So, not much change going on here. Maybe I should have done a weekly watch instead of a daily watch. Could this be the dreaded "a-watched-pot-never-boils" syndrome? This little bud is being pretty stubborn if you ask me.

My oh my oh my. When will it ever be spring? The snow is certainly NOT what I wanted to see when I looked out my window this morning! I don't blame Mr. Daffodil for continuing to hide from the cruel, cold world . . . . With weather like this I feel his pain!

A particularly sweet moment came for me when, as Sean and Christian were walking ahead of me out of the school auditorium after the awards were made, big brother threw his arm over the shoulder of younger brother in a tender show of affection and admiration. Sweet indeed.

I tied this cute little ribbon around our chosen daffodil so we can be sure we're not misidentifying our newly adopted bud, kind of like that mother who tatooed the name of a gambling site (classy!) on her forehead for $10,000 for the sake of giving her boy a private edjicashion! Her boy will never run the risk of misidentifying her, I'll bet. At least not by accident. (Click here for more about this SLC gal.)
Being one who DOES sweat the small stuff, last week seemed to be an unusually stressful week for me with Sharing Time at church, dutifully attending traffic school and visiting the dentist (on the same day, people!!!), celebrating(????) another birthday, being in charge of a big Primary quarterly activity with the entire church congregation invited, preparing for Easter and 13 Easter dinner guests, etc., etc., whine, whine, whine. (Suddenly, seeing this stuff written down makes my week look like a bowl of Cheerios . . . or a bowl of cherries, whatever.) Anyway! I'm glad it's over, but equally glad for all that occurred during those stressful days. Everything couldn't have turned out better, thanks to boatloads of help. Except for the dentist. Tada! No cavities! Only, since I need a nifty crown on my molar, now we will have to put off buying that 45-foot yacht we've been eyeing. Shucks.

Post script: I never did find Sean or the jazz band because (oops!) Sean told me the wrong location--I should have gone to Timpanogos High School instead. I'm sure it was all an honest mistake, right? I'm sure of it. . . . Right? Tell me I'm right. Please.

Roasted herbed red potatoes, roasted red peppers with Parmesan cheese and roasted red tomatoes with basilRed bread! Red bread? Yep! Red velvet cake with cream cheese frosting. Hoo boy! Little Red Babushka striking a pose!
Even though Valentine's Day had come and gone, I still felt the need, the need for speed! (No! No! That's from Top Gun. Sheesh.) I felt the need to throw my Red Dinner before February came to a close. I love themed parties, and February proved to be the perfect opportunity for another one. As you can see, almost all of the food was red and so some of the side dishes aren't perfect pairings with the entree, but I didn't hear anyone complaining. A good thing too.
