Good to see you back querida Joey! Please stick around, or I may be forced to put you in a headlock.

I would like that dear Marysol ... a chance to meet you in person! Yes, I have been very naughty of late regarding my blogging. But to post daily on FB with all my 'Ho-Hum' life nonsense. ((hugs))

I just had salmon the other night, one of my favorites. However, I am the only one who eats fish in my house, so the recipe sounded delicious.

Hi Eileen ... thank you for stopping by. I have been very remiss in my blogging ... life has a way of taking hold tightly :) Always a joy to hear from you and visit your lovely site. (Yes, the salmon is good!)

Thank you, Karin, and yes indeed ... spring is right around the corner! Love my primrose ... they do me fine inside for many months and then again planted outside where they are even happier! :0)

Those bright little primrose at the grocery sure do provide some cheer just when winter is really dragging on!
