Today I'm thinking about...
...not taking feeling good for granted! We are all on the mend here. The sheets are washed, the Lysol sprayed, and the door opened to let the fresh...if still yet chilly...air in. I have to tell you, I am so thankful to be cooking and schooling and folding laundry again! Thanks for the kind words and prayers...they were felt and appreciated. : )
I am also thinking about switching gears...from St. Patrick's Day to Easter! They are super close this year, which means we will be saying goodbye to all things green, and pulling out the bunnies and eggs soon. As in tomorrow. But before we do, here is a look at the past week in our country home...
Spring is near...and soon we will be swinging and rocking and sipping drinks out here.
(Instead of rushing out without shoes or a jacket to snap a quick picture before running back inside.)
I couldn't wait to dig out the Easter mugs...this one is just too cute to not use. : )
Sunday morning was the first I felt like eating in awhile...so French Toast it was.
And then it was the night before St. Patrick's Day...and we celebrated with a special bedtime story and snack. Peyton made chocolate chip cookies with green chips. Always buy an extra bag at Christmas, and pick the red ones out. : )
St. Patrick's Day Breakfast was fun...
and everyone has the fruit dip recipe, but just in case you don't...mix 8 oz. cream cheese with 8 oz. marshmallow cream. That's it. : )
My littlest leprechaun and I set the table while the big kids worked...
and our Irish dinner was delicious!!! Simply chop up some red potatoes, some cabbage, an onion, and some bacon. Cover with foil, and bake in a 400 degree oven for an hour or until done. I put it under the broiler for a minute to crisp the bacon too. Then I steamed some carrots and pan fried some kielbasa and we were set!
After dinner, we played some fun games...Uno Attack, anyone?...and took the obligatory photo. We were so happy Grandma came to celebrate with us! And if you see an extra face there, that is Madison's BFF Jessica. : )
We finished off the night with Peyton's traditional Lime Jello Cake for dessert.
And that is a wrap on St. Patrick's Day 2015!
Have a wonderful weekend, my friends.
I heard a rumor we here in Pennsylvania may be seeing some snowflakes fly!
