Merry Christmas

Bridget & Jeremy on Christmas Day

It’s been busy this year – I’ve only now managed to get a few minutes of down-time to write a note wishing you all the best over the holidays and into 2006.

We’ve had a great holiday so far, spending time with my folks, Bridget’s folks, and lots of friends from the Lower Mainland.

I’m staying in Burnaby for the holidays but hope to be back in Campbell River for a week sometime in January. Hopefully there’ll be a few of you around to lift a glass with me when I’m there. Once I’m on the Island I usually try to make it down to Vic too – so count on seeing me there sometime early in the New Year.

I just finished reading a great book – A Million Little Pieces, if you haven’t read it, check it out.

We watched The Dukes of Hazard movie last night – Hello Jessica Simpson! All in all it was a pretty funny couple of hours – exactly what I expected. Did I mention Jessica Simpson?!

I hope everyone is healthy, safe, and having a great holiday season. Looking forward to a great 2006 for all!

Canucks vs. Ottawa & Friday Night Poker

Everyone had a great time last night what with the Canucks shootout win, a few pints, and lots of hot poker action.

Feel free to leave some comments here.

Congrats to Jen and Scott – the winner and second place.

Wintery Views – Burnaby, BC

Winter View of Burnaby Cemetery

Awoke about 9am to a sunny morning with snow on the ground. While having my morning coffee I thought I’d better pull out the camera and snap a few shots of the view from the apartment patio…and I actually did it. The picture above is of the north-east view from our patio.

Snowboarding at Grouse Mountain, Vancouver

Bridget and I went snowboarding at Grouse Mountain today. They’ve received 40cm in the last few days and had a base of 140cm today. The snow was great and their new high-speed chairs are superb. It was Bridget’s second time snowboarding and by the end of the day she was linking turns and riding quite comfortably – I’m looking forward to watching her progress.

There’s more snow in the forecast so I expect we’ll be up the local hills fairly regularly in December. I’ll keep you posted on our experiences.
