Little did I know the last time I posted it would be my last entry for a couple of weeks! Yesterday I started the task of taking down Christmas. Some of you look forward to getting everything down and cleaned the day after Christmas, but not me!
My mother comes home with me for close to a week. To me this is a most enjoyable part of the holidays. We play cards and games…shop the after Christmas sales and enjoy eating Christmas breads and drinking coffee out of Christmas mugs. It is sad for me when it comes to an end for another year.
We had a most unusual Christmas. We drove to my Mom’s house on icy roads a couple of days before Christmas and then we had a huge blizzard roar through on Christmas Day. We had planned on traveling home to spend Christmas at my daughter’s but while we were deciding if we should travel, they closed the interstate for two days! Snowed in with my mom, husband, two of my daughters, a boyfriend and a fiancé, we made the best of it. We taught some how to play a card game called Pitch. The young ones ventured out to buy a couple of new board games for us to play. The men shoveled snow and threw the Frisbee for the dog. Mom and I cooked and looked out the window at the Winter Wonderland before us.
December brought just under 25” of snow!
New Year’s brings more snow, cold temps and
Wishing you and yours a Blessed and Happy New Year!
