Waiting for Spring

Waiting for Spring

A single bird waiting for the sun to rise higher, warming the earth and melting the iced branches of her perch. Watching and listening to the activity all around as creatures ready the nests for a new generations birth. As she graces us all with her sweet sound, signs of waiting for spring is all around.

Bringing a Meal to a Friend with Children

Easy Fun Food that you can just pick up a couple of like snack Fun Crackers and meat rolls with those little cutie oranges that are so easy to peel with no seeds is a favorite. I especially like to take breakfast items because it might help their day start off a little easier. Fresh fruit, yogurt and granola, juice, eggs, ham slices, bagels and cream cheese, biscuits in a can, fun cereals and disposable bowls/plates with napkins is a good start. A good coffee and tea with some bread and butter for toast for those light morning eaters would be a blessing to your friend. If I have ripe bananas I like to make some banana bread or zucchini bread too but always ask if they have allergies before adding nuts.

Teaching videos can be accessed anytime day or night and many are free. As a beginner crafter I can stop and rewind as many times as I need to learn the pattern. At the same time I’m listening to Christmas music on Pandora in April. Technology is rewarding and I am thankful for it.

2012 Turner, Oregon Flood- taking a back road since the two main roads out of town are flooded, a flat tire on a sloped soggy roadside. Several young men stop to help and one almost lost a hand when car jack slipped. So thankful for these guys.
