SNOW! ~ Toys For Tots ~ Sunday Football ~ Allison Voors ~ Jennifer's Keeper/Heaven/Sugar Fox/Bridey ~ Lobster Cakes ~ How To Be A Cat


Good 34º snowy morning! Yes, snow! Poured and poured rain all day and into the night. We got 3" by then! About 3am it got quiet. Had no idea it was snowing!!!
Dude is checkin' it out!



Brian texted me this of his front yard....

Roseburg got quite a bit as well as Ashland...
Not much traffic over the Siskiyou Summit!
And Hilt looks messy too!

Got these at Costco for Brian's collection box of Toys for Tots..... snuggy plush blankets with stuffed animal pillows and two Elf On The Shelf boxes with toy elf, puzzle, and coloring book. Now I'm thinking I should have gotten one of those plush blankets and pillow for me!

Football today:

Yesterday a quick trip over to Jennifer's. She requested  a case of her favorite wine from Costco, so when I was there I got it for her. I told her I'd bring it over. I had dropped off two of the bottles at her work, since lifting the whole case was not possible... two bottles she said would tide her over til I came by yesterday! Driving there in the pouring rain..
 
We sat with a glass of wine and chatted and enjoyed her sweet animals... Keeper ... he's looking at me with that, "got another treat for me?"
Heaven ...
Sugar Fox (watching Mike out the window) ...
and Bridey ...

Dinner was lobster cakes. Get these at Safeway. Really good!!!
Bake 400º 16 minutes....
I like the tarter sauce and they come with a buttery dipping sauce....



PERFECT!!! Soooooo good. Drooling thinking about the other two for tonight! Or, maybe lunch!
Oh yes, Bruiser does the same thing! On my mouse and mouse pad!!!

All I know. Nuff said. Happy Football Sunday. Ciao.
