What could be better than gathering around a festive table with loved ones to enjoy a feast? We had a wonderfully fun time celebrating. The only drawback was that my sister Jan wasn't feeling well enough to come. Maybe next year.
Our Christmas season ended that night though. On the 26th we took our tree down and chopped it up and put all the decorations away. We are now in serious departure mode for our two month get-away to Mexico. We will be leaving on New Years Day and will spend two months in the balmy warmth of Mazatlan. Today we're getting travel insurance, cleaning the oven, beginning to pack and sorting out all the details involved with being away for 8 weeks.
Now I'm beginning to get excited. It started when I pulled out the summer clothes and realized that it will be 80 degrees instead of 34. We are leaving Geordie the dog at home with Carol, a friend from Massechusets, who is coming to enjoy our balmy weather. It's all relative!
I'm thinking that I'll be inspired to do a bit more blogging in the new year with the tropical experience. So keep in touch.
