Update on my favorite topic to complain about - the weather: As you know from reading the blog, we have experienced some really wacky weather over the last two or three weeks - record ocean waves breaking on the coast, extreme high winds, massive rains, a 6.2 earthquake thrown in the mix, and now intense snowfall at sea level. Temperatures that usually hover in the low 50's (remember this is California) are now in the low 30's (night time colder) here on the coast for days on end and much lower just a mile or so inland. (Here) Yes, just another climate changing day in the Redwoods....
Moving onto tablescaping - this week's table is a perfect expression of cold weather. Pat pulled out plates we bought at Pier 1 a few years ago and quickly came up with this week's table.
