TUESDAY, DECEMBER 27/11

By: GRANDMANAN , 12:18 PM GMT on December 27, 2011


The waning days of 2011 suggesting the entrance to the New Year preceeded by lots of wind. One day freezing temps next day rain over the next little while. Currently an ominous red sky over Ross Island, wind picking up from south, temp -6C expected to be plus 6 and rain by tonight. Gale force southerlies till morning, then a wind change and more high winds in the forecast.

Emily away to meet Andrew to escort him here for an overnight, weather deterioating tomorrow to the degree they plan on being off here as early as possible to get back to Quispam.

Some salmon being harvested, local plant going four days this past couple of weeks to take advantage of the holiday season.

Hi, ho, Rob, family and friends.

Sounds like everyone in your neck of the woods had a fine Christmas.

Ours was quiet; just Hubby, myself, a good dinner and TV. Warm, though. I had the doors open with the screens up for a cross draft while the oven was on.

I went over to see my elderly cousin yesterday and take her our gift: an amarrylis bulb in a glass vase. She doesn't need more 'stuff' and I can plant the bulb outside for her after it's done blooming. She had spent Christmas day with her children and was happy, though a bit tired by all the hoopla of having a houseful the day before, even if she didn't do the cooking. She is 89, after all.

I'll be going up to see Dad later in January.

Temps have been up and down. I never know what to put on: long pants, long sleeved shirt? Clam diggers and a Tee? Lots of folks here will run around in shorts, shirt and sweatshirt, peeling off the top layer as needed.

It's about 62F here now and raining.

Chunks, my condolences to you and the family. Losing a loved one is always hard and especially so during the Christmas season.

Dear Rob:

I see you have 'whats his name' and Emily travelling to contend with. Now's the age when there is never a dull moment. Sarah is travelling today as well - back to Fredericton to work until New Year's eve. She is travelling with roommate.

Yesterday we had yet another pig-out at husband's brother's place in Sussex. The whole clan in attendance and I don't know how many that is. We cooked the biggest ham that would fit in our oven and it is all gone except a couple of slices for Sarah to take back to Freddy.

The matriarch of the family passed away on Christmas day (Hub's mothers side) so it looks like the rest of my vacation will be filled with family/funeral stuff. I had hoped to sneak over to Grand Manan and surprise Gerald and Jeanne for a little visit, but it looks like Thursday will be the funeral day.

Well, all are moving here so better go see what is up. Have a good one.

So far here it is like plus 2 and dead calm. In other words - nice. Hope it stays that way.

Word. Chunks.
