We had a lovely typical Saturday today. We went to recycling in the morning and picked up the Globe and Mail newspaper and some milk at the store. We had a simple lunch then JM watched hockey in the TV room and I played with origami over at the studio/cottage. Then I had a nice 40 minute walk up Wren Road at 4 PM, during which dusky time I saw 4 deer and a flicker. Then home to start our New Year Eve's dinner, macaroni and cheese by special request of the other diner. In honour of the occasion, I made Cheese and Pasta Gratin from Alice Water's Simple Food.
|The house looks very welcoming as I return from my walk.|

|This is a wonderful cook book.|
