Commercials show donuts as the perfect food to destroy your diet, but do you remember how fun they were when you were a child.  You could eat them by taking a huge bite all the way to the hole, or loop them over your index finger and eat them in a circle.  My grandfather always recommended eating the hole first.

Grandpa loved to buy and share donut holes with us - glazed, cake with white powdered sugar or rolled in chocolate sprinkles.  Watch out!  Don't inhale the powder sugar.

My father on the occasions that he took me to school would stop at Lee's donuts to buy his favorite chocolate cake donuts with chocolate frosting.  He would buy me one with sprinkles.

And do you remember when Albertson's first moved to  town.  They had a donut machine that would make warm donuts while you watched.  Warm cake donuts with cinnamon and sugar.

I think on my way to work, I will stop to get a donut.  My favorite is a sugar donut.  Then I think that I will take a huge bite all the way to the hole.

Just so you know ~  I had my usual bowl of whole grain oatmeal for breakfast.  Oh, I wish I had thought to add sprinkles.

White Christmas ?

A white christmas is not in the forecast for Ogden Canyon.  Sunshine and blue skies are forecast along with cold temperatures.

Yesterday, we received a light dusting of snow.  Now the temperatures have turned cold, so I guess our dusting of snow will stay with us.  Not the white Christmas, of which we dream unless another storm hits before the 24th.

Last night, my friends and I attended a fundraiser and Christmas concert. Kurt Bestor, his friends, band and orchestra put on a lovely performance.

Winds speeds bring destruction

Wow, what a day!  The high wind speed took down trees, took out power lines, and left Ogden in a mess.  In the canyon, we were with out electricity for around 8 hours.  Looking toward morning to see how the clean up has started.
