Christmas in March

Our two care boxes arrived today, many thanks to my kids. My large pictures for our large empty wall spaces. Books, magazines, food (maple syrup, molasses, worchestershire sauce, parmesan cheese), ziptop freezer bags, gifts, lots more stuff and my Rita MacNeil Christmas CD's. Which I immediately played. And played.

There is a company called MEEST (Ukrainian for Bridge) which delivers care packages into Eastern Europe. It costs $125 CAD for 30 kg (max. box weight) delivered right to your door. Usually less than 6 weeks door to door.

We had pancakes for supper. I shall make cookies tomorrow. Roast beef with real gravy, too. Now that we have shipped it over here, some of these items will soon be available in Ukrainian stores. Hah! (Murphy was an optimist).

Now I am going to bed. I have 50 pages of my report done and another 20 to go plus formatting and editing. Maybe tomorrow...Right now my brain is dead. I opened and closed Internet Explorer three times before I remembered why, that I was going to write my blog for the night.

Just one question, though. What is and what do you do with a giant red crinkle fish?


  1. Merry Christmas! Enjoy your treats. :D

  2. It's a cat toy!!! For Kumcha. Or Masha.

  3. "Ho! Ho! Ho!" Meeeeeerry Christmas, Al. And Tanya, too.

    Wait a minute. It's spring. The garden is going in. Soon it will be time to hoe, hoe, hoe.

  4. What? No hockey videos. What kind of Canadian retiree are you?

  5. Happy Christmas, Daddy-o!

  6. Don't call me no 'Ho. I'z a good girl, I am, I am.

    Hockey vids are for people with no lives.

    Thanks again for all the stuff, kids.

  7. Did you get the Samuel Johnson Dictionary? That was a hard one for me to give up, so I hope you have a good laugh over it.

  8. So you are the culprit. I didn't think I ordered it so knew it was a gift from you or Ky and was going to email and ask. Why didn't you write in it? It is hilarious.
