Good Evening

There was a wondeful sunrise this morning. At last something worth seeing so early. Otherwise the day was again dull, no sun and it is already heading for night. I am only quickly here this evening. My filet of beef is nicely thawed out for the evening Christmas food and I will be cooking Vichy carrots and brussel sprounts with it, together with French fries. No. 1 son does not eat sprouts but is happy with the carrots. For dessert there will be ice cream. There will not be a cooking battle taking place in the kitchen, those were the days gone by when the complete family was assembled. I spoke to Mr. Swiss on the phone. He said he had a good dinner in the clinic where he is.

My robin arrived again in the garden for the Christmas food

as well as the blackbird.

All that is left for me to say is to wish everyone a very happy Christmas.
