Boxing Day Mountain Style

Merry Christmas everyone! Hope it was a good one. Ours was great fun, Tony and I and all the "kids". Lots of food, wine and laughter. We ended up with just 7 of us, and had an excellent dinner and great family time. This morning I did the turkey broth and stripped the meat, and turkey soup is now frozen for quick dinners.

Today was very mild here, a bit overcast, about 6 degrees C or over 40 degrees F. We headed out to the mountains but because it was so overcast the clouds covered most of the mountains. We had a great hike but were overdressed and I ended up carrying my mitts and scarf, and opening the zip on my coat.

Not much snow out here- we have more in town.

We have a very social week coming up and I will not have any sewing time until next weekend...Tony gave me a quilting magazine in my stocking though, and I did find a pattern that I have to make in 2011.

For those of you who entered to win the fabric prize for my 150th post, I will make the draw on Wednesday. Thanks to all who entered, and good luck!
