Happy New Year to my beautiful family 🍾πŸ₯‚

Love this picture

On Monday we decided to have date day and go golfing. There is a beautiful course, Lake Havasu Golf course. It overlooks the mountains and lake. Ironically my older son, Seth and his sons went snow skiing.

So now at the other end of the country we were golfing….β›³

Well we finished the evening with Mexican food at one of our favorite restaurants, El Paraiso. Another great date with hubby!

New Year Day πŸ₯‚

Tonight New Year eve, David and I served dinner to about 40 people. The menu started with a Caesar salad, entree was Chicken Marsala or Salmon with a Korean BBQ spiced glazed. Dessert was a lemon cake and a raspberry drizzle. After dinner there was dancing, music by the live band The Iguanas.

One of the best events of the evening was a friend coming home from the hospital πŸ’–

Just Everyday

With Covid making a second wave we are still staying close to the RV. So if we can’t go out we make our cocktails at home with some of our favorite liquor.

Bloody Marys with JalapeΓ±o vodka!

The mountains were actually beautiful gold color in the morning.

In the afternoon we took a ride and even came upon a faint rainbow.
