Christmas dinner

I'm thankful to be feeling good tonight because early this morning I was cleaning snow off the satellite dishes and my ladder slipped on the ice. I bounced softly and everything is ok.

Today I only did a half hour of cardio because we had activites planned for the evening. 15 minutes on the treadmill with 3 km total and 15 minutes on the elliptical.

This evening we had our gift exchange and Christmas dinner. Dinner was a steak barbecue with potatoes and salad. Tomorrow is going to be our "Sunday" routine a day early. That means that we have free time in the morning and go to work after lunch.

We are doing Christmas activities tonight and tomorrow because the next few days will be very busy for us. Every time you see someone on TV who traveled here to wish us the best, please understand that there are a lot of people working very hard to make that TV appearance happen. My friends and I will be a small group of those many hard working people. The TV personalities will be the people giving the most of all because they are doing it out of the goodness of their hearts.

It is what it is but I'll be glad when January comes around and we can get back to our normal routine.

In case you are wondering, the gifts were handed out in round robin format with names picked out of a hat. There were many fine gifts handed out tonight but mine was the coveted moose hat. I'll wear it with pride.

I don't know if you have ever been close to a moose bellowing or calling. Maybe at Castle Mountain? I have heard them. I suggest that the person in the moose hat might bellow with the volume of a moose at each "celebrity", politician, etc that invades just as he/she is giving their sound bite. Happy Christmas anyway and try to stay off ladders! Smart moose never climb them:)
