I have had a very nice weekend so far. After picking up our little vehicle yesterday, I went and had a hair cut and a little color enhancement (VBG). Then I did a little fabric shop browsing and came home and read a very good book Light on Snow by Anita Shreve. It was one of those marathon reads where I started reading in the afternoon and was finished by the next day. It was absorbing and it made me remember and reflect, partly about being young and on the verge of womanhood, and partly about what it was like to live in a place where winter can kill you if you don't have the proper shelter. (I am a Midwestern girl with southern roots, disguised as a southern Californian. The costume fits pretty well after 30 years...)

Today my husband made me a lovely brunch, our version of Huevos Rancheros. In our version, the eggs are scrambled with jalapenos and sweet bell pepper, served with a side of bacon. The tortillas are the good ones, not the supermarket junk. To eat, take a tortilla, spread with refried beans, add scrambled egg and bacon, wrap and eat. Add extra salsa as desired. Yum! Oh yes, and at our age the meal requires both Beano and Pepcid AC, but it is well worth it. We will discuss resuming the low cal, low fat, low cholesterol, low interest diet tomorrow.

I'm telling you Jen that we were meant to be friends. That breakfast sounds fabulous. Yummamente. And I am going to look for the book on audio so I can listen while I work.

Thanks for the book recommendation! I just love it when I get a day to read all I want.
