On Hogswatch night, children waiting for the Hogfather to bring presents will leave him a meat pie and glass of sherry, as well as turnips for his pigs. So meat pies and sherry seem an appropriate supper when watching the movie (I didn't have any turnips so the pigs get carrots.)
We had a lovely Christmas morning going to visit my parents, where I showed that I can cook brunch for four people in a rather small microwave oven. Over mimosas and sweet bread (and later shrimp and grits) we enjoyed memories of Christmas past.
I've enjoyed a new way of multitasking. I enjoy spinning--it's calming and soothing, but honesty makes me admit that it could possible be . . . boring. It involves the hands and the feet but not the mind. I also enjoy reading--which involves the eyes and the brain. So . . . . book on a stand, wheel at the chair, fire in the fireplace--what more could one want? A book later I had enough alpaca to get a scarf on the loom.
So enjoying the Christmas break--is this what retirement is like?
