I sauteed them with olive oil and garlic with a squeeze of lemon juice. They are to die for. I encourage you to try them. Unless you are allergic. Don’t come crying to me if you are allergic.
What is winter without an amaryllis? (Please don’t tell Mitchell that there is a plant hiding in the kitchen. He has not eaten it yet.)
This is the only amaryllis that grew this winter. I usually have a slew of them but somehow I only ended up with this one. I do have another that did not grow at all which sucks but what are you going to do. I’ll enjoy this single bloom for as long as it lasts.
Alas, the laundry needs to be switched. Next time, when I am writing blog posts in my head? I hope that more of you will respond!
