Today me and the Sis went grocery shopping, my least favorite of the Suzie Homemaker routines. I just had to ask one nice tall man to reach something too high up for me.
We are having our big dinner the 24th, because my oldest has to be at work at 8:oo in the evening on Christmas Day. He doesn’t want to eat a big meal and then go to work. I guess it’s not too pleasant to drive the big fire truck with a full stomach. We are having ham and all the trimmings. Christmas Day I am making Lasagna. The Joe-Man calles it Irish Lasagne…I’m not sure why…but he likes it.
We never really decorated our Christmas tree, just not in the Holiday mood. It’s just two months since my Mom passed away. My youngest son came home from college and surprised me by putting the lights on the live tree in the family room, and just hung candy canes all over it. It really looks beautiful.
Wrapped the little bit of presents I bought and they are under the tree. I didn’t buy much but I still spent a lot. I got tickets for the four of us for a concert that cost me more than double the face value, but the seats are in the orchestra pit. If we any closer we’d be sitting on their laps. Can’t wait for that.
As for today…happy cookie baking to everybody! I’m going to the bakery. I hate to bake.
Nice thing about your kids being 23 and 25. They don’t wake you up at dawn’s crack to open gifts. They come down when they smell coffee.
Hope everyone has a few peaceful days…not too much eggnog OK?
Happy Holidays to All
