~ Waffles and Gravy ~ Eagles ~ Cherry Blossoms ~

Good 38ยบ morning.            
Yesterday, in a cooking mood, I made gravy from the chicken drippings, added milk, cream cheese, and the round of spices. Then I canned two jars of it for future use. Then I made some waffles, since it was waffle day, and added to the Bisquick and milk some shredded cheese and crumbled cooked bacon. I put some chicken gravy over all. Such a Southern treat!
I also watched the eagles on the nest in Iowa. The mother had left and dad was sitting on the three eggs. He was there 5 hours, then after much finger drumming and whining she returned. Probably getting her talons done! Here are 4 pictures.... first 2 of dad adjusting the eggs. Males like them in a straight line. Then mom comes and adjusts them into a circle.
She sits on the nest all night. He shows up in the
morning and takes over so she can have a feeding
break ... or go to the salon or lunch with the girls!

Today is 'tax day'. Yes, finally. Sigh. Hate doing this. I don't like paperwork. What a chore. I hope you all have a great Saturday!
Me thinks Tim is coming over today to work on the gate. It was pouring yesterday afternoon when he finished his other job and he said he was soaked from the rain. I told him to go home and take a hot shower and come back when it's not raining. HA. Like when will that be????
All I know. Nuff said. Ciao.
