Good 33º Burrrrrr morning. Supposed to get 'sun' for a couple days and then snow predicted for Monday.
Crazy weather. Started snowing yesterday morning at 9am. It was 33º. "Sticking" wasn't happening. Warmed to 35º. Snowed all day, but nothing on the ground. All up the mountain several hundred feet above. As of right now the summit doesn't look inviting ... nobody going either direction except for a Trooper!
.... and we do have a little snow 'stuck' on the ground and the barn roof:
Such good news arrived yesterday... my friend James (Jimmy) Hellmold is being promoted to Assistant Sheriff (LASD) on December 30th and will command Field Ops Regions I, II, III, Detective Div, and Homeland Security Div. Wow! Congratulations Jimmy!!!!! So deserved. HUGS to you! Know your family is so proud of you. Me too!
This "suggestion" from my friend Cyndi Moreno (wife of ret Pete LASD) .... :o)
I made soup in the crockpot and had it for dinner on Wednesday and Thursday. Ingredients:
chicken stock (+ some left from cooking chicken thighs for Maggie), a can artichoke hearts + liquid, mushrooms, cabbage, mini raviolis, fettuccini, broccoli slaw, radishes, zucchini, leek, and green bell pepper. Cooked on low 2 hours.
Then.............. yesterday I added to the leftover soup a package of frozen baby peas, a can of Kirkland Roast Beef in beef broth (this is really good and makes great quick tacos or taquitos~!), and a carton of beef broth! OMGOOD!!!!
So, last night was a fire, soup, and more Hallmark movies!
In two days you are going to have to learn how to write "2013" ... (lol, I just wrote 2012.... !) I still write checks for stuff so this won't be easy for a while!
Today is the birthday of my nephew Andrew Plumbridge. He is 58 years old. Haven't seen him in probably 15 years. Sad, he is estranged from the family. He was always sweet and cute. Drugs ruin lives!
Here he is with my bro-in-law Bill and sister Marion...
