Dusting of Snow ~ Anne & Led ~ Barbetta ~ JCRW Luncheon ~ Bouillabaisse

Good 33ยบ rainy snow on the trees on my mountain morning.

Brian called from his car, dropping Sami off at school, and Sami wanted to know if she could come over to Bobo's house. Brian asked her why and she said, "because Bobo has snow." LOL I told her it was still up too high but I'd let her know if it got down to the ground! Here is a couple pictures of the dusting the trees up on my mountain got so far.....

A couple of special occasions today... my dear friend from high school, Annalee (Carlin) Fortini and her man Led are celebrating their 44th wedding anniversary today. HAPPY ANNIVERSARY KIDS! What a glorious wedding you had... red carpeting and huge white Christmas trees in the church, our pretty green dresses and holly bouquets!
Here is the Fortini website...

.... and also from Wilson celebrating a birthday today is Barbetta (Hanson) Suttles....

(still a cutie!)

Yesterday I went to the JCRW luncheon. It's held at Twin Creeks, a retirement community. They have lovely apartments in the building where we have our luncheons and also individual homes surrounding it. The buffet table was set up...

My lunch was salad, roasted veggies, potato, and delicious ham! Also pumpkin pie that was to die for!

The North Medford High School Choir sang Christmas songs for us. Beautiful voices in those kids!!!

Here is a much simpler recipe....

This recipe looks fabulous (some amounts are in grams, etc so you would need a converter ... google has one)... I look forward to seeing more of Vicky's blog...
