Forgot Christmas already…

Filed under: Canada, Home, Hummer — K2 in Canada @ 8:10 PM

Oops, I guess I forgot about the Christmas blog already. Wasn’t really that dramatic this year. Yes, we did get a little live tree again and I managed to place 4 candles on it. It was a beautiful sunny and cold day. Watched Chatter and the little female hummer for a while in the morning. We should have gone for a paddle and I was humming and hawing for some time but eventually Jeff convinced me that 3C would be too cold. Instead, we at least got a couple hours walking in along the Fraser River.

We expected Jeff’s parents over for Raclette on Christmas Eve but they had to cancel because of being down with a bad cold. So Jeff and I ate almost all of it by ourselves…pigs! But hey, that was in preparation for the 8-day-in-a-row ski trip. Not sure why drinking all the booze felt like good prep too :-).

On Christmas Day, we went for a ski at Cypress in the sunshine in the AM (that’s part of the trip report to follow) and headed over to Jeff’s parents for the afternoon. Jeff’s dad was better but his mom just started the cold and had no appetite. Too bad since her turkey and all the sides (Brussels sprouts, mashed potatoes, sweet yams and beans) were excellent as always. More prep for the ski-every-day trip. We stayed longer than I expected – not having packed yet for the trip. Other than the box of homemade goodies Maynetta had prepared for us to take with us. Great idea. And that’s a wrap for Christmas 🙂
