Kenai Blizzard

     Had a great day today, even with a bit of a blizzard! Left work just south of K-Beach/Bridge intersection at 1:15pm to head to Kenai to pick up my dear 85-year-old friend, Edna, for lunch at Veronica's. We tried the day before and they had sold out of quiche by noon; so, I "reserved" a piece for today! (Only in Alaska?) We had a lovely salad with sesame marinated cabbage and polenta quiche. Diane (the owner) gifted us with a yummy little chocolate macaroon with coconut filling. Thanks, Diane. Meanwhile, the blizzard didn't "go away," as I returned to work.
     Then this evening, my friend Jaci came over for asparagus and a half baked potato and brought me the beautiful bouquet of flowers. Jaci said this was the best time to go shopping because there weren't many people out and about!

Karen so happy that you are getting out and enjoying that snowy weather. Isn't it wonderful being inside and enjoying a cozy meal and flowers looking outside at the beauty though. Blessings to you!

Blizzards obviously don't phase you for driving! In Quebec we drive through snowstorms all the time.

What a lovely day you had with good friends, good food and a beautiful gift of flowers!

Oh, Karen! You need to come south! We had an absolutely beautiful day in Phoenix today ~ about 70-degrees and the bluest of blue skies! Lots of Canadians visit us ~ you should too ;o}

Easy for me to say....as I sit in my southern chair....the blizzard looks wonderful. Beautiful salad and flowers with dear friends to complete the day!
