The Tinsel is Gone
Christmas is all over and I am a bit relieved. I certainly got a lot of loot this year and all of it very satisfying. Some of the
gifts that I gave...a necklace that needs an extender and a jacket need to be fixed. Ted can put on the extension and we can exchange the jacket. Such a shame because the jacket was exactly the kind of thing my friend Mary loves. They did not have another in a larger size.
We had family Christmas on Christmas eve and then Christmas dinner with our friends. Both events were lovely. The funniest thing that happened on Christmas Eve was walking into my bedroom and catching three year old Chandler eating out of Jose's bowl and feeding him at the same time she sampled his chicken. I did not tell her mom. Kids and dogs have been sharing food since time began. Chandler is unique and a child after my heart. She is sassy as can be and so much fun. While her brother calls me grandma, she calls me Jeri.
Ted deplores her naughtiness but he can't resist her.
Ted and I went out for breakfast on boxing day and then we just rested and had soup and pumpkin pie. I gave a lot of cookies to single women friends who were not cooking, sent pies and cookies home with the kids and made desserts for our Christmas day dinner.
I am through cooking now. I have a turkey carcass and could make turkey noodle soup if I were so inclined.
All in all, it was a fine Christmas and I am totally ignoring New
years eve. But I wish everyone of you a glorious New Year.
