Today, I got a lot of tasks accomplished. I feel great.
I ditched my winter coat this morning and wore a pink hoody and it was all I needed. Spring is in the air. I live in a soggy area that is mostly clay, so my rubber boots completely my ensemble.
To begin my "To Do" list, I planted my primula plants. They are hardy and will put up with cool nights and lots of rain.
I went to the bank and paid my life insurance. In another shop, I bought half a yard of fabric that I've had my eye on. On my way out, I saw something perfect for my mom's birthday... bought that and headed for the post office. I put the gift into an envelope along with a birthday card and had that in the mail before lunchtime.
I enjoyed a bit of a walk in the sunshine getting back to my car. I drove to my local library to pick up one book that was being held for me. I checked out another book on traditional quilt patterns, so that takes me back to the fabric I purchased this morning.
On the drive home, I wondered what I would make for supper. I was quickly approaching a favourite veggie market, so I turned off and found great bananas, colourful carrots, a zucchini, some potatoes and a red onion.
I made up a quick stew and found out my partner had not had any lunch yet. I was able to tell him that there was food ready as he walked in the door!
A neighbour showed up to drop off something and I traded a book that I had just finished. That was a win-win visit for sure.
Do you ever had days that seem like all the pieces simply fall into place? The timing feels right and the effort is easy? That's the kind of day I enjoyed today.

I'm venturing into new territory today. I will be buying the ingredients for a Spark Recipe: Chicken Escondido.
I like all the ingredients, so I imagine that altogether, I should enjoy a new delight to the taste buds.
What do you think? Does chicken, black beans, salsa verde and sundried tomatoes do it for you?
MMMM! I look forward to a fiesta!

For the past month or two, one of my buddies from out east (4,000 kms away) has been trying to add himself to Skype so that we could chat for free. My computer has a camera, so that is always fun to see each other as we talk.
I look forward to adding him as a contact, but the problem is... he is technically challenged.
Let's face it, technology changes quicker than the weather. Just when you think you have one way of communicating figured out, your friends can move to another and then another form of technology.
So far this morning, he has not been able to access Skype. Then he couldn't figure out how to change his status to On Line. Suffice to say, we will not be having an on line discussion any time soon.
Sigh... Do you find it challenging to learn Emailing, Text Messaging, Skyping, Facebooking, or maybe Google/ Gmail calling?

It may have been that I have not allowed myself pizza in more than a year, but last Saturday night, I enjoyed THE best pizza that I can remember. I was at a very local restaurant better known for its beer and wings... and yet the pizza was exquisite!
I tried it for the first time and I usually don't like a thin crust. I've been won over now!!
Instead of a soupy tomato sauce, this one had fresh tomatoes. My partner thought too many chunks... but I liked it. There was a light use of feta cheese and artichokes. WHAT?? ART-I-CHOKES??? Oooohhhh yeah.
I suppose there was onion too, but everything was so well balanced that I had to write it down here.
So, if you live north of Victoria, BC and you can locate the Prairie Inn.... I encourage you to try their pizza. It wasn't salty either.
