This parade of boats was really fun last night. We sang carols, punctuated by lots of Ro-Ho-Ho cheers. There were a lot of boats in the parade and all were decorated in creative ways. It was really a great start to getting in the Christmas spirit.
We did a 2.5 hour row and then went to a local seafood restaurant for some great oysters. Nothing like the first oysters of the season. My father taught me to eat mine raw, but now I prefer them roasted or fried. It cuts down on any zoonotic diseases. I don't fancy getting hepatitis at this point.
Today we're going to go Christmas shopping, watch the downtown Christmas parade, and get some decorations for the sailboat. It should be a fun day.
I'm happy and filled with a great deal of peace today. I can choose to look for the good things in each day or I can be stuck in worry and frustration. I would much rather take the uplifting approach. There's a lot to be grateful for. And most of it is right there under our noses, in front of our eyes, and sitting beside us. Have a great Sunday.
