Last night they were forecasting high winds starting in the early hours of the morning and ending around noon – well they were right, I woke up this morning thinking that somehow over night we had been transported to the RGV in Texas – LOL! The winds lasted until late this afternoon – a little longer than forecast but it was a bright, sunny day so other than not being too pleasant for sitting outside it was a nice day.

With the Star Choice set up we are again able to enjoy Canada AM, this morning Jeff & Bev had us in stitches watching them try Seamus’s pomegrante seeds marinated in Goldschlager.

We did some Christmas cards then headed out this afternoon to get them in the mail, the first stop was at Wal Mart where John wanted to get a couple of prints made to enclose in one of the cards, then a stop at Cracker Barrel to buy a quilt for our bed (our Christmas present to each other) then Hallmark to mail the cards, Fry’s for some groceries then another Wal Mart to pick up a couple of last minute items. While I was waiting for John at the last Wal Mart I was standing beside the cooked chicken stand, couldn’t resist as I figured Pico de Gallo chicken sounded a lot better for dinner than left over sausage!

Dinner is now over, the dishes are done and a little bit of TV or reading is in order before heading for bed. Sure can’t figure out where the days go, they but they do seem to fly by.

And so ends another great gift of a day and we look forward to tomorrow, we are looking forward to Jim & Sonia’s visit but will first have to get the place cleaned up before they arrive.
