|Greenwich Park, London last weekend. Phone pic!|
Last night we went out to hear a band, the Groove Brothers: A guy on sax and a guy singing. They are so good, they do all the old Motown and George Benson hits... And they draw a great crowd who just dance like mad all night. I love these guys! It's nice to be packed into a pub rocking the house while freezing drizzle falls outside.
This afternoon two of my friends kidnapped me and took me downtown to 'help' one of them collect a pair of boots. (Nah, I have to vacuum the floor, I said... They rolled their eyes and intervened.) The town was busy with stalls, smells, Christmas music and lights. I was like a kid, grinning and eating junk and singing along with buskers. Christmas is in the air peeps!
I bought bird seed today, and will resume feeding the posse of blue jays who sat on the electricity line and glared at me all last winter.
How's the weather treating you? What preparations are you making? What's your favourite season?
