Gee Wilikers!

It's COLD!  And here are all these great, beautiful places to share with our family, and it's pretty much too cold to enjoy them.

Yesterday, we adjusted our plans several times, shortened outings, and changed our minds about what was important.  Staying inside and playing games seemed a lot more appealing than venturing out.

We did, however, go out once, yesterday.  After a half-hour of bundling up (this is getting comical!), 9 out of 10 of us piled in two vans and headed to les chutes de-la-chaudière.  I love this place in the summer and in the fall.  I guess it's pretty enough in the winter, but my brain was freezing and I couldn't really focus.

Then we drove back to the Old City to see it at night.  Same story:  too cold to appreciate.  We walked around a little bit (mostly INSIDE the Chateau Frontenac) and then hurried home to a warm house and Italian meatballs in the crockpot!

And then we called my parents to wish them a Happy Anniversary...their 49th!

I'm sitting in our nice warm house right now, but just thinking about that outing yesterday makes me feel that I need a big ol' cup of, I'm going to have one!  

Ciao, Amigos! xxx
