A Grand Day



Last night we had our final big meal of the holiday season – a beautiful standing rib roast with Yorkshire Puddings and all the trimmings.  That meant today’s slate was free.  I could do whatever I wanted, or I could choose to do nothing at all.  The latter isn’t my style so I mixed it up a bit.

I went for a lovely run alongside the ocean, early enough that I saw only two cars.  It was just 6km and maybe cancelled out 1/2 of a Yorkshire Pudding.  I spent some time on the cryptic crossword and made good progress.

Then I hit my sewing room for an hour or two of stitching while our son hung a quilt rack on the wall.  I’m working on a Postage Stamp Quilt, made entirely of 1 inch squares.  The first 16 square inch block is now complete.  It’s a perfect project to pick up whenever I feel like sewing, but don’t want to tackle something intricate or complicated.

Now it’s getting dark and it’s time to turn on the Christmas lights for the final time this season.  Onwards to new adventures in 2016.
