christmas day

Christmas Day, I woke up at my normal time (7:00) so that I could make breakfast and send Satoshi off to work.

Then, I went to Nakanoshima to check out the duck since it was the last day that it would be there.

The wind was blustery and icy. There were even some flurries (woot!)

Even though the weather was overcast, the duck did look nice during the daytime, don't you think?

I walked back to Umeda and stopped in at Burdigala for a cappuccino and something sweet.

Then before going home, I stopped in to the department store food floor and bought some salads and some chicken for our dinner.

I noticed that the Hankyu trains are all decorated and eagerly awaiting the Year of the Rabbit.

How was your Christmas?

p.s. I tried one of the OneGlass wines (Pinot Grigio) with dinner...even if it is only 1 half glass (100 ml), it was still delicious.

do you happen to know how long the duck will be there? he's a cute duck anyway :)

Christmas was so so as we didn't really celebrate X'mas here but i'm thinking maybe next year I should roast whole chicken (since turkey is expensive) for the sake of it. I miss festive food!
