We don't celebrate Christmas with the typical fanfare. In fact, we don't decorate. We don't put up a tree; We don't exchange gifts.
We usually make a nice meal and spend time reflecting on the year and telling one another what we're thankful for.
This year we're skipping the big meal because we just had ham a week ago. We'll fix a big dinner on New Year's Day.
We did, however, stimulate the local economy today. Bought more new windows, new kitchen sink and faucets, above the counter microwave with vent, new toilet and filled the gas tank.
Good think our holiday baking is done because Sweetie came home and tore the kitchen apart.
I thought I'd come home and spend a day curled up reading & sipping tea. NOT. I've hauled old stuff outside; burned paper garbage and done a load of laundry after unloading everything on the counters and fixing lunch.
Strange, I thought this was a holiday.
Oh well, we thankful. Even if we're working on Christmas Eve and Christmas day.
Have a safe and blessed Christmas everyone.
