It's been a busy weekend around here!


First, Left Brain is officially now DETECTIVE Left Brain!!
The promotion was a bit of a surprise; we thought he was likely to be promoted, but not before the new year.    So it's a good thing for sure!   However, it also meant that he had to leave for 2 weeks of training.


He also doesn't have the Christmas holidays off anymore.
Because of course:   we are hosting the family at our house. 

So All Thing Christmas?
Basically - Me.

However, at least we did get to have our town's annual Santa Clause parade this weekend to attend as a family.    Also, extra special because my sister and her 6 year old daughter and one big bottle of very good Shiraz joined us too!

Aside from all the laundry, ironing and packing he had to do; Left Brain was able to put up our Christmas lights before he left.

So, let's sum up.
Good News, Family, Parades and Lights all over the neighbourhood:    It IS beginning to look a lot like Christmas.

A little bit of the the Celtic roots to kick it off.

And of course we started the season off with a holiday favourite movie!

Our forecast this week is quite mild for this time of year.
Come on by next Monday and see if my next selections are Let It Snow, and I'm Dreaming of a White Christmas.

That's how you will know if I need more wine.
