December really arrived brusquely. We were in the single digits (F) all day yesterday and a big snowstorm is forecast for this evening. We better get used to it, Environment Canada has issued their winter forecast and they're calling for the coldest winter in 15 years. Yesterday, I didn't leave the house but I made a lot of progress on the Christmas cards. I hope to crank out the rest of them today. Spouse has convinced me to wait until next weekend to put up a tree (he's right, it'll get too dried out if we put it up today.)
My mom is out deep sea fishing on her annual 17 day trip to the middle of the Pacific Ocean. The boat she's on has some kind of uplink and (much like a blog) there are updates from the trip posted every day. I saw this shot of my mom posted there. This fish she caught weighs more than twice what she weighs. Pretty impressive, I'd say.
I'm not really fond of the bloodbath that is fishing, but boy do I love the smoked tuna mom makes with her catch.
