#100HappyDays Continued – Days 164 – 170
Another week of photos for your viewing pleasure on this wonderful Christmas Eve. I hope you enjoy the photos as much as I enjoyed each moment.
Day 164 – December 17, 2014: It seemed like a fun idea to roast our very own chestnuts – just like Martha Stewart. Once they were in the over, we realized neither one of us particularly like nuts. And upon tasting them we determined neither of us particularly care for roasted chestnuts. So, they all ended up in the garbage. Asides from the end product, it was a thoroughly happy chestnut roasting adventure.
Day 165 – December 18, 2014: Today is our wedding anniversary. We had great plans to celebrate with new tradition of giving each other simple gifts inspired by the traditional wedding gift for the year. Instead, we did absolutely nothing to celebrate and our old tradition of doing nothing is now ingrained. But we did enjoy each others company as we made shortbread cookies, and that was definitely happy.
Day 166 – December 19, 2014: Outdoor ice skating with Mr. MPB. Upon realizing that I have not been on skates in about 14 years, we decided to take it up again this winter. I am rediscovering basic skating skills and am slowly regaining my confidence on the ice. And, we are having so much fun skating together in the evenings on our local outdoor rink under twinkling lights!
Day 167 – December 20, 2014: We spent a wonderful day celebrating Christmas with my family, and we told everyone about our adoption plans! And, of course we opened our first Christmas presents of the year – my brother did an excellent job as I now have a new fancy bike computer with all the bells and whistles for my road bike! We had such a wonderful day, filled with countless happy moments.
Day 168 – December 21, 2014: We went out for a walk today to enjoy the unseasonably warm weather. On our stroll around the neighbourhood, we stopped and watched a squirrel playing and jumping in the trees (maybe, not playing so much as trying to run and hide from the 80lbs dog that was watching with great intrigue).
Day 169 – December 22, 2014: We are feeling mighty accomplished tonight – our house is clean and ready for guests; most of our groceries are purchased; and, our newest batch of red wine is now bottled.
Day 170 – December 23, 2014:
Wishing everyone splendid happy moments this Christmas season!

Beautiful pics as always! I especially adore the skating picture, because I took figure skating lessons for 12 years and love it. And I love the red wine too of course 😉
I also took figure skating when I was really little, but only for a year or two – it turns out, it easily came back to me. We have been having so much fun going figure skating – we even took Mr. MPB’s parents and his Dad put skates on for the first time in his life!
I love roasted chestnuts! So funny that you two went through all the trouble and don’t! Wow- squirrel action shot! How did the adoption plan sharing go? I love ice skating. Sadly, it’s unseasonably warm right now- high of 9C, so no skating for us 😦
I have no idea how I got that squirrel action shot, but I think he’s pretty cute. 🙂
Adoption sharing went surprisingly well – almost too well, it was weird. I’ll post about it soon, once I catch up on all my comments and have time to write something. 🙂
