One More Inch of Rain ~ Snow ~ Rain for California ! ~ Dogs Alone ~ JoAnn Kirk ~ Then and Now Photos ~ GoGi Winery ~ Guacamolé Rice Cake ~ Infused Olive Oil ~ Hummus Wrap


Good 39º POURING rain morning! Dude and Bruiser went out for their morning quickie pee and came right back in, both soaked! Joy.
After I finished my blog yesterday I looked out and it was snowing! Just a little came down...


Then it warmed from 35º to 37º and the snow turned to rain. Dude and Bruiser watched out the door....

With the pretty constant light rain yesterday we got 1/4". The big storm came in somewhere around 4am and since then we got another 3/4" !! California.............. it's coming your way!!!

Cats are not the only ones you should not leave home alone with a Christmas tree! Dogs can be a joy too!

Saw a TV show last night and they said Kurt Russell and his wife Goldie Hawn have a winery... http://gogiwines.com/
A little out of my price range.


Man oh man, he should lose the beard!!!

For a snack yesterday I put some guacamolé on a cheddar rice cake and sprinkled chopped pecans on top. OMGOOOD!

I ran out of my infused olive oil, so made more. I store it in these bottles...

I use the dried garlic, onion, and this time Chipotle crushed peppers...

 After filling the bottles with olive oil I put it in a pot and heat, using a thermometer, to 170º. That is just about when it starts to send bubbles up from the bottom.
Then I added in 3 lids of this garlic, three lids of the onion, and two lids of the chipotle crushed pepper. Then it sits until completely cool.
When cool I put a coffee filter in the strainer and let it all drain and then pour into the bottles. 

Dinner last night was a hummus wrap. I got these at Costco..

VERY tasty, and good for you!!!!

Then it was a roaring fire in the wood stove, chair, wine, and a Hallmark Christmas movie... The Best Christmas Party Ever. Cute.
All I know. Nuff said. Happy Monday. Ciao.

Friday night John and I had Double Doubles at In & Out. Lucky us, huh? :)

Yes Kurt Russel did lose the beard. He was on The View talking about the 2nd Amendment. He was terrific! He's a Libertarian. Those gals weren't nasty to him which was a miracle. Whoopie needs to learn how to speak tho. She said at the end .....I'm witchu! Lordy!

I couldn't tell by your rain map if it's coming all the way down to So. Cal or not. We got plenty on Saturday night. Nice.

We're getting an In-N-Out in Grants Pass... only 9 miles away, unlike the one in Medford which is 25 miles away!

Glad Kurt lost the beard. Whoopie can pound sand for all I care. She's an idiot!!

At least the rain will go to Shasta Lake!!! xo

As for Whoopi, you can take the woman out of the ghetto but you can't take the ghetto out of her! That's a fact!

Merry Christmas!

No matter what the weather is... your piece of land looks like heaven.

The one man who looks better with beard as he aged than not- Sean Connery. May be it works because it is groomed, but effortlessly so. The problem with Kurt Russell's beard in the one photo it is too stylized... like for a Wild West movie role.

But what a fantasy to live- to own a vineyard, work it and ride horses.

Jane Fonda has one attribute I admire- her hair. It would be very disappointing if she went out with it like Goldie's life-long companion.
