Life is not about waiting for the storms to pass- it is about learning to dance in the rain.

Photos from the Friday after Thanksgiving

Having dinner at a wonderful gourmet cafe in Elgin.I put on my warmest boots and coat -- it wasn't THAT cold, but I felt cold
And went to Al's Creamery
Where the Christmas decorations had just been put up
We were warmly greeted by the proprietor
Welcomed into a warm ambience
Served scrumptious food (that's Spaetzle Mit Lox made as only Tony can!)
We ate until sated (I look like I've been over eating!!!) I had a migraine a day later -- that's the pre-migraine swollen look!
We admired the beautiful decorations
And headed home.
(More on our decorations later)

Al's is a wonderful place to dine...if you want dinner, come at 5 p.m. or later. Daytime the menu is gourmet sandwiches, soups and salads. Delicious. But the evening meals are to die for! (So to speak!). It is my favorite place to eat, Elgin's finest little spots to dine.

Dios mio!! I misspelled "gourmet" first time around. Correction made!!

And yes, my blog pictures are of Ireland. My husband and I were married there and spent 2 weeks honeymooning there. The pictures are ones from my husband.

Someday I want to go to Ireland. Everytime I see pictures, it reminds me. (I have Irish and Scottish roots -- long, long ago in the ancestral line)

That looks like a great spot -- lots of atmosphere. And I'll bet the food is good too.
