March Is Going Out Like A Lamb........

March 2011 wasn't a very good Month for me.  Just little things like turning another year older, buying a different vehicle that just didn't work out the way I was hoping, and then ending up being sick for a week.  LOL, I sure hope that is my three events all over with for the rest of 2011.

In between, from what I thought weren't the greatest, I had a lot of great moments which are the ones we need to focus on.  I had Aiden for a whole week, there were puppies born, I have had lots of great interaction with family and friends, and I did start this 'blog'.  Lots of really good things that overpower the few rotten apples in between.

My day started off really good today when I opened an email from a dear friend, who had sent me a Youtube clip, while watching I was laughing so hard I had tears running down my face.  Now that is a great way to start off one's day:

 
This is clean,so not to be frightened off by the word "naked".
 
I must also admit, even though I felt I was running around like a chicken with it's head cut off, I did manage to accomplish a few things I had set out to do yesterday.  I cleaned my bedroom, folded two loads of laundry, and really cleaned the upstairs bathroom.  Rob's bathroom downstairs needs done, but I get scared to go into there at times and have to "will" myself to do it, lol.  I also went to have coffee with my girlfriend and made a pork chop dinner.  Whew....and you would think after all of that I would have slept all night!
 
Still in the back of my mind I am still thinking the nice weather will be arriving and I will want to be out in the gardens, so I had better get this Spring Cleaning business out of the way before that happens, or Spring cleaning in my household will be renamed "Fall/Winter Cleaning" which has been known to happen before.
 
Speaking of pork chops, I have a very good Marinade I have used for years for either pork or beef:
 
1/4 cup oil
2 tbsp lemon juice
1 tbsp soya sauce
1 tbsp Montreal Steak Spice
 
Marinade either overnight or from first thing in the morning.  The marinade I use for chicken is Kraft's Zesty Italian.  Both I find are very good & add flavor to the meat after being on the BBQ.
 
I did ask Rob if he would BBQ last night, but I was told it was too cold.  Hummp to that, before I know it, it will be too hot!  LOL.
 
I actually think March is going to go out like a Lamb, since the sun has been shining these past few days, and flurries have not arrived here in my part of Ontario. 
 

Today:

Sunny. Increasing cloudiness this afternoon. High 6. UV index 4 or moderate.
 

Tonight:

Cloudy. Low minus 2.
 

The weather for the day isn't looking too bad.

I was thinking about doing the new Layered Lemon Dessert yesterday from the new Spring Kraft What's Cooking Magazine, but ran out of time (my intentions are always good).  However I had taken the cream cheese out of the freezer, so I think I will earmark that for tomorrow's agenda.  That way if the puppies have any visitors, I will have something to offer them should they also want to visit with us and have a coffee.

I suppose I should tear myself away, now that I have finished my first cup of coffee, and think about getting on with my day.  There are still a few more everyday chores to be done before I restart that dirty word cleaning again (Spring).

Off and running with sunshine coming through my windowpanes........Just North of Wiarton & South of the Checkerboard.
