Just waiting for my grandson to come so he can spend Christmas Eve with us for supper and the gift opening and then he has to go home to spend the rest of the night and Christmas day with his mother.

Sitting, still trying to get my first cup of coffee down. Just now remembered to pull the Salmon from the freezer.

Just talked to SO in Baltimore (@BWI). She's awaiting a plane change to Tampa. Her family is really excited she's coming and have a lot planned for her brief visit.

I closed at noon, Roadfix. I shouldn't have even been open today...

I just got back from the hardware store, where I picked up a bunch of stuff for a room I am turning into my man cave. First thing on order is putting up the three floodlight fixture. Let there be light. I picked up some stuff I can give my recently acquired rifles a good bath in, too. The Russians packed these things away in cosmoline and it all needs thoroughly removed. Especially a couple of them. First I am going to sit here and relax for a few minutes, go shoot a little out back, then I will get to work.

I have chocolate tempered and ready to make DH some new peanut clusters (special, read expensive, organic dark chocolate with none of the bad stuff) to make up for the fact I accidentally gave his to the staff at the Vet's office instead of the regular chocolate/butterscotch variety.

I am also trying to get up the nerve to venture into the rain with all our recycling. There is a pickup today at noon and then not another one until Wednesday - with all the Christmas wrap, boxes and food containers it is over flowing by the 26th!

Sitting here in a cold house. Just arrived at the house a while ago and am running the heaters. It was 6.5 celcius, (in the mid 40's) inside when I arrived this morning. Of course we had to have one of the coldest nights of the year so far. -24c (-10F) last night. There is a wall furnace in the old part that is keeping it fine in there, but the new addition is the part which is heated by the kaput furnace, so things are a bit chilly. I have a great infared heater that does a good job. Ran the water, shut the pump and opened all faucets, now I am hanging out waiting for it to heat up a bit more and I can get going. You know it is cold inside when your Malamute wants to go sit outside

Maidrite, you could never drive me nuts (I bought a one way ticket years ago ), it is just good to see you here.

Right now I am procrastinating on going to the kitchen to get on with all the prep.

I hope that's not code-speak for killing a kangaroo.
