Cake & sun...yes, please.

Sue used to be my walking buddy before I moved an hour away.  Now we just eat cake together. Delicious and glorious cake. lol

What a surprise to have such a delicious tea-time today.
Sue's layer cake brought back memories of my grandmother's cakes with 
home-made jam in the middle. Those were wonderful times visiting gran, sitting in her big summer kitchen, drinking tea around the old wood stove.
I can still picture her sitting in her rocker, tea cup in hand and Maggie her tabby-cat curled up on her lap.
She'd say..."Oh, she's such a nuisance"
But she loved her so.

Annie got a little treat of milk.

Sue and I have been friends for only a few years
 and yet it feels like I've known her all my life.

Oh, you'll never guess.
It's.been.snowing. :(
But this morning the sun is shining again.

Will this winter never end? Geesh....

Maybe another piece of cake will help. ;-)

It's time to fill those feeders again. And knowing I won't have snow blowing in my face while doing that makes for a good start to the day.

Have a fun weekend, everyone.

hugs, Deb
