Snow Day

We woke up on New Year's Day to about two inches of snow on the ground.  While the base of the Napa Valley doesn't get any snow, we do get some once or twice a year up here in the surrounding mountains.  Arrow, who adores the snow in Tahoe, was appropriately thrilled to see the snow on his own turf.  I believe it was a fortuitous way to start 2011.

Oh, and last but not least, here is my signature cherry pie.  The recipe comes from my mother's mother.

So I guess you could have just skipped Tahoe and stayed home for the snow! :) Oh and can you overnight some of the cherry pie to San Antonio!

Beautiful photos of the blue jay!~ We have one who apparently got blown down off the mountain and who now takes up residence in our neighborhood. Actually, he's a scrub jay. Boy, is he LOUD! And bossy! But, we love him! He's been here now going on two years.
