A Woodland Forest Christmas

Boy, it was tough not to share this with you before now.....but I feel like there's some sort of law out there that says that even if circumstances and busy schedules force you to decorate for Christmas even before Thanksgiving.....heaven forbid....there's no way you can let anyone know!

Well, that's exactly what happened with us this year.

Winter Wonderland.....WHAT?

Saturday on the mountain top it was nearly 70 degrees. In late November.
 
What??????????

Mid November On The Mountain Top

It rained cats and dogs yesterday.
 
All. Day. Long.
 
By the time I was heading home from work, the rain was turning to ice pellets, hitting my windshield. I was chilled to the bone, and couldn't wait to mix a cocktail and sit by the fire.

The Most Amazing Split Pea Soup...and Conquering My Fear

Growing up, we never ate split pea soup. I'm not sure why, but I never so much as sampled it until I was an adult, working in restaurants.
 
The first time I tried it, the soup was served with sliced hotdogs and greasy croutons floating on top.
 
At the young age of 20, that was ok with me.
 
Now? Not so much.

This & That

In the wake of the most...shall I say, INTERESTING...election in history - most of the country is still reeling over the results.

Yesterday was quite the day.

I'm glad the election is in the past, but I'm afraid for our future.

Meanwhile, on our little mountain top, life goes on.

I'm Craving Cozy

Our cold weather has returned, and there's a chill in my bones today. My fingers are stiff as I'm trying to type this post.
 
I'm glad it's the end of the workweek, and I can't wait to spend some time in my cozy house this weekend.

The Food Fight

As most of you know, I'm a definite foodie. 

I wake up in the wee hours planning what I'm cooking the next day.
