It is that time of year again. The time of year when Canadians invade Florida .We are often fairly or unfairly blamed for bringing the cold weather with us
Hubby and I have been spending the winter months in the sunshine state for the past few years. Every year I find it harder to get organized. It isn’t just the packing, — it is the clearing out of the refrigerator, freezer and cupboards, tidying the drawers, organizing the closets and tidying up under the bathroom sinks. I know, I know– no guests will be here to look in my drawers or under my bathroom sink but for my peace of mind I like to leave knowing things are organized.
Shortly after our arrival in the states we become consumed with American politics. This season before leaving Canada I become partially consumed with Canadian politics. It wasn’t hard with all the NEGATIVE publicity about Mayor Ford. I also had the opportunity to listen to Senator Frum and in the evening of November 28 I attended a program and question and answer session with Justin Trudeau. Young Mr. Trudeau is the M. P. for the liberal party of Canada and leader of the Liberal Party of Canada. For the past number of years I have been a follower of the Conservative party of Canada and was not too impressed with the couple of T.V. interviews I saw of Mr. Trudeau. However in person Mr. Trudeau exhibited the charisma of his late father, former Prime Minister Pierre Elliot Trudeau and the good looks of his mother, Margaret. He spoke intelligently and sincerely and gave me food for thought for the next Federal election.
But enough of Canadian politics. Now it is time to look forward to relaxing in the sun and eating and drinking and enjoying life. Hope our American friends enjoyed Thanksgiving. Our Thanksgiving is in October but we have borrowed or stolen the American tradition of Black Friday. And for those who celebrate Chanukua, Happy Chanukua and enjoy those potato latkes.
