hooray for company!

The lightning flashed, the thunder crashed and the rain poured. We had a few minutes of pea sized hail and there were flood warnings throughout the area. But after all that, this:

In order to make the most of the rainy day, I spent about two hours doing Bible study, made sugar cookies for my choir girls (did I tell you I have six now?) and baked a pie crust.

I also planted some grass in my garage. Yep, in the garage. I've always wanted to do a little Easter centerpiece with real live grass and this year I finally remembered to plant the grass ahead of time. I'll show you pictures when the time comes (and if things don't turn out the way I want them to, we'll just pretend I never mentioned it, K?).

I have grand plans for that pie crust today. I haven't made a banana cream pie in, probably decades. But today I'm making a banana cream pie with real meringue on top. I haven't made meringue in, probably decades. I think it is time. 'Specially 'cuz I have a hankerin' for some banana cream pie. But even more aunt is arriving from NC this afternoon and I think banana cream pie will top off our turkey dinner just right (and if things don't turn out the way I want them to, we'll just pretend I never mentioned it, K?).

My lovely sister-in-law and my adorable niece Emilee are coming next week for an overnighter as well. I foresee cookie decorating and Easter egg dying in our future. And probably a visit to the park. Have a great weekend everyone!
the crocuses were a bit afraid to open up yesterday...which is good...
hail would not be their friend

What a great way to spend a rainy day.

I bought some tulip, hyacinth, and daffodil bulbs today ... all up and ready to bloom soon. I hope the deer will leave them alone.

Happy weekend!

The deer won't bother the daffodils, but I'm not so sure about the tulips and hyacinths. Speaking from past experience here....
