Boxing Day 2012

Today, finally, I think, we're going to go see Sherlock Holmes [crosses fingers]

Dinner turned out quite well, this despite the fact we had to use the gas grill again, since the oven part is backordered till the New Year, and despite the fact the propane tank ran out part way through cooking. Really awesome gravy, if I do say so myself. My brother reminded me he had the immersion blender to take lumps out, and I was scandalized. I told him there would be no lumps in my gravy! LOL One bummer was that mum came down with the stomach bug of doom about two hours before dinner. Talk about crappy timing. I have a pot of turkey soup on currently so she'll have something to eat when she's feeling up to it.

Coolest gift ever: reproduction antique door knob from Nin! I love antique door knobs, and have wanted one for ever. even bought a heavy wooden door for my room a few years ago for a future one. Course, bro's never put the door up for me, but will have to do it now. Need to look into getting some hinges and hooks to match.

Xmas TV: had time to watch one thing last night, either Doctor Who or Downton Abbey Christmas special. Downton won. We'll watch DW tonight.
