Christmas 2010

Sunday, December 26, 2010

Christmas 2010 was different to say the least. I worked on Christmas Eve and then went suicide shopping. I went grocery shopping, last minute gift shopping and even returned a few gifts I had bought earlier. I stopped by a friend's house and enjoyed good company and an okay movie. I then went home to wrap gifts. My daughter stopped by to pick up gifts around ten pm. My son dropped by around midnight to pick up gifts. I finally got to bed around one am.

I awoke around 5 am. to attend early morning (6 am.) worship services. Thankfully it was just two blocks away from my house and my young adult children purchased a remote car starter for me as an early Christmas gift. I absolutely love it! The sermon was entitled "Something To Shout About!" Indeed the birth of Jesus is something to shout about!

After service I dropped a sister off at home. It was then that I found out that everything was closed in observance of Christmas except CVS and a few Coney Islands. I was trying to decide what I was going to take to the family breakfast. I had muffins and juice but I thought I needed more. Thankfully the kids and my sister had it covered. I went home and dozed off until my daughter came by. We went to my sister's house and had a nice family breakfast. We ate and played games with the young children.

I decided since my children are adults I would cook and eat whatever I wanted for dinner instead of the traditional spread of food. I made lasagna and tossed salad. It was delicious. I watched "The Blind Side" movie and enjoyed the company of my children. It wasn't the crazy, hectic and chaotic Christmas of the past,but it was indeed different. I think I liked this holiday.

Lemonade Anyone?

Sunday, December 12, 2010

I'm so glad I'm an optimist. After the week I had last week I was looking forward to enjoying my weekend to the fullest. Needless to say, the perfect weekend does not exist. The candy buffet was a hit. I took pictures after I set it up. I will post pictures later. The red party was okay. The photographer's equipment malfunctioned so I only have a phone photo that a friend took of me.

I just got in from the play. The main character I went to see was replaced by another singer. The play was excellent and I was pleased with the performances of most of the characters. Lisa Payne was a supporting actress who stole the show. Her voice is phenomenal! The girl played her role extremely well. I'm just glad she is not my church's First Lady.

The weather outside is treacherous, but thank God for a vehicle with 4wd. Overall, I would say I made the most out of the weekend that a pessimist would have whined about. I made lemonade out of lemons this weekend.



Working Out The Weekend

Saturday, December 11, 2010

This has been an extremely busy week for me. Last Thursday I received the news that my former pastor had passed away. What a devastating blow. He was only 59 years young. This Thursday I attended his homegoing services. It was a beautiful celebration of life.

Today I'm working my side hustle as a Candy Buffet Designer. The occasion is a 40th birthday celebration for 200 guests. In addition to my day job I must set up the candy buffet.

Tonight I will be going to a red party. I fretted over what to wear about a month ago. Red is not my color of choice. I finally found a red maxi dress that I can dress up or down. I found some killer bling jewels. I will be carrying my slippers in my hand, as the nasty old weatherman predicts 3-4" of snow.

Sunday night is girls night out. My daughter, my neighbor and my sister friend are attending a play in the city. I'm excited about the play. I'm going to see "I'll Be Home For Christmas". It's a contemporary spin on the prodigal son parable.

What I'm I doing blogging? I got work to do!

Today was my only day off. I'm not complaining. I'm blessed to have a job. I woke up early. I gave thanks for my blessings. I lazed around and enjoyed my day. I cooked a herb-roasted turkey breast, roasted some root vegetables, baked some sweet potatoes and made a little dressing. I plan on making my green beans tomorrow. I ate in moderation. I didn't even touch the cheesecake that my daughter made for me. I watched tv until it started watching me. I called and texted several friends and family. Overall, I had a very blessed day. I hope your day was pleasant.
