One a month?

 That seems to be about my average for creating a new blog post.  This one will take a glance at February.

The month began with the Lunar New Year!  This year is the Year of the Tiger.  Very cute, I think.  Previous years have included the Year of the Dog and the Year of the Ox.  I’ve missed a few, I know.  No pictures of this, but we celebrated with Egg Rolls (frozen) and Stir Fry.

Abraham Lincoln, I would surmise, never gave any thought to the development in later years of Lincoln Logs.  Our version involved pretzels.  After we completed the remodeling project, we had something like this…

Appropriate for the sweetest month….
Oh, yes!  Definitely the sweetest month!  Is there ever too much chocolate?

My favorite color tulips!

I cannot tell a lie….

This is NOT a cherry pie…

Actually, this was the first time to bake a Cranberry Pie, and it was a hit with The Husband!

Now, it’s time to blend some Mardi Gras with all of the February celebrating.  Mardi Gras is on Tuesday, March 1, just a week from tomorrow!  Uncertain how we will be honoring the day here.  In times past, there has been an attempt at a King Cake.  I’m not quite ready to tackle that again yet.  Shrimp Gumbo sounds like a better idea!

This has been a month for birthday celebrations among members of my family.  It has also been a month of great loss as several beloved friends are now gone.  We celebrate the joy, as well as honor the memories.

We are all weary of the pandemic, that is true.  Let’s hang in there together for awhile longer, trusting to see better days in the future.

Take care, and stay safe and well!
