Preparing for the cold season, and for the holidays   

Good afternoon to all of you English speakers.

It has been a busy season for me, and likely for all of you as well. As some of you may of heard I tend to do a lot of walking. In summer that is something that I do everyday as a general rule. During this season however the weather has been a bit too unstable to consistently spend time outside. Fortunately there has been some days with nice enough weather to go outside and get some fresh air. On those bad weather days I have been spending time indoors and doing some final preparations before winter finally really sets in. I cannot remember how many times I have been to the hardware store recently. If I go a few more times perhaps the staff will start calling me by name, and I can start to think of the shop as my second home.

Starting from this week I will be preparing for my Thanksgiving dinner. This year I plan to make pumpkin pie, candied yams, and oven-baked whole chickens. Thanksgiving is not a holiday which I put much thought into though, actually it is really Christmas which I am looking forward to. Even this morning I was considering where in the house to put up the Christmas tree. It is a fairly decent size tree, and I am having a hard time making a decision as to where it could be placed that will not be in the way.

See you all next time!
