Today is Dia Del Oso at Baylor University (founded in 1845)... a day where everyone gets off class for no reason and celebrates "the day of the bear." I wish big-girl life had random, no reason days off.

The baby ducks across the street hatched and here they are! These sweet things are in the front yard every morning and are my favorite to watch. We are now just waiting on the eggs in our backyard to hatch... mama duck is sitting on them oh so patiently.

I have never used my popover tin, so it is getting tested out and broken in this weekend for sure. Neiman's is famous for them and we have eaten our fair share of them over the years at work. With some strawberry butter and mimosas (and Ryan home!), I'll feel like I'm dining at the Zodiac on Saturday morn... I can't wait!
Beat eggs slightly, and then beat in flour, milk, butter and salt until just smooth; being careful not to overbeat. Fill custard cups 1/2 full.
Bake at 450 degrees for 20 minutes. Decrease oven temperature to 350 degrees and bake for 15 minutes more. Immediately remove from cups and serve warm.

I re-read the Giving Tree 4 times last night... I know everyone has read it, but it is quite possibly one of my favorite all time books. Shel Silverstein's masterpiece is now become a staple coffee table book at the Frazier household.
To give and give until you think you can give no more is absolutely beautiful to me. I saw it through my mother & father for 25 years, and now, as a wife, I get to see it through Ryan. It is the most sincere picture of love that I can possibly think of.
To love someone so much you would give it all. To love someone so much you think of them way before you would even fathom yourself. To recognize their needs before they even know they need them met...
“For true love is inexhaustible; the more you give, the more you have. And if you go to draw at the true fountainhead, the more water you draw, the more abundant is its flow.” - Antoine de Saint - Exupery
That my friends, is Christ's love... and that love embodied is just a little slice of heaven on earth that I have been so overwhelmingly showered with.

"Love is not and equation, it is not a contract, and it is not a happy ending. Love is the slate under the chalk, the ground that buildings rise, and the oxygen in the air. It is the place you come back to, no matter where your headed." - Jodi Piccoult
*For those who read way too much:
I just finished devouring JP's latest masterpiece,"Handle with Care." If you have not read any of Piccoult's books, I highly recommend. She has been one of my all- time favorite authors for the past 4 or 5 years, own all her books & talk about her way to much. She writes with such emotion & honesty, I am sucked in every time. The topics are a tad controversial, so be warned.

3) Continue my search for a mini lemon tree. (at a resonable cost.)
4) Make my chocolate chip bananna bread for our house guests!
5) Keep waiting for/checking on our baby ducklings in our backyard. The momma sits on the eggets and the daddy constantly swims circles in our pool on guard. I sorta love it.
6) I must admit, I can't wait to spring clean the Frazier home this weekend and play in my craft room, if it only looked like this... it is sick that I love to clean.
8) Plant a few pots of cherry tomatos... I keep putting this off, & now they will not yield fruit until July, or so my gardening mentor Sarah Mac advises.
9) Ride my bike and hope someone answers my reply on freecycle.org for a used one that they might want to donate to lil ol' me.
