I don't function well if the temperature drops below 60F so I have been hibernating all day - alternating between standing over a hot stove and sitting by the fire.
To be honest, it's been bliss.
I've had a lovely view of Diva and the neighborhood children running around the back yard with the dogs. They've been having a "sleet"ball fight and loving life.
Last Sunday we attended a local bluegrass band concert at the assisted living facility where Engineer's grandparents are living. It was nice to spend time with Engineer's family.
We had a short work and school week so I got to spend an extra day with my peeps. I relish those days.
Diva had another book club meeting on Friday. The kids read "The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy" by Douglas Adams, discussed it over dinner, and watched the movie.
Earlier in the day though, my friend and I hit the jack pot at several estate sales. Love when that happens.
Then on Saturday, we had our first Bossier City Supper Club get together. The theme was "Rice" since Louisiana is the third largest producer of the crop in the United States. Our menu for the evening consisted of:
Apple Pie Moonshine Spiked Horchata
Bourbon Spiced Pork Tenderloin
Green Beans & Peppers
Pecan Wild Rice
Tropical Rice Pudding
Here's what we'll be eating this week:
Sunday - Out to Eat
