Merry Christmas

Posted in Stuff with tags , , , on December 24, 2010 by brianestover

While much of the world is a sleep eagerly awaiting Christmas morning, or sitting down to Christmas Eve dinner, we have already started Christmas Day celebrations. Merry Christmas everyone.

While most of the house was asleep, I snuck out and took a walk down to the beach. Below are some photos from the beach.

Then it was time to open gifts under the bookcase. Hey what can you do when you’re house sitting and there is no tree? But the kids still had a blast.

Presents under the Bookcase?

Then it was time to eat breakfast and walk the dog. I’ve really enjoyed walking the dog, even though he isn’t the best behaved dog I’ve ever walked. It’s been a long time since I’ve dog walked on a daily basis.

Merry Christmas all.

The Big Spider Stroll

So quiet it was this morning when I awoke. No one else was up. It was early, the morning was cool. I decided to take a walk, explore the hood, get a lay of the land, see my surroundings. While I was scanning the headlines, drinking my tea and getting ready to go on a walk, I spied my niece tiptoeing into the room where I’m sleeping. She was creeping ever so quietly then suddenly, she stopped. She realized I wasn’t there. You could see the gears spinning in her head. Where is he? She was scanning the room, head swiveling right then left then right, looking rather confused. So I whispered to her, and watched her break into a huge smile as she came running over. Not quietly either. Since every one else was asleep I suggested we go for a walk.

Off we strolled to the park. She was very concerned that I wasn’t wearing shoes and insisted we turn back…..at the end of the driveway. Over her protests, I convinced her that my feet are fine to walk down a few houses without shoes. On the long journey back I spied a spider. Other then the tarantula spiders I see in Tucson, this is one of the biggest I’ve seen.

Of course we, um I mean I, had to take a picture of it. So here is today’s clue for the fabulous prize I have for some lucky winners.

Since my niece obviously inherited my good looks here we are at 6am on our long walk.
