He was getting ready for a bike ride (because that is what he does, till it's too cold or too icy to attempt). And I approached my house, eager for an afternoon of art and homekeeping.
What a glorious walk! Big flakes of snow on the holly bush in Rick's yard...
The pines in my back yard -- tall, stately, and tipped with white...
Oak leaves, with big polka dots of snow.
Even the last of the outdoor plants had a bit of white on them.
And the bird house was tipped with white.
It has been a lovely weekend. Last night, my friend Holly welcomed us to her home for dinner (pictured here with Judy's husband, Dick.)
She and her husband, Tony (here with Judy and Rick) hosted a lovely dinner prepared by a culinary student at our community college.
Chicken curry, pork tenderloin, a couple of other lovely dishes... all wonderful.
Best of all, we celebrated good friends, good company, and good times before the hectic holiday season takes us in different directions.
It was simply divine.
