Winter is colder this year?!

Winter is colder this year than it's been for a while! Or maybe I just forget from year to year? I compare it to having a baby in some respects, as you forget about the pain as soon as you see those beautiful green "baby" shoots coming up out of the earth in Spring!

Of course...we've had a "hard" winter for this area, as we've had two significant snow storms which is unusual. Christmas day it began snowing late in the day, and it was beautiful! Then of course the other week we had quite a storm, i received about 5 inches at my house. We were "stuck" for about three days as our roads were horrible, all ice. We don't have the equipment they have in the northern states to clear the roads. Then, the sky tried to flurry at us again yesterday. I am not a snowbird....I enjoy looking outside at it, but don't particularly care for being house-bound for long. I did enjoy the few days, though, that my daughter Ginny and I were house-bound together because she and I are usually like ships passing in the night. We got to spend some "quality time" together...I even baked some homemade bread a few times and found she LOVES bread! (well, who doesn't?)

I am going to attempt making some sort of herb bread today, as well as the whole-wheat. If it is successful, I will try to remember to post the recipe. However, my grandson Tommy will be over tonite (he's a handful - he's 2 1/2) so I might be so worn out I'll forget to post!

Well cheers to all, and have an awesome weekend! I'm off to bake!


Brrrr....Happy New Year!!

Hi all, and a HAPPY NEW YEAR from Marietta, Georgia.  A week ago we got the worse snow storm we've had in a long time! I got about five (5!!) inches at my house, my daughter received 6 inches and she's thirty minutes north of me.  Not a lot to do when you are snowed in, except dream of spring, look at seed catalogs, feed the birds and watch them through the window....i saw BLUEBIRDS at my seed feeders, amazing!  Never seen that before.  Hmmm...I've been baking and EATing...and dreaming up a new tea blend!  Hopefully you will be able to purchase my new Minty Fresh Twisted herbal tea blend online here soon.  I am enjoying my new creation.  And, fortunately, we are now out and about again, with still much snow on the's been freezing all week! I need spring to come soon so I can escape into the outdoors again!  Hope you all are staying warm and dreaming of spring as well....til next time, debbie
