Sunday Morning Coffee Talk

It gray and dreary outside this morning. We got the biggest snowfall of the season last night — which is still only about four inches. For some reason, the snow keeps going around us this year.

Not that I’m complaining. We’ve been getting enough to keep it pretty but not enough to cause any major school closings or other inconveniences, which is pretty much perfect in my book. Still, I keep hoping we get dumped on at least once before the winter is over. I love snow. I always have.

Someone needs to fill the bird feeder.

Even though I often talk longingly about moving south, I think I’d really miss winter. It is spring I detest. Spring never quite arrives here, and I have to wait sooooo long for summer. I do miss springtime in Virginia.

Any-Who. Why do I feel compelled to begin every post discussing the weather?

We just started watching Gilmore Girls. I know I’m late to this party, but everyone talks about it and keeps telling me I should watch it, so we finally started with Season 1 on Netflix. I think it’s safe to say that I’m totally hooked, and so are my girls. It’s rated TV14, but so far, I don’t see any reason the girls (9 and 12) can’t watch with me. Does it get inappropriate at some point?

In other news, I saw my foot doctor (orthopedist) this week. I can’t remember if I wrote about that or not. He basically said to finish out PT, and in a few weeks I should be able to begin resuming normal activities. I’m not sure what that means. I have no grand plans to start running or anything, but it sure would be nice to walk and bike again.

Ironically, after I saw the doc, my foot has started bothering me a lot, and it’s been bothering me quite a bit these past few days, so I’m still skeptical that it is actually getting better. I suppose only time will tell. I’m just trying to wear sensible shoes and not think about it too much.

Let’s see, what else? I’ve been out and about a lot this week, which is not good for getting work accomplished, but it is good for my spirits. On Friday, I actually went out for both lunch and dinner. Oh, did I mention, it is also not good for my waistline. UGH. I know I should do that sugar detox again and try to get back on the wagon, but I really do enjoy my indulgences.

Case in point, I made peanut butter donuts with chocolate ganache yesterday…. stay tuned. I’ll be posting the recipe soon! They were really good for gluten-free baking. In fact, I just had one with my morning coffee. Mmmm….


It IS National Margarita Day today, so don’t miss the Raspberry Margarita recipe that Colleen posted yesterday.

Finally, this is my last week of the 28 Days of Daily Outfits. I’d love to hear from you. Would you like a spring edition? Do you like it better when I post one outfit at a time? Or is it better to just do my weekly Daily Mom Style posts and leave it at that? I’m debating because I know not everyone is into the fashion, and I’m afraid that posting a new outfit every day might be overkill in that department. Let me know!

Have a lovely Sunday, and stay warm!
