Merry Christmas to All.

We are off for a lovely breakfast with friends and will be put the kiddies presents from the Gparents under the tree tonight. Christmas day plans include a Dawn Mountain ski, wilst stuffing our guts full of turkey in the late afternoon at Glenn and Katherines.

Merry Christmas All.

A holiday bike brought to you by Gucci. Like ayone in their right mind wouldn't want that under a tree.

Back in the saddle

Oh glory days. With the minus 30 weather behind us I feel like getting on my bike again. Just doing errands tonight brought a huge smile back to my face. I wasn't that intersted in participating in two wheeled transportation efforts over the last week but it is feeling great to back in the saddle again.

Plus...I laid down the biggest skid of my life on Annabelle tonight on our ice covered streets.

I'll try and take a photo in the next bit.

Phew........I really missed X-Files

Oh, X-Files was a weekly ritual for my friends here in Golden ten years ago. I absolutely was obsessed and I must say the last movie was right on point with classic X. I forgot how down right sexy Scully is. They played their parts perfectly. Great story, just enough blood and mystery. The token creepy sections with startling discoveries. 5 for 5. Go see it. If you are a fan of the original series. If not, it likely won't have the same shelf appeal.

Ah winters here.

Well for the Hudsons and our 114 year old house we are having a frosty Cjhristmas so far with -33 wind chill outside providing us with some frozen bathroom pipes, a 4 degee inside temp and a mild concern of our house going up in flames as we have every heater in the house on 24 hour duty. I see a woodstove oin our near future.

Yes, woodstoves are almostv outlawed in Golden due to the many inefficient stoves causing major air pollution issues, especially during these cold snap inversions. But....I have to think about it in teh context of; my family needs to be warm!

Yes there are a billion renos to do on our place but there of course is only so much time and money. Right now, a wood stove is hgh on the priority list.

Our upstairs is actually balmy with the electric baseboards.

Oh well. We live in a cold climate. We should know better.
