Hello and a belated Merry Christmas to everyone.
Again, I must apologize for the lack of posts. It was a combination of being overworked and underwhelmed at the thrift stores in December. I'm going for a poke about this afternoon. I don't want to jinx things, so that's all I'll say on the matter.
Last night, we went to the Mackenzie House in downtown T.O. for Hogmanay, or Scottish new year. It was a lot of fun. There was a band who were dressed in period clothes from the mid-17th century and played traditional music from the British Isles. We ate haggis, oatcakes and shortbread. Mmm, it was terrific. I've become obsessed with historical buildings lately. The Mackenzie house was once the home of newspaper publisher and rebellious mayor of Toronto, William Lyon Mackenzie. He was also the grandfather of Mackenzie King, the somewhat bonkers PM of Canada from the 1920s to the 1940s.
