Merry Christmas!



The fire in the fireplace is burning, all the Christmas lights are lit, I said, 'To hell with the sweet dough!' and almost forgot to bake the pie that I am to bring to dinner later on. The piles from Santa are out, the stockings stuffed. (I will not do another load of laundry until Christmas is over!) Mom-mom made marinade with shrimp for dinner - - she just whips it right up! We ate too many cookies and a lovely antipasto, and lots of shrimp cocktail. Whatever can't get done WON'T get done! That is more than okay.

God bless you and Merry Christmas. God bless America.

We had our family celebration last night. I forgot to set out the shrimp cocktal. Oh, well. I can take it today to my neighbor's house, where we will be having Christmas dinner.

Merry Christmas, Monica! Don't overwork yourself.

Merry Christmas, I gotta take the scalloped potatos over to my folks house for the present-opening orgy.

Merry Christmas to you and yours. The sun has shined for a few days and the blizzard snow has begun to melt down in the Denver Metro area. But more snow is on the way starting Thursday and into Friday.

My neighbor greatly appreciated my bringing in the shrimp cocktail. She was busy for most of the day tending to her granddaughters, so didn't have much time to prepare the Boxing Day feast.

No apology necessary, Wordsmith. Thanks so much - we had a great Christmas and a very slow and relaxing week.

I hope you had the same and I wish you a beautiful New Year.
