Boxing Day

We hope that every one had as nice a Christmas or other holiday as we did yesterday. Janet spent the morning cooking and baking. I went out early and bought coffees at Dunkin Donuts on Southard Street, enough to get through the day as the Coffee Plantation was closed so Diane and Theo could have a day off together. Then it was just wait for dinner. Janet and I went to see King Kong on Saturday afternoon, then spent a quiet Christmas Eve at home, watching half of Driving Miss Daisy from NetFlix, then a quiet Christmas day after talking to family. Katha, the Chicken Lady, came for dinner (we ate roast pork, not chicken).

It was a beautiful morning weather-wise today and continues so into the afternoon. The air temperature is 74 degrees, though the sun on my shoulder right now makes it feel warmer than that. When I got to the Coffee Plantation today, it was crowded and it looked as though there had been an early morning rush. Everyone must be gone to lunch now, though, as the shop is nearly empty, quiet.

It's sort of back to normal, although today is make-up day for Christmas having fallen on Sunday. All government offices are closed, while commerce has resumed every where else. The City seems busy with tourists, many in for a few days of R&R on or around the holidays. Today is also the first day of Chanukah and the first day of Kwanzaa, both multi-day celebrations that will run past New Year's Day (on the Gregorian calendar).

I'm using the day to get caught up on some things I left hanging last week.

So for now, Happy St. Stephen's Day, Happy Chanukah, and Happy Kwanzaa to all.
