I haven't been able to get into this site for 2 days but was so happy to finally get back in! Got 6 inches of snow last night. I must confess I'm happy to see it! After fighting one flu/cold after another for the last 10 days I'm glad to just stay home and do nothing!
It is my son's 25th birthday today. He is currently living at home so he got to choose the menu today. He asked for and got Double Cheeseburgers and homemade curly fries and salad. For his birthday cake he requested angel food dessert. We tear up the angel food cake into pieces and put into a 9X13 pan and then cover it with pudding and then he requested blueberries and strawberries and then whipped cream. He got practical presents of clothes and shoes except for the 5 qt ice cream bucket his sister filled to the top with his favorite candies.
We had a double movie day and Dad handed out treats to every one. We got enough sugar flowing through this house to keep us all sick for a week!
We went hiking to the other side of the lake and ran into a pack of coyotes. One of them came to within 10 feet of my daughter. There was enough of them to make me real nervous and looking for a limb to grab and swing if need be. but our dogs came up right then and the coyotes fled back into the woods. My daughter is still so thrilled over being so very close to one of them. I wonder how happy she'd be if she realized they are staving and looking for fresh meat right now!
I suppose I ought to go get some work done after having several days in bed. Might run out and enjoy the snow a little more too!
