I finally figured out how to turn the TV on. There is cable here. But there is still nothing on. I left it on in the background so it’s not so quiet in here.

Dayle ventured to the basement and promptly got into a yowling match with Macbeth and Twig.

I feel disconnected and unplugged from the world… and I don’t mean just digitally, although that’s part of it. First Christmas I’ve spent alone in a long time, I guess.

    Hi. I know you don’t know me but I have been reading your postings with some interest now. I actually took the time to take out my trusty 1999 Rand McNally Atlas to see what kind of change you really had made. To my astonishment I found out that New Liskeard was very far North with a small population of only 5112! 5112! That takes guts that all I can say for now.

    As an aside it is very beautiful country. I once traveled through Sudbury and I found it beautiful in a haunting kind of way.

      Hi there,

      Sudbury is almost surreal, the way it looks. I can see why people would think it resembles the moon.

      It’s really quite beautiful up here. There are a lot of Old growth red pine forests and all sorts of lakes and rivers everywhere.

      Definitely a huge change from the city of Toronto, though. It will take a little getting used to.

    *hugs* Happy Christmas, anyway. Sorry you’re stuck alone!

      Thanks. 🙂 I’m trying to make the best of it, and just pretend that Christmas has been postponed a few days. Plus, there’s stuff coming in the mail to me, and I love that anticipation! 😉

      Merry yo-ho-ho-ho and a bottle of rum to you, too.
