"Nature has no mercy at all. Nature says, "I'm going to snow. If you have on a bikini and no snowshoes, that's tough. I am going to snow anyway." ~Maya Angelou

Another snow day! That makes 5 so far this season...a little more than usual. I have this bad feeling they're going to start taking days back from our long Easter Weekend and our April Spring Break...

And I know I haven't played in a while, so here's a brand new Friday Feast:

Have you ever played a practical joke on anyone? If so, what did you do and who was your victim?

I'm not much of a jokester, but I do remember when my husband and I were first dating (maybe 2-3 months in), he called his older brother and told him that I'd gotten pregnant...there was this HUGE silence on the other end of the line, and then his brother started thinking through all these possible solutions, what they would tell their parents, etc. It was pretty funny.

What do your salt and pepper shakers look like?

I have a lot of pairs...right now they're tiny and silver. I like our ones made from mini Coke and Diet Coke bottles the best.

Where is the next place you plan to visit (on vacation or business)?

Scranton, PA: A book signing
Venice, FL: Visit my parents
Philadelphia, PA: A book festival
Cleveland, OH: Fun for me while hubby goes to a conference
Outer Banks, NC: Fun in the sun with a group of friends

(OK, that was probably more than you wanted to know, but staring at the snow falling outside my window, I had to think about the next few months of vacation, not just the next one!)

Main Course
What kind of lotion or cream do you use to keep your hands from getting too dry?

If anyone has a recommendation, I'll gladly take it! Right now I'm going back and forth between Vaseline Super-Intensive Lotion and Curel. Neither one does the job the way I wish it would.

Make up a dessert, tell us its ingredients, and give it a name.

Another snow day? must be getting boring!

Only cure I've found for dry chapped hands is a couple months in the sunny south during winter months!

Love, Mom

That dessert does sound delicious. As for lotion I'd recommened shea butter. I also suffer from super dry skin and it works for me.
