Its been a busy few Days.
I picked up Alex at the Airport late Christmas Eve. His plane was 2 hours late!
Christmas Day was gloriously sunny!
What a glorious morning! Alex and I walked along the dyke in front of the apartments then came back and had Mimosas and Eggs Benedict.
Later we walked over to the cinema to watch Star Wars VII! Excellent movie. If you get the chance to see it in 3-D do it! Some of the scenes are breathtaking.
We relaxed, then had a great Christmas dinner
(Homemade of course) and the main course of
Peroghies, Cabbage Rolls and Keilbassa
We also had some excellent Red Beer to go with it.
Desert was later (after we were not quite so full) and we had some of the excellent Black Forest Cake my sister had served at Christmas dinner at her house last Sunday.
Our day ended with a magnificent moonrise!
Boxing Day we started once again had Mimosas, but this time with bacon and eggs.
It was a typical West Coast winter day, overcast, drizzle and with a cold bite to the wind. Today we went to see the Hateful 8 (Quentin Tarantino's new film) on 70mm film at the Park Theatre in West Vancouver. What a great old venue and 70mm really makes a difference, especially on those huge old screens. Though it was violent and bloody, it was an excellent film.
We came home and had Caesars while we waited for the Rare Roast beef to cook.
Tonight we had traditional British - rare raost beef, roast potatoes, green beans, horse radish and gravy made from the drippings, oh yes, a wonderful Cabernet/Shiraz.
Today it is raining, cold and Alex goes home, so we will have a quiet day.
Oh yes, we did a little art.
And the Photo Nellie in the champagne came from:
