The whole world is a series of miracles, but we’re so used to them that we call them everyday things. – Hans Christian Anderson
1. According to Weatherbug, it was 31 deg. At dawn in the Tri-Cities this morning at dawn. With the wind it felt like it was 22 deg. But even with the cold, there was no snow on the ground, even though it was snowing when we got back to the hotel last night. It made me really happy that I didn’t have to go outside until noon or so. It warmed up to 39 in the afternoon, and it’s back to 33 now.
2. Waiting for dinner at Watters Minor’s house. Appetizers of a charcuterie platter and shrimp cocktail.
I’ve already had a half bottle of wine. Central Washington vintage.
3. The kitchen cleanup crew as Erika Watters functions as chef extraordinary.
4. We had turkey, and ham,
Raw cranberry salad
Green bean casserole, macaroni and cheese, fried cauliflower, and wild rice.
5. And for dessert we had apple pie and pumpkin pie and (not shown) cheesecake.
There were LOTS of leftovers. I’ll take a little bit of turkey and ham, and some cranberry salad home with me. A wonderful dinner was had by all.
How about you? What made you happy today?
