Life Goes On

Although it's colder again this weekend, the the weather of the past week has been somewhat nicer. We had a few nice, sunny days above zero followed by a few more mild days that were cloudy. One day, I even remarked that there was a hint of spring in the air, but that was probably wishful thinking more than reality. Still, one hopes that most of the very coldest weather is behind us.

Sue and I went out for breakfast on Valentine's Day, and at a last minute we had the youngers over for a Valentine supper. I made my standby meat loaf, but I also did a new thing by roasting some red potatoes. I just coated them with olive oil and onion soup mix and roasted at 450 for 40, and they turned out quite well. I wonder if this would work for all potatoes?

Here are a few photos from the past two weeks.

We generally read to/with Danica on weekday mornings. Amelia Bedelia is a fave. When Sue saw her resting her hand on mine, she decided to take a picture.

This is actually from the previous week when part of JJ's birthday celebration included a trip to
Tims for donuts. As you can see by his toy, we had already been to Dollarama.

Also from JJ's birthday: he received a Sens (hockey team) had and mitts. So, I decided to photoshop a rink in the background.

It warmed up enough to thaw ice and create deliciously splashy puddles.

Thanks for stopping by my blog...it's always nice to know someone read it. The AC is also on here...expecting temps in the 30's tonight...very cold for Florida. Probably a warm up for you...

Meat loaf is a favorite comfort food dinner here and usually served with mashed potatoes. Yes, I have roasted potatoes with olive oil and onion soup mix, quite tasty and easy!
Hats on you and Jonathan looked great.

I love JJ's look in the second picture. I can't quite figure out what his message is but he sure looks cute getting it across.

He is such a handsome little guy! And he has a sweet look about him. I love his "manly" walk out of the puddle.

The picture of Danica's hand on yours is SO touching. Evidently just reading together wasn't enough sharing with you. She needed to also hold your hand. What a great picture to cherish over the years.
