Quote Blue 501: Good morning. A shoutout to our missing friends: Lucy, Wombie, CM-still in Florida, and others who do not feel like posting for a while.
We had snow. The whole yard is swamped. At least I have a paved driveway on my side so the cars do not sink into the morass. And V's house is on higher ground. When we have a real gully washer, it flows from the garage to the ditches like a trout stream, carrying pebbles with it.
How about a hearty breakfast? Buttermilk pancakes with blueberries this morning, a smidgen of bacon (for those who indulge), soy sausage (for those who do not), D'Anjou pears, sliced & slathered with sour cream & cinnamon. Piping hot Ugandan Bugilu coffee & a pot of Czar Nicholas II tea. I would like to go back to bed now but I need to go tend to the cats for my daughter & deal with more boxes of "stuff". Have a good day. Hope your weather, wherever you are, is pleasant.
We have everything the baby will need now, including bright colored "wipes" of cotton flannel for the baby's tiny bottom. (Or so we think. Every baby needs a Pirate onesie). He does still need a warm little hat. He has fleecy little suits with hoods but she feels he might get in trouble with a hood, even though she will be sitting in the back seat beside him all the way home. She mentioned that he might scream all the way home. He will only be about 6 hours old when he makes that trip. Should I put some ear plugs in my purse? My ears actually hurt with any kind of high pitched noise.
Yum!! pancakes and bacon...Wonderful Sat morning breakfast...Thanks, Blue. We had some snow here at the beach, too. Just a few inches, but it makes everything look so beautiful..We have a shell driveway, so have to be careful when and if we shovel. Didn't this time....just shoveled the walkways to the front and back doors.
It's been rather quiet here, the way I like it.....Went to our favorite French Bistro for a late lunch the other day, rahter quiet there too, got our favorite cushy seats by the window. At the house I have been randomly clearing out closets and drawers. Got a box of stuff to donate to the local church and the Captain took 2 loads to the dump....I have to keep going.....
Reading a new book, Anil's Ghost by Michael Ondaatje, about Sri Lanka...I've just started it, but it seems interesting....a combination of modern times and human rights intertwined with archeology.
Blue, hope things are ready, set, go for the baby!!!
