Sunday 27 Feb.
This morning I made a batch of buttermilk bran muffins. During the week, my husband & I eat these for breakfast because it is easy for him to take on the go & they taste great. The recipe makes 2 1/2 dozen. The recipe calls for adding nuts & dried fruit which is optional. I like to add a dried fruit mixture of apples, cranberries, blueberries & cherries, I found at Cost co. This batch also has pecans in it because that was the nuts I had in my freezer.

My oldest son was home for a visit. We gave him a new compound bow for Christmas because he out grew his old one. He didn't have a chance to put it together or sight it in during Christmas. Since the weather was nice today, he & my hubby worked on the bow, & sighted it in.
Wednesday 2 March
Every morning I get to go to therapy for my knee, which right now is being hooked up to a machine that send electric current to my muscle, while I sit there & do nothing. This is my daily reading time which I'm enjoying. I finished the last book I posted here & started this one today. Luci Swindoll is Chuck Swindoll's sister & one of my favorite speakers at Women of Faith conference. Her books are great too.
Thursday 3 March
We have three indoor cats who have cat toys & fake mice to play with. Grouchy plays with them the most & get a little carried away to where the mice get hit under the stove in the kitchen, under the couch in the living room, buried in the coat closet, etc. So when my husband sees our cat laying belly up looking under the stove, couch & other places for a couple of days in a row, this is a hint to please get my mice for me. My husband went on a mouse hunt tonight & found all the mice & tiger toy for the cats. Then lined them up on the shoe towel by the coat closet for the cats to find.
AD (short for attention deficit, which she has a problem with doesn't think she gets enough attention) was the first to see what Daddy did & laid on the towel to guard them. Her two favorite are the yellow ones because they rattle when she wacks them around the house.
Her sister Grouchy also realized what Daddy did, chased sissy away & took over controlling the mice. If you notice she has separated her favorite mouse from the rest (laying in front of her). By morning all of the mice were scattered through the house.
Friday 4 March
In the evening if we have nothing else to do, my husband & I will play Lego Star Wars on the Wii together. Yes, this is MY game my boys gave me one year either for my birthday or Christmas. This is a fun game, that we use to play with our boys. We almost have this game beat then we will probably move on the Lego Batman, another one of my games. I hoping to get the new Lego Star Wars Clone Wars Wii game for Mother's day.
Saturday 5 March
I ventured out with my husband & Fred (my crutch I have to use) to the Christian school (in a small town called New Hampton population 291) I use to teach at. I left some things in my room & needed to bring them home. Then we went to Bethany (where we do everything, population 3, 292) to do some shopping & ate lunch at Wendy's. First time I have gone shopping in 4 weeks since messing up my knee. Made the circle by coming home & as got close to turn into our town, we saw hundreds of geese landing on Stephen's 3rd cousin's farm.

Zoom shot of one of the many flocks of snow & Canadian geese landing. A sign that spring is getting closer, yeah!!
