Happy New Year

We had a wonderful Christmas, thank you for asking.  A house full of laughter and children and food and fun and love. Skating on an outdoor rink. Flying kites in a brisk winter wind. And, yes, I'll have a second helping of turkey and gravy. What else could we ask for?

The Boxing Day jigsaw puzzle is a bit more challenging this year; however, great progress was made last night and hope springs eternal.

Tonight is the annual Appies Party at the local pub. Bring a plate or two of your favourite snackies, accept a pool or Wii challenge, belt out an oldie at the Karaoke machine after you're well lubricated. All in all, a neighbourhood get-together of the best kind. Hopefully we can move into the new year healthier than we (and by "we," I mean "him") did last year.

So much to be thankful for. So much to look forward to. Life is a rich banquet and we are feeling very blessed.


  1. What does 'Appies' mean?

    It's now the new year; so go on, take yourself a third helping of Turkey. Very best wishes, Cro x

    1. Appies are appetizers aka hors d'oeuvres. Bryan made up a dish of pot stickers (Chinese dumplings) and another of Winkler Farmer Sausage.

      I played Wii bowling and suck at it as badly as I do real bowling.
