Life & Events > Christmas


Christmas at my sister’s turned out nice, and it is so gratifying when your cooking turns out well — especially when you’re an untalented cook. Everyone stayed away from dangerous subjects like politics (we are a mixed family, although nearly all blue/lefty) and everyone behaved herselves. The sister hosting us all has a lovely house and lots of land. My oldest sister and her husband are really happy in retirement, never setting an alarm clock again, they said. She was a nurse, and her husband was most recently a judge. Now he golfs, watches hockey and football; she takes line dancing class. I’m not clear on what kind of dancing this is, but it’s not country western. Whatever it is, there’s a big competition in it next year in Las Vegas (where they lived, previously).

No snow here either, just like Fredo’s. For this holiday I had a sudden urge to cook fudge for the first time, because I wanted to give everyone something sweet other than cookies they could take home, and found a really easy recipe that includes marshmallow fluff. It’s rather soft, and very good.

I’m making a resolution to do more things I enjoy, because it’s been such a yucky and sad year. The holiday planning was good for me, and now I feel like getting into more projects. I hope everyone has good holidays.

It sounds as if you had a lovely family time. We had a chaotic but wonderful family time on Christmas Eve and were with friends on Christmas day. I am wishing that we all have a happier new year with lots of fun things going on.

I had a post the other day that was all run together, and when I went to edit it, it wasn't - some kind of a bug. We'll have to remember to check our posts and give them a nudge.

I hope you have a wonderful year ahead - more what you want, and less what fate serves up for you.

I keep having to go back to edit posts, to add space so paragraphs don't all run together.
