Christmas at the Cabin, Day 2

Today was busy. We got up and had a breakfast of fried eggs, Canadian bacon and toasted English muffins. Then, we strapped on the snowshoes and took the dogs “around”. That is what we call our usual walk from the cabin north to the pond along one side of the valley and then back up the other side to the road that bisects our land. From there, we walk the road back to the cabin. It is about 1/4 mile altogether. It was windy!

Here is a photo of the pond in winter:

Here are a couple of photos of us rewarding the dogs for sticking close.

We cleaned the cabin and Lynne started on preparing for company later tonight. Throughout the afternoon she made two kinds of cookies plus some home made eggnog. Somewhere in the middle of that she made slug salad, which is a favorite and tasted great with a glass of white wine.

I cleaned some, and put the presents under the tree. After the cookies were done and the dogs were fed their dinner, Lynne decorated the mantle. Now we are just relaxing a bit before we heat up some home made tamales for dinner. After that, we’ll have some friends over for eggnog and cookies.
