    Default Merry Christmas

    All the best wished to all.

    I am all set. I was a little worried yesterday when my son called from
    Montreal an hour after his train was supposed to have left and he didn't
    know if he was going to make his connection in Toronto. It might have
    been hard to get up to the bus station and catch a bus at the last
    minute but he said he would call from there to let me know whet was
    going on. He finally called after 6 to say they had held the train but
    it would be about an hour late. Meanwhile, it was snowing and the roads
    were getting bad. I had supper ready to go into the oven and headed off
    to pick him up. The train finally arrived and we made it home just in
    time to eat.

    So it is good to have the kid home for a few days. I had to run out and
    pick up some ground pork for tonight's tortiere and I dropped him off at
    his friend's house so he can visit before we go to my brother's party
    tonight. Meanwhile, my wife went out to pick up the fresh turkey.

    It has warmed up here. The snow is melting fast but there is enough to
    ensure it will still be white tomorrow.

    We are good to go.

    It's up to 5F here. A definite relief after the past few days. We're
    in no danger of losing our snow cover any time soon, but there's a
    very light dusting of snow coming down now. Just enough to freshen
    things up a bit and add a little sparkle to the landscape.

    We're taking it easy today and tomorrow. A nap, some gift wrapping,
    and leftover sloppy joes from Monday.

    Merry Christmas!
