Back In The Saddle Again!

Hello, Friends and Visitors!

After being unable to blog for almost two months, during which time my computer had just about everything replaced on it that could be replaced, I am back up and running and excited to be here in Blogland again.

First, for those of you who are visiting for Menu Planning Monday, a new menu just for you:

Monday - Zesty Chicken Meatloaf, Green beans and mashed potatoes

Tuesday - Shrimp and Asparagus Fettucine, Salad

Wednesday - BBQ Chicken Legs, Potatoe Salad, Corn and Salad

Thursday - Artichoke Pie, Salad and Artisan Bread

Friday - Meatball Hoagies and Salad

Saturday - Homemade Pizza and Fruit Salad

Sunday - Hm.m.m.m...not sure. Will have to look at other people's menus and be inspired! :)

Is anyone else out there excited about Spring? Especially those in my area (Northern Utah) should feel thrilled as we have had a L.O.N.G Winter. We have had snow on and off steadily since February. We need the water, but, enough already! Now, my apple tree is blooming and things are warming up. My favorite backyard birdies are making whoopee out in the lilac tree that hangs over our fence from our neighbors and some birdies have already settled down and made a home. Mr. and Mrs. House Finch are at our feeders, mornings and evenings, as are Mr. and Mrs. Dove and a group of Chickadees. Will let you know when the little ones begin mature enough to leave the nest as they are generally hopping around (will keep the cat in when that starts!).

What signs of Spring are around where you are?

A very late, but happy Springtime to you and yours!

Make it a great day~!

Welcome back! I like the new look, you've been busy :)

Spring...well, spring is here. It's been here since February. My in-ground peas are only about 12 inches high, even still :)

Because I know you'll ask, YES I've been making music :) (What has your daughter been up to??)

I love an apple tree in bloom. Aroung here, I have bought jars and pectin in the hopes of making strawberry jam soon, and we have 7 new kittens! Life is good. :) Glad you're back.
