Yesterday was quite eventful. Zoya left in the dark for an Hawaiian vacation, we had the annual burger grind from 9 to 3 PM, went sledding at the golf course, and ended the day at the Alutiiq Museum staff Christmas party. Phwew.
Mike S, Lindsey, Lisa, Gregg and I ground 250 pounds of meat in our new 1.75 horse power grinder. That thing is a monster and we could not feed it fast enough. I think we could have thrown small trees into that thing and they'd come out the other end as wood dust. I had anticipated grinding all day but with the new grinder we finished in the early afternoon.
And then we rushed off to the golf course to go sledding. I was a little bummed I did not have time to get together our ski gear because the cross country skiing looked excellent. But the kids and dogs had a great time sledding with their cousins. Today we'll try cross country skiing.
Nora ended up with a box of cereal at the Staff Christmas party white elephant gift exchange. But that's OK because someone ended up with a 'cat bib' from us. The cat bib is supposed to keep cats from killing birds outside. Busy Day. Patrick
