RAINY "TUESDATE"



Rainy day scones.  Woke up this morning to a wonderful refreshing rain coming down.  My plants on the balcony are so happy.  

The umbrella is drying as my dearest and I both had appointments for hair cuts this morning....we're all prettied up for Christmas.  So I'm back to short and easy and Don's beard neat and trimmed. 

This is usually our "TUESDATE" but with the rain, we decided to stay in and enjoy warm cranberry pecan scones (with drizzle of course).

  1. Sounds like a good choice, both staying in and the cranberry scones.

    1. It's still raining, so I had to move the plants back as I didn't want them to drown..haha.

      It was a good "stay home" day.

    1. Betsy, I will email you the recipe. It originally is my Apricot, White Chocolate, walnut scone. But now I use the basic recipe and add what ever I have on hand. Today it was dried sweet cranberries, and pecans. I have a small oven so I half the dough and make two smaller ones. Freeze half and eat half.

  5. So you ate drizzle instead of going out in it? MUCH better idea! :-)

    1. When we moved...I also had to downsize my plant collection. I had many "spider" plants, and chose this one to bring as it had the most babies...haha.

  7. Isn't the rain great - we are getting a lot up here in the mountains - I think the whole of California is applauding!

    Those scones look delicious. I'll look through your blog to see photos of your move.

    We have a Tuesday date night - well kind of - we use to go to the Stockade for Taco Tuesday but Mike really didn't care much for the food so he goes there and brings it home for me;) Enjoy the rain

  8. I've got to get a cut and color. I do my color at home and do my highlights at the beauty shop. My best friend is a hairdresser so I get a cut. I want to get my nails done too. My manicurist has been out with a newborn so I am in desperate need. Oh what we women have to do to be beautiful.

    1. So true. I've never colored my hair. Thought about going back to my original auburn but when I ask the gal to do it, she said, "Honey, women pay to get the natural highlights you have. So, it's easy... I do nothing but get it cut and a perm couple times a year.
      I do like to get a pedicure.

  9. Pecan cranberry scones sounds delightful. That's the best kind of Tuesdate.
    I'm glad it rained and made the plants so happy but I wish it had waited a week or so...
