Quiet as a mouse in the house (said with a Canadian accent for Nathan & Chloe) on this Christmas Eve morning.
I hitched up my sleigh (aka Honda CRV) at 4:30 AM this morning, so that I could take my friend to the airport for a 6:30 AM flight. Her sleigh is in Santa’s workshop this week and it wasn’t going to make the flight. It lost its magic powers. We met at the barn and my lead reindeer was already awake awaiting carrots & cookies. That reindeer has way too much energy and I often wonder when it sleeps. Always good to have an alert forward thinking reindeer 🙂
I navigated the sleigh to the airport with plenty of time to spare. I saw lots of wandering reindeer. I think they need a job! When I arrived back in town, I thought about grabbing breakfast for everyone, but the local grocery with their scrumptious bagels doesn’t open until 7:00 AM. Clearly it is not yet feeding time. Now I wait …until the sun comes up to start this awesome day.
