Hope SPRINGS Eternal!
Supposedly we had a light snow during the morning’s rush hour that slowed down the morning commute. I wouldn’t know, because Mlle. Renee stayed in bed until eight when the shrill ringing of the phone woke us up. Naturally, it was Anne from Credit Services pitching the latest scam spiel. No matter how many times they change her name, the voice always sounds the same. Unfortunately, because my mother’s name was Anne I was able to go into my usual rant of select profanities hoping someone human in Sicklesia, Arfgroanistan, or wherever these robo-calls originate is listening in and will be highly offended. Anyway getting back to the snow that I didn’t see, if it was for the weather wizard’s exaggerated reports I would have never know about it. It was as cold as Nome with a very strong, chilling wind. I did brave the chill to go out and refill the little birds seed dish. And lo and behold, what to my eyes should appear, but …
THE FIRST SIGNS OF SPRING!!!
I know I could count the early robins, but their red breasts have been sort of blueish this year. Note that in spite of all the snow we had this season. We’re still suffering from the drought. The weather wizards say it was very dry snow. Go figure.
Now, I didn’t make doughnuts, those are biscuits. I must have been half asleep and grabbed the doughnut cutter rather than the biscuit cutter.But my mini-cinnis are the same. I just used pearl sugar to top them instead of frosting swirls.
Then I dressed warmly and went to the stupid market for a little shopping.
But it turned out to be SHOPPING MISTAKE #864. I’ll put them aside for when my nephews visit. They eat anything with COOKIE on the label.
I’m not crazy about saltines, but give me matzos for eating with chili or soup or just snacking.
