parents. The hmj is brewed & I'm ready to start my day - the rest of the world needs to catch up today. I believe I have to utilize this energy when it hits; not when it's convenient for others to help. Looks like the tweedle household needs a new schedule It snowed yesterday - there is over 7 inches in our backyard. It really is a very pretty sight even if just by the flood lights that go on every now & then. kt, while I was sleeping yesterday, filled my bird feeders (god bless 'er) & told me the cardinals looked so pretty against the new snow. I may have converted another to the delights of keeping a bird sanctuary in their yard. I believe today entails shoveling, menu planning & since I have a bit of energy & a great deal of time before my family arises, a batch of banana nut muffins, followed by pumpkin bread. I'd like to freeze the bread for upcoming holiday meals & such. Enjoy your day - stay warm & dry. Here's to cooperative & loving difficult children & never, ever forget to hug your loved ones.
