Aught Six

It’s time to get back to routine. The break has been nice, but I’m looking forward to the regular schedule. It has been really hard to blog lately. I haven’t done as much reading as I had anticipated either. Same with the gym – I haven’t been there for a while either. Oh well, that’s the holidays. There’s always something to do – even if that something is loafing around. We’ve done a lot of family activities, and that’s worthwhile.

Sunday night we went out to spend the afternoon and evening with some friends at their home in the country. They have a lovely winter wonderland setup on a pond – rink, skating loop, fire pit, picnic bench, lights, etc. On seeing this setup, a friend of these friends remarked, “It’s better than a beer commercial.” We played some hockey, I did a wild, legs out flop on my back and slightly winded myself, then we went inside and ate again – what fun! It’s been years since I’ve played any hockey (and my legs are sore), but it was grand.

I’m going to post on more serious subjects tomorrow (a link-fest, methinks, as I have lots to report), but my kids have been bugging me to post something. There it is.
