This restaurant window sums up our Christmas holiday. We spent it in Quebec visiting my family and it was below zero every single day. I am one of those rare creatures who enjoys a good cold winter, but this really put a damper on our fun.
Oh, and on the first morning after we arrived, she made the mistake of licking a metal doorstop. I recounted this story to colleagues at work and they begged me to stop, so I will just leave it there.
Another fun thing that happened was that our windshield washer fluid, the one I buy in Canada that’s good to 40 degrees below zero, froze solid in the car, so we were unable to clean our windshield at all, and neither could anyone else.
There were no walks in the woods and no skiing. We sat around inside, eating too much and trying not to get on each other’s nerves. I had a good novel, which probably kept me sane.
So it was with some relief that we headed south after the holiday, back to Rhode Island where winters are balmy by comparison – until a blizzard hit just a couple of days after we returned, followed by sub zero temperatures.
Happy New Year!
