Well, another yuletide has come and gone... and once again it was a wonderful time. Meghan came to Belleville with me for my grandparent's annual xmas-eve-eve fondue complete with the recently annual family produced game. This year Meghan and I came up with the game, a relatively simple affair that saw two teams compete for Snowman parts by way of answering/completing trivia questions/challenges. It was as always a lot of fun. :)
Saturday I put Meghan on the train back to Ottawa, after we completed our xmas exchange. :) Meghan got me a hammock (very cool!) for my deck and a year's subscription to the Saturday Globe & Mail! I'm so excited about spending Saturday mornings reading the paper while drinking orange juice! :D Then it was off to pick up a few things for my mom, a shortened run, and then a trip to my grandparents again for Xmas Eve dinner (the typical buffet of appetizers - coined a pick-around by yours truly way back when I was a wee gaffer).
Well, I ran today, but not as far as I was supposed to. I went out for an hour and ran 5.5 miles, instead of the 10 I was supposed to run. It was warm out, but still slushy and gross, though those shouldn't be used as excuses. I simply didn't feel like running and so feel fairly good that I did what I did. :)
... can they at least make sure to put the expiration date on the front of the card.... Just a personal preference. Article.
The run was pretty good, though I certainly didn't do as well as both Kev and Steve, the wind on the run up the river was brutal for me.
