Latke Party

We've missed out on this for the past couple of years but finally were able to attend the latke party this afternoon. Great conversations and food. It's all Steve's secret recipe (he adds carrots).

Driver's license

William passed his driving exam today and is now licensed to kill, I mean drive. He's worked very hard at this and we are very proud of him. He wasn't really sure if he had passed or not. The tester was nice and calm and didn't seem to find fault with little things. I think it is a matter of confidence that William now has. It is stressful to drive with someone who is not confident. He is good out there now.

Christmas tree challenge

It was a challenge to find a tree this year. We went to four places and finally found a few (only 8 remaining when we arrived, only 4 remaining once we left with ours) trees over 6 feet tall. This is rather feeble compared to most of our previous trees. Probably won't hold even half of our lights and ornaments, but at least we got one.

Sylvia's opening and haircuts

I missed my haircut last December before the Filmpool open aperture talk and finally got around to rescheduling it. Feels good. Went to Sylvia Ziemann's opening at the AGR. Her drawings, of which we own one, look even more amazing once they are all put together in one room. Dreamy and intoxicating.

Justice League

Temperature at 7 degrees so I barbequed elk burgers, bakes some cookies, and hosted Allan for supper followed by Justice League. He showed us a prototype of his new book.

Sending out cards

We've been working on cards for a few days. I don't know how many we'll get out this year. Not as many as we did way long ago, but more than the past couple of years. Back in the 90s, Margaret and I used to do 2 or even 3 big mail outs to friends every year, usually 75-100 items. This would be Christmas cards in December but could be a post card set if we went on a trip or some other celebration card if not.

Indian grocery on south Albert St

We went for lengthy drive today, hitting a few regular spots (such as the comic store where we ran into Ron and Karen doing some x-mas shopping) and irregular places, such as the Aroma Grocery, which I'd never been to before. We picked up some frozen naan and then some warm samosa's from the counter which were really great. We ate them in the rain outside of the store.
