Happy First Day of Spring?????

Well, didn’t the Vernal Equinox just dump a load of stuff on Kansas City!!!!

We went from mid 60s and gorgeous yesterday to 30 degrees and THIS this morning. Guess I won’t be hosting any luncheons on the deck today. Bummer! (No, I wasn’t really going to do that.) Looks like we got between 3 to 4 inches of the white—with possibly more on the way. Hmmm…just when you thought it was safe to come out in the weather.

Oh, well, a perfect day to stay inside in the comfy sweats and read the new book:

FarmChicksInKitchen

A Borders coupon was “burning a hole in my pocket” (as my mom used to say) and I found so many great uses for it, but settled on this one. So glad I did! A bonus one-year subscription to Country Living magazine was included in the price of the book!!! I have followed these gals (Serena and Teri) on their blog for a while now and love all their homey touches and great recipes. It’s good to see bloggers “make it big”!!! Apparently, Teri has now retired and Serena is writing the blog on her own.

A coupla cutesy ideas from the book:

Off to the couch with my cuppa and new book! Hope your 1st Day of Spring looks a little better…

Winter hasn't finished with you guys yet it seems...and summer isn't done here! we had a hint of Autumn a couple of weeks ago with lovely cool nights and mornings....but since then it has been back to the hot weather again.....enjoy your new book...just think you will feel like you should be out in the garden once Spring arrives!

*winter* and to think I once longed for it . . . . now I only want to wish it away! Still the signs of spring are around. Hang in there!

Can you believe that white stuff. Holly was suppose to fly home today from Oklahoma City to Kansas City to Milwaukee and all flights got cancelled in OKC! At least she isn't stuck in Kansas City!
