All in a MONDAY...

 We spent a few hours with our friends, the Blues, today at their house. Though shorter time than we would have liked, we enjoyed our little getaway with them. The traffic was not too bad in the HOV lanes.

I was able to get a nice pic of their grand piano with one of my favorite bouquets. Included is a photo of Mrs. Blue rearranging the wheelchair when we first arrived and another of Bro. Blue just before we left.

We hope we can go again next month. We sure love these folks!

The bluest skies... in Seattle

Yesterday was a glorious and beautiful day! We spotted a bald eagle over our church parking lot and I had my camera for a change! Whew! What a majestic bird!

Last month I had been singing this song in my head ["Seattle"] from a show we used to watch about Seattle and their importing of brides for the early settlers. The words say "the bluest skies you've ever seen are in Seattle!" Then the song played over the radio one day while I was driving! So I found the Youtube version of the quaint song for you to enjoy it too!

Seattle area is my "HOME" since 1974, even though we spent five of those years in Vermont! This song says it well! When our skies are blue, its a stunning event to be enjoyed!

Al poses with the "supersized" food in the grocery store!

When I noticed the supersized food boxes in the grocery cart today, I laughed out loud, thinking of my daughter Charity's large family food needs. She is expecting her twelfth child in about six weeks and the household goes through a LOT of food. Too bad they can't get these size boxes!

Cat Head Biscuits! (REALLY Kittens!)

So we finally found out the preacher CAN bake!

After finding a recipe online for "cat head biscuits" the preacher went to the store for all the supplies to make them for the Men's Breakfast at church this morning!

He even found cookie cutters with "ears" that he shaped into cat ears! How cute!

They were edible and delicious, I heard (I didn't get one, so cannot give a first hand report!)

Live and LEARN! I guess "old dogs" CAN learn "new tricks"!

Summer in March?

As I waited for my ride to "ladies night out" on Tuesday, I noticed a golden glow at the top of some of our neighborhood trees. There was a few sprinkles in the area, and the sun was peeking through the trees toward the sunset.

Suddenly we watched a rainbow materialize behind the glowing trees! Incredible and breathtaking!
