Sipping Cocoa and Stories: A Gentle Christmas with an Old Feller on Dec. 23/2023″

Good Morning! The country air carries the scent of evergreens and the promise of Christmas, which isn’t that far off.”

It’s a cloudy morning here waking up in cottage country, but the good news is it isn’t as cold as it has been with the temperature sitting at -1.8 C | 28.76 F. And the temperature is going to rise well above the freezing mark for the next few days. Which will get rid of any snow we have/had.

For my wife and I snow is nice, but not so much as we have to move it.

Highway 522 is bare and quiet these days. Our road is so tranquil that the speed limit signs are more like friendly suggestions.

On another note, Christmas is getting closer every day. Our son was going to drop by for Christmas, but at the moment he came down with a bug that put him in bed. So we will have to see how that pans out. But it is that time of year, it’s a breeding ground for all sorts of bugs with folks in large groups getting together, along with all the shopping in malls and things. You know how it is – ’tis the season for both joy and a bit of caution, especially with these darn bugs floatin’ around.

Moving along, yesterday was a good day in the old woodworking den. Spent most of it wrestling with machines – straightening them out and giving them a good talking to. You know, they can be a bit unruly sometimes. I also did some cleaning too; sawdust doesn’t clean itself, unfortunately. I also managed to do some editing on a video I made a few days ago, so it will be ready soon to put on my YouTube channel.

With that I am off for a bowl of porridge that my Lovely Wife is preparing, and will then see what the day has in store, other than what I have planned. You never know.

Closing this mornin’ with a nugget of country wisdom: “Life’s like a good huntin’ dog, loyal and full of surprises. Sip your hot chocolate, stay warm, and let the day fetch you some good moments.” GW
