It was not a difficult choice for me.
I love Gingerbread but Dark Chocolate Cake took the prize...
I love, Love, LOVE Chocolate,
Especially when it comes as a cake,
All wrapped in Silky Peanut Butter Frosting.
For me, it's best with a hot cup of black coffee.
One more bite, oh how sweet.
The weather has taken a leap from the minuses
to the 20's, 26F. above zero at the moment.
Well, that's almost warm enough to think about~~~
Going outside for a long walk.,
Scarf wrapped around my neck for the first 1/2 mile.
Yes, folks, I'm walking again.
One thing I hate about winter up north,
Is, where I walk, there is either ice, deep snow or slush.
On the cold, Cold, COLD days, I walk inside.
No matter, I am bound and determined to stay with it,
Garden season is already near,
The garden catalogs are coming daily.
Seeds, bulbs, tubers, sets, shrubs, fruit trees, berries,
I am anxious.
Each year, we say we will not add more to our gardens,
But, lo and behold, something in the air grabs us.
We order more than we intended.
We plant and plant and plant.
We harvest and live well.
My Man loves his tractor, he loves to dig.
Maybe he will be putting Garden # 4 in this spring.
We need a patch, just for pumpkins, another for beans.
We all love carrots and squash and peas off the vine.
Hurry, check to see if the first tomato is ripe.
I often wonder,
Just how do people that do not garden,
Even from their window-sill or patio,
Do they really have no choice except to
Buy from the Farmers Market?
At least they are getting better produce and fruit
Than any grocer can offer.
And see what you have been missing.
I have a couple of new seed catalogs to scan.
Most are free, order yourself a few and
Savor the flavor.
