Lake Geneva is beautiful in all seasons, but I like winter best.
We usually go to Starved Rock State Park to see the eagles that roost along the river on Superbowl Sunday, but since we had just visited in the fall, decided not to. I missed our pals but we'll meet soon to celebrate our winter birthdays like we've done since we were teens.
I never took a photo of our football festivities, but here's what we ate. Tacos and fajitas, taco rice. Mike made the peppers and chicken for the fajitas, also Amanda and Mike brought little Smokey sausages they cooked in their crock pot with barbecue sauce and cherry jelly. Jon and Charlotte brought their blender and made margaritas. Chips, salsa and quesso dip. Ice cream cones or donuts for dessert. Always great to have the kids home. Kris and Doug and Penny were home since Kris has been sick. We missed you guys.
Seven years ago I wanted to do something brave to mark my 55th birthday, and this blog, At Home in English Valley was that brave thing. Seven years later I am still at it, chronicling my life. I am amazed that I've kept it up, and can't believe that you dear reader take the time to stop by...
I thank you for your friendship.
Thanks so much for your kind comments. Welcome to a new follower.
Enjoy this beautiful day.
