Impish Strategy of a Baby

Or what to do when caught in current favorite past-time
Give cute, cheesy smile when discovered 
Make innocent expression with soft brown eyes 
 play peek-a-boo with Pop-Pop to melt hearts
Explain the situation in sweet baby talk
 Give purpose to the misbehavior
Illustrate the fun of playing in water
do this dozens of times each day

Remember my birthday friend from my last post...
She is Anni's Grammy!
Three generations of friends.
I'd say that is pretty special.

Birthday Lunch with Dear Friends


 Getting together with the dearest of friends is always a blessing and a delight.
Celebrating birthdays with these precious ladies makes each added year much easier to accept.

Part of the autumn themed menu included this Ina Garten recipe using butternut squash tossed with a warmed cider/mustard vinaigrette.

Oh, yes... as did many of you, we had snow all day Saturday.
Here are a few photos as it covered the colorful autumn leaves still on the trees.
 Most unusual to get snow in October in these parts.
