'Twas The Day Before Christmas
The last couple of days have been non-stop action. My oldest daughter, CaJenn, flew in on Saturday afternoon from the left coast. She flew Frontier and actually arrived 15 minutes ahead of schedule! Strange as it may seem she said the San Francisco airport was not crowded at all, at the Frontier terminal. She arrived the prescriptive 90 minutes in advance and made it through security in about 10 minutes....Let's hope her luck continues on the return trip.
The good news is that the his-self family is now complete for the holidays. The bad news is that The Emmer has come down with a nasty cold and is not at all in the holiday spirit. We're hoping she can shake it pretty soon with a combination of medication and rest.
The weather has been hit or miss the last few days with a light snowy day coming every three or four days. The forecast is for a few snow showers on Christmas morning and then clearing. Sunday morning the sky was just magnificent. I woke up at about 7am looked out the window and then hustled for my camera. CaJenn leaves to return for the left coast on Thursday and right now it looks like we will get a couple of inches of new snow during that day!
Since The Emmer is under the weather I have taken up the slack as principle Molly Dog walker. Molly Dog is a "mostly" Australian Cattle Dog and walks with a vengeance. It's more like she is taking me for a walk than the other way around. Oh well, this will be good exercise for the newly retired guy!
Last night we went out to dinner at a very nice restaurant in the small town of Sedalia, CO. Gabriel's is located in an old 1889 mansion that was originally built for one of the founding fathers of this little town.
For a small town, Sedalia has got it all. Not only is Gabriel's a fantastic restaurant but it sits right across the street from the famous Bud's Bar. We even considered playing a joke on CaJenn and going into Bud's like that was where we were going to eat dinner before we took her across the street. Unfortunately, Bud's is closed all this week so that ruined that idea. Our dinner party only consisted of The Bride, CaJenn and myself. The Emmer just didn't feel up to eating out. You know The Emmer is not feeling well when she turns down an opportunity to dine out. Dining out is one of her biggest pleasures.
I guess today is the lull before the storm. The Bride has to work today and I'm doing last minute chores to get ready for tomorrows festivities.
I want to wish all of my readers a Merry Christmas! May your every wish come true during this season.
Thanks for visiting.
