While most people have been busily showing all their lovely Christmas decorating and baking, we don't even have our tree up. December has thus far been damp and overcast with just one afternoon of air flurries - snow, but nothing on the ground. Sunday evening, we enjoyed the Christmas cantata at Speedy's church in The City, in which he sang. Afterward we went back to his little basement apartment, Speedy having bicycled there still wearing his suit and tie.
I asked to see the resident rodents but Speedy said they stay pretty much hidden. He keeps them mostly contained above the bathroom by stuffing boxes of raisin bran cereal above the ceiling tiles. "They eat all the cereal, but leave the raisins," reported Speedy, "fussy rats." Before leaving for home, we dropped Speedy off downtown at the outdoor skating rink and enjoyed the lovely night a bit and then came home for soup.
