Happy Boxing Day

img_6313Hope everybody had a good Christmas. I am not a Christmassy person so this year I got the greatest gift of all–not having to do anything on Christmas Eve and sleeping in on Christmas Day.

I inadvertently took part in a holiday tradition that I’ve never done before. I went to a retail shop on Boxing Day. I have several excuses:  I needed to get out and get some excercise, Mr. Andrew and I are in Brockville visiting his mom and because the weather report was calling for freezing rain, I needed to stock up on yarm and celery just in case we got iced in for a couple of days.

I walked to Giant Tiger. Only the freezing part of the forecast happened and I was woefully under dressed. I got my groceries and  I also bought a jean jacket and heavy joggers. My justification was that I would have at least one more layer of warmth for the walk home.

And then I ended up taking a cab.
