2nd cookie batch (oatmeal and cranberry) to share with family/close friends.
Russian Tea Cakes getting first coat of powdered sugar.
------------FIRST SNOW MIDDLE NH
Yep, I do miss this particular day at the start of winter. First snow. I always enjoyed that moment. Would always prompt me to fill the wood box in the garage and plan accordingly to weather reports.
Picture sent the same day from one of our very good friends who live a few miles away up there. 18" measured.
Flat bread below to accompany the soup. Yay!
I would always ask if she was accepting company for lunch when she would share what was cooking on her stove.
And yes, we would put on winter clothes and drive over for homemade soup/ bread and visit an afternoon away. But if they had an 18" snow fall, we would have stayed home.
Last 2 pieces of fried catfish. Catfish has been nagging me for a few months to pick up a few fillets at the local market. My wife was giddy when I told her what I had brought home for dinner.
REASON #1 WHY YOU SHOULD NEVER DROP YOUR LAP TOP ON TO THE CEMENT FLOOR.
A nostalgic look back in time. I remember some of these names and attempts.
Eleven degrees forecasted later this coming week. That is cold in anyone's book, but in east Texas it is just not necessary!! I have lemon trees to cover and keep from freezing. Cats need extra blankets and a small heater will be kept on in the shop. A cold snap for a few day as Christmas visits this coming weekend.
Son sent this picture on his 4th day of storm duty driving the roads of south west NH. Looking for outages, downed lines etc. Easy to understand how snow load on tree limbs can take down power line.
Surprised this year at the lack of Christmas card displays. Minimal at best and a gal working at one of my favorite stores was noticeably indifferent to not having ordered husband, wife, son, daughter and other assorted family Christmas cards. Her Christmas indifference was curious. I have not seen this before.
Locally, prime rib on sale through Tuesday. Still high, but it will be quite awhile before we see lower prices again. BOGO deals. If they look good, a couple two-bone roasts are in order.
Thanks for the visit this week. Days getting longer. The new year just around the corner.
