Well, Christmas has come and gone. It was a mostly relaxing affair here. I had a friend stay over for a few days, good food were had and some catching up as well. The dogs seemed to have a good time. They got some very cute little stuffed woodland creatures for Christmas. The packing claimed they were “durable”, yeah, sure they were.
Pretty quickly, the skunk was killed. Face and part of the head were ripped off and presumably eaten. The body and tail were de-stuffed. The rabbit was deaf in one ear (well, he was missing one ear) and the raccoon had both ears and all 4 limbs removed. Apparently, Blondie and Twix are vicious, violent dogs. I will note though, that Hera did not contribute to any of the murderings of the stuffed toys. But, all in all, the dogs looked like they had fun.
I made a turkey breast, purchased at Costco, it was huge, about 4.5 lbs in total, I can only imagine the size of the turkey it came from. The food was delicious and there was lots of it. Leftovers should be cleared up today.
Yesterday, I took another friend to Edmonton and back to pick up his daughter so he could spend time with her over the New Year. We ate lunch at a great Indian place in Edmonton, fantastic food. I will go again, that’s for sure.
Back to work today after 3 mostly relaxing days off. Nothing planned for New Year’s Eve, I am sure I will watch Team Canada play the Russians, best of luck. Team Canada is currently 2-0, they are off today after back-to-back games. I am heading to Calgary on New Year’s Day, hitting up the Calgary Hitmen hockey game with a buddy, should be a good time.
Hope you had a good Christmas.
