Doubly Gifted

P1030198

I was gifted twice this Christmas: first was the most wonderful Christmas Eve hike on Mount Tzouhalem in warmth and sunshine – and then today – Christmas Day – Up Maple Mountain in slightly less warmth but again, abundant sunshine and wonderful company.

Stella and I hiked to the top and I actually packed a sandwich! What I am saying here is that, instead of wolfing down a Cliff Bar and getting back on the trail, we actually stopped.  We sat down! I te a sandwich. Yes – it was that kind of wonderful day!

To cap it off (and this was before I even got to the trailhead) when I got in my car to drive to Crofton, it was exactly nine a.m. – and that was when the CBC began broadcasting The Messiah! Glorious music! Perfect music for Christmas morning.

What else can I say about this wonderful day? I drove home the long way. I fed Abby. I had a hot bubble bath. I am sitting here feeling doubly gifted and doubly blessed.P1030201 P1030203 P1030205 P1030208 P1030209 P1030210
