It sprang

There was some melting today!  Wheeee, it felt almost spring-like.  It gave me a boost of energy I haven't felt in weeks.  I met The Hens for coffee downtown this morning and then picked up some treats at the german bakery for auntie.  I even stopped at the florist and picked up a new little house plant.

I found some of the pots Mom painted at her adult day care group.  Once I found them I wanted to put them around the house.  I'm starting to care about the house again so I know I must be feeling better.  I even did some housework for the first time in weeks.  And it really needed it. 

I even cooked a real meal.  The guy was in town yesterday selling fresh fish from his truck.  He is usually in town every Friday but most times he is sold out before I get off work.  Fresh scallops.....

.....sautéed in butter.  Look at the perfect carmelization on those beauties!  Finished with a butter lemon chive drizzle with some vegetable orzo with goat cheese

I'm back!!   


  1. So happy to hear you are all better :)
    Those scallops looks amazing.
    May you get lots more springlike weather!!!
    Hugs :)

  2. I am so glad you are back! Your food looks yummy. I will be glad when I get to the point food is important.
    As with housecleaning. I am so glad you had such a nice day that felt like spring. It really is I am sure just around the corner. Have a lovely Sunday.

  3. Fresh scallops! That's about as close to food heaven as you can get!

    Didn't I tell ya that spring *might* be on it's way?? That was before we got another three inches of snow. LOL! But it is melting!!! Horay!!!
    There is life after the S-word.

  7. Kim, please don't tell us that you ate that delicious meal with (I'm sure) a great glass of wine...... but without a hot date? Say it isn't so.
