Before I head into another work week – albeit a short one (yippee!) – it’s time to take a look back at three beautiful things from the previous one. Except today there are four, given recent events in Ottawa.
1. The annual Christmas Cartoon Sing-Along Party went off without a hitch, and everyone (including me) had a good time. Our fun evening was capped off by a surprise visit from friends with their beautiful new baby son in tow.
2. Out of nowhere, Joanne calls and tells me she’s in my (office) neighborhood and wants to grab lunch. Good company and grilled cheese with tomato soup cheer up what is otherwise a cold and uninspiring day.
3. My brother calls to tell me that his Secret Santa gift at work was a really nice pair of Caps gloves – and that they will be just perfect to round out my Winter Classic ensemble. I was so touched by his excitement over sharing his gift with me.
4. And speaking of the Caps, they snapped their losing streak tonight and I am once again a happy hockey fan. C-A-P-S! Caps! Caps! Caps!
