January 

   
 
What a delightful day we had today. 

The weather actually flirted with 40 and the winds were non-existent.The girls and I walked a lot to take advantage of the weather. It was my time of year:almost spring temperatures and no tourists! Granted both girls were on leashes, but we walked right down the middle of the street.

I managed to do some pitching of old stuff, walking it over to donation bin. It’s amazing how getting rid of stuff makes you want to do more.

Friday is tomorrow so housecleaning on the agenda, and a little baking too. Enjoy the lack of “Snowzilla.”

Cluck!

   
 
Here are some shots from our oven roasted chicken dinner tonight. I made some mashed potatoes, for something different, some organic mixed vegetables and some cranberries.

When we first got down here and I started the jobs with the bakery and ferry, I just couldn’t get the energy to muster together a decent meal like this,especially after the type of day I would have had,I really , although my mother always would say “Self praise stinks.”,am a decent cook. It is the joy of being retired that allows me to enjoy making a good meal.
