It’s Friday the 13th but I’m feeling lucky. Superstition aside, today was a great day. The sun came out after an incredible full moon the night before and it was 4C. A whole lot better than the -9C from a few days ago. Funny how weather is a hot topic this time of year. Windchill. Streamers. Flurries. Squalls. All spell yuck.
But today was almost spring-like. It’s a bonus to get a great day this time of year.
Today was great in other ways too. It’s a result of just hanging out. Nothing to do. Nowhere to go. No one to see. Just hanging. Leisurely walk followed by a leisurely breakfast (except for the Nespresso machine; that thing hates me!) followed by a few errands. Including getting a new insurance company for our house and saving a bundle (thank you for dropping the ball Intact). Followed by a steak dinner/late lunch barbecued to perfection by the grill master Rudy. Followed by another beautiful walk in the sunshine.
And then Christmas movies complemented with rum and eggnog. A festive end to a lovely day. Including my daily call to the folks. All’s well on the parental front. Sigh of contentment.
We casually review our schedule for the next few days. There’s a lot of potential activity in the hopper. All of it requires a hefty commute. Not sure if that’s going to happen. Perhaps Lady Luck will intervene and a blast of seasonal weather will preclude any travel plans. Either way, today was a perfect day … in the lucky one.
