The Best of Christmas

The presents weren’t the highlight of Christmas. I guess they never are. Enjoying the Spencer Smith Park lights are a tradition. Going to Hunter’s Teddy Bear Concert is another. We took William and Jadzia to the free train in Gore Park, downtown Hamilton. Previous years

it was Hunter. We liked taking him to the movie A Christmas Carol, in 3d. A new event was celebrating Jadzia’s birthday, her first, a delayed event that took place on Boxing Day instead of her actual birthday on Christmas. The best part of Christmas was family for sure.

Harry Potter at the Science Centre–writing and its perks

Hunter appreciates the perks of the writing career. He told me how lucky we were when we attended the press release for the new Harry Potter exhibit coming to the Ontario Science Centre in April. You can see the television cameras lined up in the back for the sneak preview.

An owl delivered the message, smoke rose and the flying car appeared in the background.
Best was that we saw the Body show after which I had missed the press date for as I was teaching in Brant Hills School at the time. I fell asleep during my favourite star show in the planetarium, Hunter nudging me when I snored. He slept all through the drive home. Happily it was easy for me to stay awake. I have to agree with Hunter, being a writer is the best job in the world.

Leading up to Christmas

The holiday season began with a field trip to the Royal Botanical Garden in Burlington/Hamilton to get photos for the magazine. Jadzia and William enjoyed the outing among palm trees, koi fish and other exotic flora and fauna. Later in the month, we took a horse drawn wagon ride in the rain through Burlington and bought most of our gifts in the small, uncrowded, downtown shops that wrapped for us. Snow would have been nicer but it was still fun and free except for the shopping.

Death on Youtube

Lately, I’ve been feeling quite mellow and it has to do with the novel I’m working on.

Death on Youtube is about a girl who dies and has the clock turned back so that she can re experience her last 14 days, only with a difference.
Through her eyes, I see, hear, smell and feel things with a new intensity. Everything she experiences could be her last time. So she notices the pigeons nesting in the corner of the underpass for example. She watches the sunset and looks for shooting stars. (It’s late August)
In honour of my character, 14 year old Jade, I’m posting my list of things I like to do:
Chat on the phone with a friend.
Walk my dog early in the morning.
Watch Youtubes of other people’s pets doing crazy things or just being cute.
Look at the water (Lake Ontario from my deck) in the distance.
Drive along Lakeshore and see expanses of the water close up.
See boats and lighthouses.
Drink coffee and read the newspaper in the morning.
Read a book, anytime, anyplace.
Boil up something with brown sugar in it. I like to smell it and watch the bubbles break.
These are some of the more solitary experiences. I’ll add to this list as the more social things come up, like visiting with my grandchildren.
