Hi from my parent’s place in Victoria.  Dennis, Neva and I caught the ferry this afternoon, crossed the strait and have made it home safe, sound and ready for Santa.  Here is a quick day’s rundown.

STILL in “use up” mode today, so breakfast was two slices of Little Big Bread, light butter and a slice of “lacy” cheese from Trader Joe’s.

I had a few errands to run this morning, so needed the car.  I drove Dennis to the train so he could go to work, and lets just say it was a really good thing I wasn’t in an accident, because I was driving in my pajamas when I dropped him off.  REALLY loud, stripey pajamas under my jacket.  Yup…I am a true fashion plate.  NOT!!!  :)

I had a Christmas cookie later in the morning.

And lunch on the run was a tuna melt from a coffee shop.

Here are a few photos taken on the way, or on the ferry itself.  It was really cold, so outside shots were taken quickly and I retreated back inside asap.

We arrived safe and sound.  My Mom made us a yummy Christmas Eve dinner, pasta with chicken and veg in a light alfredo sauce, salad and a glass of wine.

Here is a closeup of my Mom’s gorgeous tree.  More photos of the tree will undoubtedly follow.

Neva’s stocking has been hung by the chimney with care.  Ha!
