I'm Alive, I Promise!

I am so bad, I know. I apologize. I have photos from everywhere to share and I just keep pushing them aside. What is up with that?  Yes, Easter is around the corner, so you KNOW I'm decorating! I found these wonderful chicks stashed in the basement. Bought them at Harrod's this summer (on the 1/2 off table) and completely forgot about them. They are tooooo cute! (Note the Oregonian rocks I carried home?)

Earlier in the week, we got slammed with more storms. I noticed the doves hunkered down on the bird feeder and saw the storm coming (round II). The wind started whipping and I went to get something to tie the bird feeders down with and . . . 

Boom!  By the time I got back to the door, a wall of water hit. Literally. We lost shingles on the roof which I am still finding in the yard. Thank goodness I had already made an appointment for our roofer to come out and do some other work. Lord knows what's going on up there now!
We were so enamored with pancakes for dinner in Portland, we made them again. This time, I made fried pears. 
YUM! And yes, I'm soooo fat!

Recipe for 2:

1 pear
1 T butter
1 T honey
1/4 t cinnamon
1/4 t lemon and/or orange zest
spec of nutmeg

Easy peasy. Enjoy!

Welcome back! Pancakes ... I've been wanting pancakes ... apple almond pancakes to be precise! :D :D :D

That chick is adorable! And thanks for sharing the pancake recipe -- this one sounds too good!

I agree, that chick is the sweetest thing I've seen in a long while.

Thank you for the recipe. It sounds so good. I love pears, and the honey is a nice touch.

So glad that you've enjoyed our part of the world. I'm looking forward to seeing what all the future will hold for you, Rosemary. It's very exciting to think about!
