Here's a picture I snapped a couple of days ago. There wasn't a lot of snow but it usually doesn't last more than a day here because it isn't cold enough and the rain washes it away. This time we have had some really cold weather and the freeze lasted a few days. I thought it looked so pretty. Anyhow, it's raining now so it's all gone. But they are predicting more snow for today and tomorrow but we'll see. I made my Chex Mix recipe yesterday. It makes a huge amount. I also made gingerbread and I just have to roll out the dough and cut the gingerbread boys. I've never made it before so I am looking forward to that. Next I am making Snickerdoodles. My oldest grandson and I made them when he was little and he said the word so cute. I don't know if he will remember making them but I thought of him so I decided to make them. I may make a couple of more things too before I send them off to the boys. Whatever is left I'll give to my neighbors. I don't want this stuff laying around here calling my name to try just one. I am very weak when it comes to cookies. And they go down so easily with the lapband. And hubby doesn't need them, what with his diabetes. So off they go. I hope you are all ready for Christmas.
My husband and I both retired almost 9 years ago and moved to Oregon. We love it here. I had Lapband surgery in 2008 and I'm still trying to lose the last 20 pounds. I recently started quilting and I find it very rewarding and fun. I also love to cook and try new recipes.
