Belated Christmas Gifts
Parker showed a couple of days ago with my Christmas gifts from him and his kids. We were not together for Christmas.While I spend Christmas and New Year's in Mississauga, Parker and his kids went snowboarding at Collingwood's Blue Mountains. Afterwords, he and his wife Sandra went to Las Vegas, which they enjoy. . . . I just do not understand the fascination for that place. I have places I would like to go that hold no interest for anyone else! Everyone to his own.
Well here are my gifts. I now have a pair of lovely leather "go to town" gloves. I also got a tin of chocolates and a tin of Belgium cookies, many with chocolate icing. I quickly eat them all.
The tin of coffee is the wonderful brand served at Tim Horton's, our national institution of a coffee donut shop (it also sells some sandwiches and soup now). It's reason for being is the coffee. It is the Canadian equivalent of Dunkin Donuts, but much better (a Canadian opinion).
I also got two more books to read. I just love books of how to do homesteading kinds of things which is what the "Country Wisdom Almanac" book is all about. The other book, "Inside of a Dog: What dogs See, Smell and Know" is a examination and an appreciation of the mind of dogs by a scholar on the subject, Alexandra Horowitz. I have so wanted to read this book. I purchased it last summer to give to Jenny my dog sitter as a gift for taking care of Heidi. I read part of it before I gave it to her and asked her to loan it to me when she finished it so I could finish it. Now I have my own copy. Yippee! I thought the hound dog on the front look like Heidi, my Great Dane.
Well I can now put Christmas behind me for another year.
