Rose Parade ~ Ducks Win Rose Bowl ~ Biscuit Waffles

Good 34º-should-be-sunny-day-but-very-very-foggy-right-now morning.  Got a few drops of rain yesterday. Never really warmed up. Maybe hit 50º for 5 minutes when the sun came out of hiding.

I love the way the clouds drift through the trees....


Kristen, Alex, and Jack went to the Rose Parade. Got a good spot at Sierra Madre and Walnut. Enjoyed the day...

Dinner at Johnny Rocket's afterwards.

I went into town and dropped some stuff off at Brian's office.

Then picked up a sandwich,chips,and cookies at Subway next door to B's office. Stopped by Bill and Jeannie's to see Chaka Kune and give her a treat.... and get kisses!!! Slurp..

....admired their view...

....had a glass of wine with Jeannie and chatted for a few... Billy ensconced in football. (Yeah Ducks!)

I just love their shiny chrome "hemmets" !
Great game. Beautiful day in Pasadena.

On the way home there was more red lights on the road. This time only a fire truck...

Came home, started a fire in the wood stove, poured a wine, ate sandwich, Harley took over my chair, Maggs napped on the floor...

Now these sound good and EASY! Gonna make some this morning and will let you know.
