Winter Wonderland

 

The end is near! Or not...

Well, winter has finally hit Minnesota.  I live in Marshall, which is southwestern part of the state and, for some reason, it’s taken until this week to get any snow that’s stuck for more than 8 hours.  Bizarre.  I’m sure it won’t stay, as it’s supposed to be warm again this weekend.  I went from wearing a t-shirt and sweats on Tuesday to not having enough layers Wednesday.  58 degrees to 10 degrees in a day.

On to the discussion of the pic.  My husband and I bring a twelve step meeting into our local jail every other week.  We were having these unseasonably warm days and asked the jailer, as we were leaving, if he had a chance to enjoy the nice weather, making good Minnesota small-talk.

“No, I’ve been preparing for end times,” he says.

We giggled a little then realized he was serious.

Anyhoo… here are my latest articles of interest…

Buffett to Republicans: If You Pay, So Will I

Have I mentioned how much I enjoy Warren Buffett?  For being one of the richest men out there, he really knows how to push the ticket.  The article says that ” he would donate $1 to paying down the national debt for every dollar donated by a Republican in Congress. The only exception is Senate Republican leader Mitch McConnell – for whom Buffett said he would go $3-to-$1.”

Fan-freaking-tastic!  If only people would take him up on it…

I’ve been having weird shoulder/neck pain from crocheting lately… I think I’m going to have to give it a rest for a while.

In the meanwhile, we’ve been looking through the recipes in the Hell’s Kitchen cookbook.  They have lots of recipes within recipes within recipes.  Very weird.  It’s like footnotes inside of footnotes.  We might try the sausage bread this weekend.  Maybe the “tits up crab cakes,” too.  I’ll post pics.  🙂
