Terry and I are celebrating on our own here at the Aerie. (Well, alone except for the four cats.) Terry prepared a nice ham yesterday and a leg of lamb today. We'll be eating leftovers all week! She also baked a three layer cake--from scratch!--and iced it with vanilla icing and sprinkled it with coconut. With the babka she/we made the other day we've had some good eatin'!
The weather that had been so nice the end of the week to a turn to the north again and we've had clouds, sun and finally snow today. It should end before 4 PM but we've already got--at 1:15 PM--almost an inch of snow on the ground. That would be the same ground that a half dozen Robins were hopping about on as they searched for insect/worms at 9:30 AM.

The good news is that the major league baseball season gets underway tonight when the St. Louis Cardinals play the Chicago Cubs...in Chicago...at night...in early April. At least, this time, the weather will cooperate as it's supposed to be in the 50s and clear in Chicago.
