recreation / relaxation
This is a different sort of Christmas for our family. Because my older brother and his family are not arriving until the 27th we are delaying our Christmas celebration. So Christmas day was not filled with the usual excitement of opening presents and a big Christmas dinner - instead we enjoyed a quite day (there will be children here later). I spent some time with a friend walking at a local park. It felt so good to get out and exercise. It was more like a warm spring day than a cold Christmas day. There were a lot of families outdoors - enjoying their time together - fishing, flying new motorized aircraft toys, walking their dogs, trying out new scooters... walking off Christmas dinner. In the middle of a big empty field I saw this tree with gourd bird houses hanging from it. When I walked up to it I realized the "tree" had been put together by man - it's all real wood but the branches have been manually grafted on. It reminded me of a Christmas tree with huge ornaments. Very interesting don't you think? A high-rise bird hotel. / i enjoyed a day of cooking (made some dishes that i was very proud of - pumpkin creme brulee - yum) with my dad, but after cooking, and eating too much, it was time for one of my favorite pastimes - to bring out all my old disney movies and decide which one i would watch ( i'll admit, i love my disney movies - it makes me nostalgic). today i watched one of my all-time favorites, "the fox and the hound". that movie makes me cry every time, but it's so good. do you have a favorite disney movie?

If you care to visit, I, Leslye, have another blog - AutumnSun where I ramble around different paths and pleasures of my own.
