We still had snow this morning.
Barb helped with chores...didn't take us long at all.
Abbe was communicating with Mustafa.
Sidney was in and out of the barn this morning.  Hardly came in the house all day.
As soon as I got in, I cut up chicken, peppers, onions and mushrooms and put them in a marinade.
Company for dinner tonight.

Lunch, a shower and off to drumming.
I was there from 1-almost 4:30.  Learned some new stuff today.
I am very interested in the bass parts.  Below is an example.  It is so hard to keep two different rhythms going at the same time....don't know how they do it.

Got home in time to finish cleaning the house, then I got the skewers filled up with everything that was marinated all day.
Got the lomain goin'....
Let the dogs out...no more snow....
Gary did a great job grilling the shishkebobs.

We started off with a cup of soup in the kitchen by the fire, then moved into the dining room for dinner.
Jenny made a great salad with clementines, onions, crumbly blue and an orange.
Nice to have her join us.
We always have a lot of laughs with Topper and Carol.
and it wouldn't be right if Topper and I didn't take pictures of each other taking pictures of each other.
Carol brought cookies for us and Jen's boys....
and a delicious frozen blackberry/chocolate pie.
Now it's time to call it a day.
Night all.


  1. What a lovely meal! All those veggies are making my mouth water!

  2. Gorgeous meal! Are there any leftovers? :)

  3. What is better than good friends, good music and good food?

  4. Perfect evening if you ask me--I love dinner with friends. Your dinner looks fabulous :)
