Luck of the Irish

The leprechauns brought us 6″ of snow today!

It is beautiful, I must admit. But everyone I talk to, and even the plants, are ready for spring. How do I know the plants are ready?? Take a look:

My crocuses were popping up just 2 days ago.

I’m so ready for spring that I had convinced myself that this has been the longest winter ever. But when I did some digging out of curiosity, I discovered that we had snow last year on the 25th of March! And in 1990, it snowed April 6th!! OK, I’m calling on my Irish ancestry to throw a little luck my way. No more snow (knocking on wood right now). I want spring to spring-a-ding-ding into action (thanks Tigger!).

To celebrate pi day and St. Paddy’s, I decided to try the Apple Pie with Kale and Lemon Pastry from the Veggie Desserts blog. It’s delish! And not too sweet (I used less sugar than the recipe calls for) and you wouldn’t know the kale is an ingredient by tasting it.

Baking is one of my favorite things to do on a snowy day. I’m thinking about making biscuits. I know what you’re thinking. They aren’t exactly healthy. But they are a comfort food lovingly made by my grandmother. My Dad can whip up a mean batch of biscuits too! We’ve been known to take photos of our nicely risen “cat eyes.”

Here’s to a relaxing snow day (the last one of the season, fingers crossed) filled with piano playing, knitting, and baking. What’s your favorite snow day activity? Are you ready for spring?
