It’s that time again! Oxbow celebrated the town light up and got the festive season kicked into gear the other night. We setup our live nativity again and it was great. Substantially warmer than last year which was weather from the depths of hades. This year we had very little wind which made it at least 17% better for man and beast alike!
We had our resident livestock guy Hubert bring us some sheep this year which is always a hit and the kids did great acting out the Bible characters. Nobody yet has volunteered their newborn to be baby Jesus though. Probably the -25ºC temperatures have something to do with that! lol
I threw in the Nikon Df and the ever versatile 16-35 f/4VR lens that I like so much for event photography. The Df lowlight capability makes up for the slower f/4 aperture, but I’m not going to lie, it’d be nice to have Nikon’s new 24 f/1.8G lens for evening event photography. I’m debating picking it up. But then again, I also want a new FujiFilm camera too. And if you get a new FujiFilm camera, chances are I’ll want the new 35mm f/2 lens to go with it… Contentment…Contentment…Contentment… 😎
Oxbow’s newest entrepreneur locally selling Sunset Gourmet is Ruth Dearlsey. Their products taste great, take little time to prepare and are perfect for any occasion. And she is hosting a really exciting come and go tasting party at the Friendship Center on Saturday Oct. 29th from 1-4. Everyone is welcome to come out and experience first hand all that Sunset Gourmet has to offer. On a personal note, we just sampled the peach mango habanero salsa the other night with a pork roast. It was unbelievable! Sweet heat in one convenient package. 8) But they make a huge variety of different stuff if heat isn’t your favourite. You really owe it to yourself to go and check it out! And, as a bonus, Ruth is giving away some really great prize baskets with a variety of Sunset Gourmet products and recipes. Come on down to the tasting party for your chance to take home some of that good ol’ gourmet goodness! 😀
