The run up to Christmas is always so busy, and this year was no different. I am always so grateful when we get to Christmas Day when all that steam finally gets let out of the kettle, and then life slows down again.
This Christmas we ate at a local Chinese restaurant, just like we do every year. The food was great, and it was a relaxing time with The Flirt and what few family members I have left in the area.
Afterward the Flirt and I went for a drive around Lake Audubon, just to check out the ice and see if anyone is catching anything.
The drive down was lovely because fog had left hoar frost on everything, and of course I couldn’t help but take pictures.
I complain a lot about winter, but I can’t imagine not having a beautiful winter landscape this time of year. Christmas without snow would be too strange. This is the right amount of winter. Any more than what you see here is just overkill.
Speaking of ice fishing, the Flirt packed up the truck with all of the gear and went to scout out a local lake this morning. He tried to get me to go along, but as much as I like to ice fishing I just needed to sit in the quiet with a nice cup of tea for awhile. I wanted to read some blogs, and write as well. And, there’s always that pesky housework that needs doing. We will see how much housework gets done, but I definitely had to make time to blog. 😊
Anyway, I’m the way out the door, he was ticking off the few things he needed to pick up on the way to the lake. And he forgot something he definitely would need. When I said, “what’s the one thing you need to take with you?”, I was thinking to remind him to pick up bait but he said, “My girlfriend”. Best. Answer. Ever. ❤️
Well, as much as I loved that he wanted me to go along, I still needed some time alone. New Years Day is a definite yes for fishing.
Here’s wishing you all a very happy holiday season. Blessings all!
