Helpful friends on this joyful Saturday morning are my 35 year old crock pot (her name is Poke Along) and the bread maker I got for Christmas. Clam chowder is chugging along in Poke Along and cinnamon bread is rising in Shirley (remember? I named her Shirley-Girl).
As I was digging in a junk drawer, I found my tea ball! Brad and April gave me this Earl Grey Supreme and I had not tried it. Brown Betty said, "Come on, Pom Pom! Let's brew up some Earl Grey!" She refused to take her cozy dress off (it's cold) even while we brewed.
Here is your cup of tea! Oh! Let me put some cream and sugar in it.
I think I went a bit overboard on the cream. Sorry to treat you like a child and cream up your tea so much. It was growing cold, so I drank it. It was scrumptious.
We're just starting the pink-sky mornings here in Colorado! I feel sure the buds are forming on the maples.
Iris are popping up in the front garden, too!
Look at the peony promises!
I'm enchanted by the rosy glow of this pretty tree. I think she's almost ready to deck herself out in leaves!
Thank you for your prayers for my dad. He's healing up in the therapy facility. My sweet sister is there providing her special brand of support. My mother is so strong and cheerful. I do love cheerful people. I think cheerful people are the smartest ones.
We're going to Birdie's play today! Yay! On Monday we are going to the Grandparent Tea at Miss Bug's school. Tonight Samantha and Lizzy are coming over. I'll get to hold Lizzy and let me tell you, she smells SO good. At the end of May, we get all four of our Ft. Collins Grands for the whole weekend. YAY!
I wish you could join us for clam chowder and cinnamon bread.
Can you tell me about YOUR electric friends?
