Christmas in the Sierra's 2006
Yesterday afternoon hubby and I ventured down to Golden, about 1 hour drive from us, to have dinner with some good friends. The weather was clear, the roads ice-free(thankfully)and the traffic extremely light. We purposely left early to avoid rush hour, because I do not enjoy traffic and since we made good time, we got to stop at one of our favorite antique stores-Armadillo's.
The store is huge and all I can say is that if money were no object we would always walk away with some new treasured antique. As it is, we really do just love walking the isles and browsing.
We then headed to our friends house and had a wonderful dinner. O.k. I will confess that I am still adjusting to baking here and my dessert had a bottom crust not fully baked. We will now purchase an oven thermometer to check the temp because I'm beginning to think it doesn't heat up to the full temp. and I really want to figure this out. After dinner, we played a new game-a dice game called Greed, but we were told that it has several different names. It was so fun and we are anxious to introduce it to our kids. Last week we played Tripoey with everyone; we've played that for many years so this new game will be a welcome addition. Our friends even sent us home with a puzzle for the holidays and cold weather.
Today we head over to our daughter's, C; I am trying to get to her house once a week, at the minimum, to help out with the new baby and spend time with the grandkids. I think hubby is going with me because our boys would not be too happy if I came alone. Our weekend seems to be filling up quickly and the next week looks booked already.
Our weather today is supposed to be in the 30's and tomorrow is supposed to hit the 40's-we'll feel like it's spring if it gets warmer than that.
Have a blessed and joyous weekend!
