I imagine that she did.
I purchased the phone at one of my favorite thrift stores last night. My purchases always have sentimental value to me.
I think I will ring my Mom and find out if she did, indeed, have one.
Have a great day!

That being said, I have chosen to stay home, light some candles...

Apparently, it is best to prune during a thaw.
He brought a few branches in.
I am now forcing them to bloom.
Hopefully, I will be seeing yellow very shortly:)
I will let you know.

I baked them using a recipe from my Mom's recipe box. They were good and everyone enjoyed them. However, they were not as good as Paula Deen's Lady Brownies. I swear these are the best brownies I have ever eaten and they are so easy to make.
Here's the receipe.
Preheat oven to 325.
In a large bowl, combine:
2 cups sugar
1 cup vegetable oil
6 tablespoons cocoa (I use heaping, and I mean heaping)
1 teaspoon vanilla
add 1 1/2 cups self-rising flour and mix thoroughly.
When done, cool, cut, and enjoy with a glass of milk...
and one of your favorite dogs staring you down:)

Tonight, however, I am setting down with Dave, DJ and a bowl of popcorn made from my new popcorn popper. I had one just like it when I was a kid. Thank you Dave for buying it for me. It is one of my all time favorite Christmas presents.
We will be watching Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince. We have all seen it at least two times, but we don't care. It is so clever and a great way to end the weekend. I cannot wait to see the final two movies.
Enjoy your night.

We surprised my brother, John, by showing up unexpectedly.
I took a lot of pictures of Grayce playing ball...
Now get out there and dance your socks off:)

I, on the other hand, enjoyed the warm confines of my home--listening to the radio, watching PBS...
watching the dogs want to go outside (sort of)...
Here's to the Buffalo Bills, french vanilla coffee, yogurt coffee cake, and the warmth of home on a Sunday afternoon :)
