Although I cringe at the thought of winter, I do enjoy the first few snow flakes that slip from the sky. On the way to Cub Scouts last night a quick burst of lake effect snow passed through. It was beautiful…short lived…and didn’t require a shovel.
So much to smile about today.
It’s my brother’s birthday.
Happy Birthday, ole Gus
We won’t make a fuss
We’ll just grab some fake wine
Your favorite, not mine!
(Because it’s truly awful)
Today I’m also celebrating the release of a close friend’s first published work. It’s on the steamy side (major blush) but pick up a copy.
Oh, not to overwhelm you with my good cheer – but I’m also celebrating my early morning teacher/student/parent conferences. I feel very lucky that my kids go to a great school with fantastic teachers. Between the environment and their hard work, they are achieving great success. Psst…as a parent it’s really nice not having to fear teacher conferences. Wait I take that back. My kids and I do get nervous before hand because my husband always threatens to act goofy. Today we brought one of our dog leashes just in case 🙂
Off to go count apples now. If I have at least eight I might make an apple pie. I made one earlier this week for my older son’s Thanksgiving celebration but didn’t get to steal even a small bite. It was painful. Very painful. I’m going to post the recipe here in the next few days. You’ll love it!!!
