Road Trip to Visit The Doctor

We had a very important appointment recently with a doctor. It wasn't the usual appointment in a doctor's office. It wasn't an appointment at a hospital. It wasn't for a checkup or for renewing a prescription. The symptoms we were experiencing were not the usual symptoms a doctor might hear. Our symptoms had been increasing and building for many years. They increased to a point where we had to hit the road to visit this particular doctor.  Our hearts were about to burst from these symptoms. For you see, we finally witnessed this little fellow

become a doctor. 

We are very proud of that little fellow!

Sad Little Pound Cake

I have baked pound cakes for many years. I usually have no trouble baking this particular recipe. Occasionally, the cake might fall in the center, or it might burn slightly along the edges, but I have never had this happen.
Poor Pound Cake
Sad little pound cake, isn't it? It completely fell apart when I was removing it from the pan. So, what does one do with this or rather with these chunks of cake? Simple.
Sliced Strawberries
Slice some South Carolina strawberries and make
Strawberry Shortcake

Yellow Haze

Spring was arrived. I know this not because of these....



Bradford Pear

but because of these and other trees.
Pine Pollen

The pollen count has been exceptionally heavy this spring.
Yellow Pollen Clouds

Yellow Pollen Clouds

So much pollen that it appears as a yellow haze, little puffs of yellow clouds with every little breeze. Achoo! Sniff, sniff!

Finished Wall Hanging Quilt

It is March, isn't it? Don't you think it is time the Santa quilt was put away?

This quilt should look better and more appropriate this time of the year than a Christmas quilt, don't you think?
