Couldn’t ask for a more beautiful day
If only the wind would die down so we could enjoy the outdoors! It is WICKED out there!
This afternoon we did manage a grocery store trip to the little store here. Thank goodness for golf cart coverings!
Don’t forget your reusable bag!
Once home we played a round of Taboo
Hunger hit me hard at 5:00 and I filled a snack bowl with Chex Mix and Wheat Thins
6PM cocktail hour was filled with the usual samplings of interesting brews
I loved the Rogue Hazelnut Brown
Didn’t love the banana bread…
And will always love Matt’s Imperial Pumpkin!
Dad treated us to dinner at Ebb + Flo’s for seafood.
The fried food started with was excellent –
The hushpuppies and okra – both favorites!
The beers were also good – I shared with mom.
And since our whole family has just finished reading The Raw Shark Texts, we were all shocked to find a fish and a shark in the beers!
But sadly, my food was really bad. We’ve ordered this steamer in the winter before, but tonight it was just sad. Nothing tasted good at all. [Matt and I shared it]
And my salad had onions on it, and instead of making a new salad, the chef must have just picked the big ones off because I found about 5 inside the lettuce. Also a disappointment.
Once back at the Marsh Harbor, Andrew threw a party in his room for the Saints v. Falcons football game. Beer and chocolate!
I’ve got a bit of a headache (can’t seem to get hydrated after that run today – I’ve been on fire all afternoon) but I enjoyed a few Christmas treats: a bourbon ball, one of Larbs’s pumpkin cups and a bite of Candace’s gingerbread.
Old Baldy says goodnight
