We woke this morning to a light blanket of snow! It lay lovely on tree and bush and lawn, but kindly on streets and highways that busy commuters had to traverse.
I took my camera when I went out to the street to get the newspaper.
Snow on the roses.
Frosting on the Wind Spinner.
We had a busy morning, Tom and I, setting up for our lunch guests. This group is from my old school, the McMicken Lunch Bunch.
We usually meet at a restaurant once a month, but I have been hosting the Christmas lunch in recent years. While several of our retired friends couldn't make it (we missed you, DeeDee and Bev), we did have two "active duty" friends who were former colleagues. Chris is now the principal of the school where Jill teaches and where the grandkids go to school. Cathleen now works at the administration building.
I made a big pot of turkey soup, and provided rolls, bread and the dessert. The rest was pot luck.
Cookie or fruit cake, anyone?
We had a great visit and I did some catching up with some people I hadn't seen for a while.
There is still soup left over. Jill and the kids get out of school for the holidays today. They will be over for dinner.
