It is now three hours later since I logged onto the computer and have been spending all this time catching up with everyone. 🙂
We are having a wonderful vacation. For Christmas dinner hubby and I broke out the good china and had a nice little dinner by candlelight at home. After trying Kim’s cranberry sauce recipe, I will never buy canned cranberry sauce ever again! It was that good! We have been snacking on the leftovers all week.
On Tuesday we drove up to Flagstaff with the dog in tow. There wasn’t as much snow there as last year but it was still so much fun. We ate at a place for lunch called Alpine Pizza which was featured on the Travel Channel not that long ago. I thought it was ok. Nothing to write home about really. Abby enjoyed playing in the snow. There’s so much sniff and dig at when you are a dog. She was one tuckered out pooch by the end of the day.
Apparently we got out of Flagstaff just in the nick of time as they were just blanketed with 2 feet of snow. The freeway was closed in both directions.
We finally got a charger for the camera battery and I’m hoping to post some pics we took over the week when I have more time. We first purchased the wrong charger and needed to return it, which we did on Monday. We bought the right one and then lo and behold, I was cleaning the house today and found the one we had originally lost located behind the cushion of the fainting sofa in the Girl-Cave. Isn’t that always the way? I’ve since thrown out the receipt for the charger but kept the packaging. Hopefully they’ll be able to take it back because it wasn’t cheap.
We are joining friends for New Years Eve tomorrow night. They are preparing a formal dinner so this should be fun. I am making Margy’s Grand Marnier truffles and a chocolate stout cake made with Guinness Ale for the event.
We’ve had to break out the winter jackets as of late A cold front has moved through and the temps didn’t get out of the 40s all day. Some places in the valley around Phoenix even got snow today. Not us though. But man, it is cold! I’ll have to remember this when it is 110+ degrees outside.
I wish you all a very happy and safe New Year! I also look forward to reading your posts as the year progresses. God bless.
