Do you see this view?
My one lone forsythia bush has burst forth into yellow!
I LOVE forsythia season. That yellow doesn’t tone itself down for ANY ONE!
It is what it is ---whether you like yellow or not, it stands true and proud to itself, fulfilling its purpose.
One of the first signs to me that spring really IS here, along with the daffies and the dogwodods.
It’s a bit cloudy, and late this afternoon after a nap, Sadie and I headed out for a much needed slow hike.
I still don’t have ALL of my lung capacity back after this bout of bronchitis. But I was told that moderate exercise would help clear out the rest of the residual gunk and I would breath easier sooner.
And let’s face it – something has to help take off the 5 pounds that the steroids put on me.
And we won’t even talk about what antibiotics do to a middle aged woman’s ph balance….uh. No.
And so we hiked dirt covered roads!
And we walked through the woods:
It’s a great day to be on the mountain, mom!
Yes it is. I arrived just around 10:30am, and first things first did this:
Chicken in a crock pot!
I left the boys with a roast chicken when I left for Oklahoma. There was still half of it in the fridge when I got back and so here it is, making a big pot of chicken soup to last me more than the next couple of days – I’ll be freezing the leftovers for another trip.
But is there anything that smells more cabin-warming than a pot of home made soup? I don’t think so!
Recipe found under the recipes tab at the top of the blog!
There has been some cutting out going on!
And some sewing happening!
And I’ll be binding tonight ---
I think what I love the most about this place is the quiet. No cars. Sometimes birds. Not even bugs yet. Every once in a while the breeze will ruffle the flags hanging happily off of my front porch rail ---and if the wind is gusty enough, a tinkling sound comes from the wind chimes, but other than that ---it’s just Sadie and me, enjoying some solo time at the cabin while Jeff is working late hours and the Hubster is in Phoenix on business.
I’m right where I need to be!
