Good 38º cloudy morning. Thought I had heard rain in the night, but apparently just a figment of my middle of the night imagination! Dang. So............... we'll see if this comes true:
Boy howdy, poor New York with that horrendous storm!!!
PICTURE OF THE DAY:
Climbing goats in Morocco ... glad I don't have any of these!
My friend Vivia, back in New York (hope you guys survived that storm!) has a daughter, Julie, who is a Sgt on NYPD and will be retiring in a few years. She has a business of infused oils. Check it out.
Their oils are organic from California. They have Gorgeous Garlic, Luscious Lemon, Red Hot Habañero, and Wild Mushroom Mayhem... Great Christmas gifts!
I ordered one of the Wild Mushroom Mayhem. Can't wait to try it! Should be here soon. Love the cans they put it in!!

I posted this a few years back and it still makes me laugh! Less than a minute long...
This is the funniest pursuit ever! Thanks DanP! Made me laugh. On the other hand, I hope that beeotch (endangering lives, smashing poleece cars) went to jail for a long time!!!
Later I was cleaning out a cupboard in my kitchen. Getting rid of the bread making machine and the coffee press. So far nobody wants the bread machine (with manual and recipes) but Turk wants the coffee press. Guess the bread machine will go to the Salvation Army Store!
More will be leaving the cupboards in the very near future.
Dinner was salad and another one of those Grands stuffed biscuits (from the blog yesterday). A fire in the wood stove, TV, and a nap in the chair! Ahhhhh.......
All I know. Happy Hump Day. Ciao.
