Sweet Valentines


Quick Treat

I got inspired earlier this week with the purchase of a package of English muffins. Using the muffins and a Costco precooked breakfast sausage patty and an egg, I made myself a delicious breakfast sandwich. Since the kids would probably like one, too, I considered making them for lunch, but with a burst of energy and ingenuity I made them right before I left for pick-up, wrapped them separately in foil and brought them their own "fast food" breakfast sandwiches for... well, for lunch! Shocked by their good fortune, they were  very appreciative and the quick stop at Clackamette Park to observe the mildly flooding river was very welcome, as well. 

January 2017

January flew by, though there were times when there was snow on the ground and it seemed like it might never end. My kids had five consecutive snow days! Five! I realize that in other parts of the country, even as close as Tri-Cities, Washington, that our brief travail with snow and ice was laughable, but we Portland, Oregon residents just aren't equipped to deal with it. We did buy a snow shovel, that finally came. Too late, of course.
