I've just enough energy to say I'm too tired to write anything of substance. I've rarely been as tired as I am right now, which is why I wanted to record it.

Our Eli

Our newest grandson Eli, at his first family gathering at the weekend...with grandma Bev.

I was told today to eat better and exercise more if I want my Cholesterol level... which is just a teeny-weeny bit high, to shrink.

"I can give you pills", she said.

Mmmm... tough call. Perish the thought.

Had salmon topped with lemon, a tiny dollop of philadelphia sprinkled with parsley.  A jacket and broccoli were their plate mates. Had a brisk walk.

This is war...after I finish that picnic chocolate bar. Hey, this is about my general diet, not my rare treats :)

Getting into the mood

A most unlikely venue for a Christmas lunch for 80+ temple workers, but it was a brilliant meal.

Waiting for the food to arrive and having a good chat.

Entertainment later at the Murray's home. I can't believe we all fitted into the living room. David did really well playing the accordion...he hates playing in public. There's Eileen handing out the words as David gets ready.  He's been dreading it for weeks...perhaps even months.

Auld Lang Syne really rocked the place. Everybody loved it.

President Murray keeps her in the closet...such a funny song.

I think they were applauding me. I sang two songs.

Irish humour really appeals to me.

Some of the lights around the nativity. I took the photo this evening, but couldn't upload it until now.  Internet isn't the best around here.

You can't hear it, but the music is really setting the scene.

Not long now! It's freezing! Perhaps we'll have snow? REALLY looking forward to Christmas now.
