Christmas 2013



I made a half-hearted attempt at decorating for Christmas.  I wrestled the tree out of its box and hung a few ornaments.  The tree is a little bare because I didn't bother getting down the ornaments from the high shelf in the garage…the 
easy-to-reach ones are good enough.  There's a wreath on the door and garland on the mantle.  That's enough Christmas to suit me.

We're not buying presents.  We don't need more stuff and neither do any of our family members.  When the opportunity presents itself, we'll pay for a fun activity or some other treat for our kids and grand kids.

Even though we're not the most festive house, I couldn't stop myself from baking.  I'm also struggling not to eat all those goodies I've prepared.  Tomorrow we will have traditional Christmas food…turkey, ham, stuffing, mashed potatoes, yams, and will eat leftovers for the rest of the week!

It will be quiet at Nana's this Christmas and I will count my blessings and be grateful for all the gifts I have been given this year.

Merry Christmas to all my cyber friends.  I wish you peace, joy and love.

  2. Same here, we just finished a really nice two-person Christmas Eve dinner, with leftovers for the whole day tomorrow. I'll augment them with some fresh-baked sweet potatoes, which are just like dessert to me! Merry Christmas to you, too, Jann Sending you back some cyber hugs. :-)

  3. There is nothing wrong with a quiet, easy-going Christmas. That's how ours was this year - no visitors, little decor (like you) - and it was great! Merry Christmas, #1 Nana!
