Just for Fun

Not much to blog about food-wise here, so just for fun, here are a few more photos of our only significant snowfall this year. The window screens sort of muddle up a couple of them - I wasn't motivated to stand outside!

A view of the sunrise out our front living room window.

The view off our office/guest room balcony.

The view out of our bedroom window.

And finally, going full circle, a view of the sunset in our backyard.

It's been a challenge to drive out here. Although we both grew up on the East Coast with all kinds of weather and terrain, after living in Texas for 3 years and then Indiana for 9, we got used to driving in flat terrain. Indiana certainly had the snow, but very few hills and we lived close to major roads that were plowed quickly and frequently. Even when we lived in PA for 10 years, we didn't have to deal too much with hills - we lived on a busy street that was easy to navigate during bad weather. Not so here! It's fairly nerve-wracking just getting out of our development! After about 2 miles, though, we hit a more major road, but those two miles - coming in and going out - can be quite adventurous. I think next year we'll invest in some snow tires!

I'll be back tomorrow or Sunday with a recipe recap for January.


  1. Alysha, it's beautiful! What a pretty space to live in.

  2. Hi Erika. Yes, we fell in love with the view. Now if only we could get the view INSIDE the house to look as nice. ;-) So many ideas, so little money............. :)
