We planned to spend Christmas at home with the pets this year and it has turned out to be nice and relaxing. Louise and I slept in a little bit while Holly was up early to prepare for the holiday feast. As I write this, the turkey is just finishing up. This is how Louise and I are distracting ourselves while we wait to eat - the whole house smells like delicious turkey!
We opened our gifts earlier today - a new tradition was born: gift opening in bed! Louise got all sorts of edible treats and had to give them all a good sniff. There was one stuffed hoof that she was quite fond of, but it seems to have been a bit much for her today. Somehow I think it is because she keeps smelling a 'better offer' and won't commit to the hard work of chewing up a bone no matter how tasty!
After the gift unwrapping it was time to take a mid-day walk. It was sunny and while not warm, still at least 'comfortably cool', which is to say that we had a nice stroll along the Coal Harbour seawall.
Wow, the smell of turkey is a powerful distraction for both Louis and me. She is over by me (as to not be a nuisance in the kitchen) but she's clearly sitting at attention, pointed toward the oven. She's not going to miss anything. Me neither, as I'm signing out here. Time to eat!
