5 thing Friday - books, spring, candles, cake, Bubbie

I've been trying to take some "down time" and not feel guilty about getting some reading done in the evenings.  But I need to make the most of my trips to the library since our sweet little neighborhood one is closed for remodeling.  This means I have to drive a bit out of the way and park in a huge lot and navigate a bigger library.  I know that sounds trifling, but I am not yet used to parking and walking far with only the cane.
But I figure the only way to get over that is to do it more often.  So, to the library I go, rain be damned.
Like everyone else here, I am ready for spring to "stick".  We get a couple of beautiful days, them blammo, its winter again.  It's been raining and dreary off and on the better part of the last seven days.  But that didn't stop me from putting a few springy things out.  I have been veeery good and stayed out of Hob Lob and Michael's, just using what I have.
Another example:  All the pinecones got put away for next year, and out came the moss balls.  Again, I am spending nothing.  But I would LOVE to eventually get some more of those battery operated candles that I can actually turn on without fear of burning my house down.  I've got my eye on some votive sized ones at Wal-Mart for Mabel.
We aren't eating enough fresh fruit before it starts looking rough.  These two apples and a few pears made a great cake.  Buttery, moist, and perfect with ice cream.  I will have to post that recipe eventually. Next time I have too many apples...or pears.  The week before I made banana bread, for the same reason.
This person continues to eat me out of house and home.  Even his hair grows at a ridiculous rate.  I have ordered him more tee shirts and tennies and school isn't out for 3 more months, so he has to take a break from his growth spurt.  Such a nice kid - doing so excellent in scouts and school and band, with a wickedly dry sense of humor, too.  I guess I'll keep on feeding him...
Happy Friday the 13th!

Things are blooming all over here, but of course with that comes the dreaded allergy season and the gosh awful pollen!
Hope you have a wonderful weekend.

I read all the time. I love it. I usually curl up on the couch with a good book, blanket, and a cup of coffee. It isn't long before a cat gets interested in what I am reading.My husband finally had to buy me a Nook. He got tried of have to make bookcases every time he turned around.
