New Year's dinner.
The new years always start out with a big BANG for us in more ways than one. Garrison David, our grandson, was born January the first, now nineteen years ago. We had a nice conversation on the phone yesterday as he is at home for Christmas vacation, he filled us in about schoolwork and such, and yes, Gary was happy to be home for the holiday and was planning to see Sherlock Holmes with his family. Recommended we do the same. It is odd, we have not gone to the movies once, since we got here! Last year we were ALL together for Gary's big birthday, a party had been planned since he was born! The day we opened his "time capsule", that sure was fun!
Is it cold, you ask? Yep, it is! At the moment 17 degrees F. There actually is something oddly exhilirating about it. These severe differences are great, as you really appreciate coming indoors after a brisk walk with Ralle for example. Dressed right, it's really nice actually, as it makes your senses come alive, truly! What I find more annoying is the getting dressed and undressed part. It seems like it takes so looooooooong, putting on the sweater, buttoning the sweater, wrapping up in the scarf, putting on the hat, then there is the zipper challenge!!! And God knows, that zipper has a life and a will of it's own! Sometimes it works exactly as intended! ZIP!!! Other times..........oh, let's not talk about it!!
Dinner? Roast halibut, asparagus, red potato and leek ribbons. Mixed green salad with raspberry vinegar dressing a glass of white wine. Dessert? Popcorn and TV. Stjarnorna pa slottet AKA Stars in the castle, it should be entertaining! David can practice listening to ONLY swedish!
This mornings walk yielded us a field full of Canada Geese. Fabulous!
Some church pictures today.
Have a great New Year
