Signs of Spring

I saw daffodils blooming across the street today! Could Spring be far behind? The robins are really starting to get thick in our neighborhood, and the weeds are peeking up in our yard. These are all hopeful signs. The long, cold winter is almost over!

My birthday was yesterday. I turned 47. It's not a bad thing, I actually enjoy my birthday, unlike most middle-aged women. I feel like I have earned each grey hair and every single wrinkle. Plus, I'm a survivor...of cancer, parenting teens and just plain breathing.

I got lots of nice birthday cards and phone calls and books (my favorite gift!). The Hubster made a feast of sage roasted turkey, baked sweet potatoes and chocolate cake. I know, I know, I'm spoiled rotten! Since it was Sunday, we did the usual morning and evening church services and I sang in the morning worship hour. All in all, it was a nice, quiet and satisfying day.

We tried a new recipe tonight, and it was a big winner! Sausage and peppers by Giada De Laurentiis of the Food Network was a saucy, slightly spicy start to our week. The Hubster likes Giada's recipes almost as much as he likes watching her cook on TV. She's pretty easy on the eyes, let's just say.
