Yesterday morning I woke up in Clackamas, Oregon. It was was a good day. I don’t eat breakfast as often as I should, but today I sat down to a “Northwest Scramble”, which was scrambled eggs with smoked salmon and capers. It was delicious and fitting for Oregon.
I was in a Christmasy mood. This is perhaps because my friend and coworker Hobe was singing one Christmas song after another on the jumpseat the day before. I joined in on some of them. I even helped out as she fumbled her way through The Twelve Days of Christmas.
As luck would have it, there was a Christmas movie playing at the cinema across the street from our overnight hotel. I texted Hobe and she joined me about half an hour later. We went to see The Man Who Invented Christmas- a brilliant, but possibly fictional movie about the making of Charles Dickins A Christmas Carol.
I highly recommend seeing this if you have the opportunity. It definitely helped me to feel the Christmas spirit! I love the fact that there wasn’t any trash in it either. One for the whole family- well it may be a bit slow for younger kids.
Afterward, we ate some sushi- which is something I try to do when I’m in town. It was Hobe’s first time there, but neither of us had much of an appetite. I usually do a lot more damage.
Today I’m enjoying a day off at the crashpad before tomorrow’s trip. So far I’ve watched a movie and eaten about four handfuls of peanut M&Ms l- so I’m feeling this great sense of accomplishment. I think Dawn is making chili for dinner.
