It is almost midnight so I am hardly able to think. It has been a whirlwind day.
We all sat around the Christmas tree watching our family and the dogs. There was laughter and chatting and it seemed like there were gifts from everyone. We just sat and watched one another opening gifts. No-one hurried and we had back ground music and it was just a great feeling sitting with family at Christmas.
I bought the Christmas tree and I loved it.
Our son decorated the tree and I loved it.
My family bought me a tracker and I was so wanting to buy myself one but the family bought it and I loved it.
Even DH was laughing and they had given him gifts and I loved it.
I bought a ham and we had a great meal. Brussels Sprouts, Cauliflower, creamy mashed potato. I made my Raisin Sauce and I expected I had made it for DH and I but our son and DIL sampled it and went after more- and I loved it.
Our family went to Skype to open gifts from Las Vegas so her mother could see them all.
DH and I talked with his sister in England with no interruptions, he and his sister were chatting and laughing and they talked for a long time. I went to the kitchen and washed dishes. I stood at the sink and I could hear mumbled voices and laughter I was happy just listening how the house sounded today. Usually our house is quiet and we rarely have TV on. After the dishes I cut the ham and portioned it. I have been surprised how lean a good ham is. It was excellent and everyone felt full at dinner. Lots of vegetables were sampled .
Now it was almost time for our son to get ready for work. They all went down stairs and DH and I sat back in our chairs just going over the day,
We had holiday crackers we forgot to snap so we decided to do it on New Years eve.
We called our other sons and talked for a long time today.
Consequently I did very little Sparking today but I did do a late blog and spun the wheel.
I am happily weary. Pat in Maine.
