Heading Out

Seeking the winds that help to sail on Shakespeare's tide.

A Very Merry Christmas was had by all.

Staying at a hotel at Christmas has benefits and disadvantages, especially when staying near one's child, but for a variety of reasons we do. This morning a slight contratemps since we had put a do-not-disturb sign outside the door, after getting in a little late. So at 8:30 am we get a note under the door saying that they would not clean the room, since they could not get in. It seemed to foredain a less than good day. But after we arose and got ready, the maid was still working the hall (an hour later) and so we did have our room cleaned after all.

The day was spent, after church, in typical familial manner, though we brought the UK Christmas pud from a local store. Had Cornish Game Hen and everything worked out well, with the only problem being how to get a new CD cabinet back home. I was mildly amused by the fact that last year we were at St John the Divine in New York, in a packed assembly while this year, we were in a very much smaller and less well attended church, and yet both worked very well, and were enjoyable in their own ways. There is much to be said for a more rural existance.

Well I hope you all had as good a Christmas as we did, and may your New Year be Prosperous and Happy.
