Hello everyone !
First, I would like to thank everyone who shared my posts on facebook and twitter, these social networks help a lot to get known, so a big thank you to all of you ! I appreciate it.
Christmas. What a wonderful time of year it is. I have always loved Christmas, not for religious reasons, I admit, but for the many little things that are part of the season’s spirit. For me, December is the only month of the year when I slow things down. I don’t train, I don’t watch saturated and trans fats, I drink wine more often, I go shopping more often, even if I don’t have anything to buy but just for the pleasure of having my scone and Van Houtte coffee (no Starbuck’s in my town 😦 ) and enjoying the ambiance. I take longer walks with Winny and I do less house cleaning. I allow myself to relax.
What I really enjoy during the holidays is watching Christmas movies on television. When I decorate the tree I put on my favorite Christmas movie “Home Alone : Lost In New-York” There are so many fun things to do during the holidays. There are Christmas concerts, the Nutcracker ballet, the Christmas parade, and when I lived near Montreal I would go window-shopping downtown to see the beautiful store displays.
Last year, on December 29, we had the most extraordinary one and a half hour sleigh ride in the fields and woods of a private land in St-Anges. What a beautiful name for a small village, St-Anges. We were pulled by two big Percherons , a Dalmatian was running with them and had great fun ! It’s a memory I will cherish forever, it was so beautiful !
(Don’t look at the village under the tree, it’s not finished ! lol)
