We have had unusually warm weather here in Texas...
I just hope the trees and plants don't get fooled...


We are having a Mardi Gras themed party...
for my Daughters birthday this weekend....
hubby is making gumbo...
I'm making a beans and rice dish....
we have beads..masks...purple...green...gold...
every where...

I got a sad call this afternoon...
a friend of the family passed away last night..
it was a real shock...she lost her husband last year....
my Mom had just spoken with her on Tuesday...
she was upbeat....
she was only 56....
Good bye Sharon...we had a lot of laughs....
a lot of fun memories....

So sorry about your friend. Life throws us some awful shocks at times.

I always hope the trees don't get fooled too. Our winter has been pretty much non-existent here.

May I come for gumbo?

Lovely photos today- I like the shadowy feel of the tree branches against the sky.
