Here we are in sunny Arizona. This is even further removed from the traditional view of Christmas than our usual damp haunts in western Washington. Yesterday afternoon I played golf in sunshine and 70 degrees! It seems strange to see holiday decorations on cacti in front yards. Stocking caps would be way too warm.
We are enjoying spending time with Pat. This evening we are going to some friends of hers for a Christmas Eve barbecue. Tomorrow the three of us are making dinner and pigging out.
We do miss being with our many friends and extended family. It will be strange not to celebrate Christmas Eve with the Auld/Etue family waiting for Kringovac to come. (Someone please tell Kringovac I’ve been good.) And we will not be there tomorrow for our extended family’s Christmas dinner.
We hope you all have a wonderful Christmas and may we all have a happy and peaceful new year.
