And The Rains Came

It has been raining
my windows for over a week.
I was so
disappointed I could not see the March full moon
I have enjoyed looking at the beautiful photos of it
My grandmother use to tell me,
"Goodness Child! the world is not perfect!"
So I have contented myself on these rainy days
painting my study the colors of this sky....so very pretty
puppy dog sitting for the sweetest and most patient
little dachshund.

During her stay Little Chris has taught her about the
of dinosaurs
She is not so sure about the stickers
but he told her they would not eat her if she had them on!!!
I told you she was patient.

I made chocolate croissants for breakfast
every day this week.
I found an easy way to make them on Firefly Cottage.
They are so yummy!!!!
I am not going to tell you how many I have eaten.......

I planted snow peas and Kohlrabi in my fall garden
at this moment
are at their peak.
I have been looking for as many ways to cook them as I can find.

Kohlrabi is  a new vegetable to me
I am surprised at how very much I enjoy it.

Since it is raining
I can not work in my garden.
I have been cooking
snowpeas from the garden
roasted kohlrabi and butternut squash
chinese chicken and snowpeas
chocolate croissants

Please forgive this very long post
it is still raining!!!

  5. I tried two or three times to comment earlier but it blogger wouldn't take the comment, so I've forgotten what I had written. I do like the doggie and grandson picture and if I could I would have that chocolate croissant every morning! Sorry you missed the moon and hope you see less rain soon!
