Merry Christmas from Peaks Island







Just a couple of pics today showing some of the snow around the neighborhood. It's been busy here on the Island getting ready for Christmas. I finished pulling together a nice pot of lobster stew for tonight's meal. Of course, the ladies of the house are now poised over the pot working their skills at "fixing" it trying to put the extra taste and texture required of a Christmas Eve dining experience. It's very difficult for Jill, an ex west coaster, to live with me, a lifelong New Englander meat and potatoes guy. Oh well, sure hope they don't lose the lobster taste by covering it with too much paprika and sherry!

Our weather has finally taken a turn toward "Warm". Of course it being late December, that means 40 degrees. This morning we started with snow of a couple inches followed by sleet and hail followed by rain followed by gray. Oh well, it's Maine so just wait awhile and whatever's going on will definitely change.

It's time for quiet now. Hannigan's Market closed at 1pm so let the baking begin with whatever's on hand. It's too late to make it to town for last minute shopping so sit down, be quiet and enjoy this most wonderful evening with family and close friends. Seasons Greetings to all from Peaks Island and if I could ever spell meli kalikimaka I'd send that out to my Hawaii clan.

Merry Christmas to you too, from Northern England. (No snow - that came and went, but you can never be too sure;). Just surfed onto your blog via a Neil Young song!
Peace and happiness to you over there in the 23rd State.
