We took Liisa sailing for the very first time. David had just finished
his sailing course and wanted to show off. It was a gorgeous sunny day
but on the water it was COLD.
The most important bit for Liisa was coco. We have a childrens book
where a little girl drinks coco on a sailboat and this made the
experience so much better.
We got a bit of spray on the cabin windows
But the sun was bright and sky blue, a rare November day
By the time we made it back to the marina the sun was setting
The boat we took out was Catalina 25, the same one we bought in August
For Thanksgiving we went to David's parents as usual.
I cooked the turkey and Liisa got the drumsticks.
The table was laden with food
As usual, we went on carousel rides once the Christmas carousel was up
And by the middle of the month got a wee Christmas tree. We had no
decorations so everything had to be made. Mostly by Liisa.
I sewed Christmas pajamas for all of us
