Slow Lane

Well, the last few days have been pretty uneventful, but not in a bad way!  I've been mostly just hanging out with my mum and grandparents, and drinking more tea than I have in months ;-)  

Last night Mum and I joined one of her best friends and the friend's daughter and mum (my "Grandma Lynn") for a multi-generational exploration of the Butchart Gardens Christmas Show. It was lovely, and nice and warm, too!  I'm having a bit of a time adjusting to above-zero weather after the first month of winter at home, but I'm sure not complaining!  I tried to get a few pictures, but since it was dark, they obviously didn't turn out too well.  My camera's not fancy enough nor are my hands steady enough to handle that sort of thing!
After the light show, we went over to "Auntie" Wendy's (Mum's friend) for some delicious pizza and chat, and I shanghaied their piano for a little while to play for the first time in months.  I was forced to acknowledge that I only really know two Christmas songs off by heart.  Since they're my favourites (What Child is This and O Come Emmanuel) I guess that's not so bad!
I'm heading over to the Gs' with Mum again in a little bit and we'll have dinner and watch the hockey game there, then I'll stay the night and head to church with Granny in the morning, then the rest of the day is reserved for working on a long-procrastinated essay.  I'd better take it easy, ya'll, this life is about more than I can handle.
