Christmas Aftermath

We had a nice Christmas with everyone home. The meal was a little tricky because it was cooked at two houses. There was a roast in each oven. The pies were cooked at our house early pictured in the video on Dr John's blog. Reason for hair not combed and the blank stare at cupboard. The vegetables were cooked with roast at the other house and so were the rolls. The ham was moved around and was late being cooked. It did get done.

Today I took back an
X-box 360 game because my son doesn't have an x-box 360. I looked at a X-box 360 and they are not cheep.

I have to find some time tomorrow to set up my Christmas outside decorations because the wind snow storm blew them all down. Next year I hope to get them out before the ground freezes and I can stake them down. They were sitting on my front porch.

The night before the night before Christmas

It is the night before the night before Christmas and I am trying to get every thing ready. My son from Madison will arrive Monday.My Shopping for gifts is done but not for the meal. We ordered a rib roast and had to go out in the bad weather to get it. The storm should stop.

I wish everyone a Merry Christmas.

Best Christmas Gift

One of the blogs I read asked: " What was your best Christmas gift?" My answer is Jesus. The second was my husbands life. The third is my family all together.

As a child I was always disappointed because my parents gave me what they thought I should have such as a doll etc. There was one doll I wanted and that was a bride doll which I got but I didn't get the one with a change of clothing. I wanted trucks, trains ,garages . I did get a train but not like my neighbors who were five boys. Their train was electric, I got a wind up one. If I had saved it I could have gotten a lot of money for it. As I got older I liked sewing clothes for the dolls. I also liked doctor kits.Some of the gifts I liked were a round plaid purse, and a record player.

I was talking this over with my daughter and I told her I found myself to be very ungrateful. She pointed out that my biological parents had died and what I really wanted was them. Maybe so but I feel bad that I wasn't satisfied.

Today I am very thankful the life I have.

Today the doorbell rang. The only people who come and have rung our doorbell ,were children wanting us to come and watch them ride their bikes in a contest, and somekind of mailperson. I expected a mailperson. It was not. It was a woman from St. Marks, our new church. She handed me a bag. The bag had cookies and a beautiful hand made blanket. I would have liked to invited her in but my house was a mess, from the dog and me wrapping presents. The dog wasn't wrapping but had taken every toy and bone out and some torn up tissue layed on the floor. I was dressed in my clothes to go and work on the train layout and I had not even combed my hair. She said she was asked to bring the bag over and drop it off. Even if I was not prepared I was very grateful for the gifts because it said we were thought of. A big high five for St Marks.

Dr John was in bed most of the day. I would like to get him to the doctor if things are not better tomorrow. He is a hard person to get to go see a doc.

My daughter and I took a quick trip to Oshgosh to shop. They have an Outlet Mall.

A Christmas Tree

The tree was easier to put up. It looks nice, so the humans are happy not so the dog. The tree is small and sitting on a round table. It has a train that goes around it. When the train is on the dog goes and hides. Tonight she took to barking at it.
I just fell asleep at the keyboard so I will call it a night.
