Thursday December 17, 2009-Merry Chirstmas to All!

Since Christmas is upon us and I wasn't in the mood to send Christmas cards this year, I want to wish everyone a Merry Christmas and Happy New Year! I don't think we're going to take our regular Christmas photo this year either. Our Santa hats are packed away in the RV and it's way too cold to go outside in shorts & t-shirts for a photo. Today is -20C (-4F)with a windchill of -30C (-22F) but it's bright and sunny! I wasn't even going to think about going for a walk this morning!

So my activities today consisted of reading and napping.

Gordon did go out for a drive and to take some photos but I slept through his leaving.

Today's photo is one Gordon took of the Watson's Mill in Manotick, Ontario when he was out for his afternoon drive.


  1. That picture is as good as any purchased Christmas card! Sorry it's so darned cold up there. Perhaps it will break sometime in the near future!

  2. BRRRR!!! Not much longer, Sandra.
    Things could be worse. At least the sun is shining, that always helps.
    Our Post Offices will have to miss the contributions, as I am not sending any cards, either!
    Safe and Happy Holidays to you, too. Penny, TX

  3. Sandra, I want to wish you a very Merry Christmas also, and a good year ahead.

  4. Merry Christmas, Sandra!

  5. Sandra and Gordon,
    All the best during the Christmas season and in the year to come. With the refusal to let you cross the border you are living through one of fears. It seems very unfair that a customs officer has the power to refuse entry without some offsetting avenue of appeal. However, you and Gordon appear to be coping pretty well and the pictures are excellent.

    I grew up near the (then) village of Manotick, in fact attended the public school on Long Island for a semester. Watson's mill is quite familiar...a beatiful picture of it.
    We are spending the winter in the RGV at Mercedes. While the weather doesn't compare to Canada's it is unusually cool and wet...everyone wondering when it will normalise.
    Gordon's and your pictures are something I look forward to...a connection with my youth!
    Best wishes,
