Thank God it’s Friday…someone working in the 9-5 5 days a week sector must have coined that phrase. I do love Fridays though. Saturdays I can actually get up and do whatever I want – the only day of the week I can and it’s often that I do a little bit of everything combining work and play. No relaxation for me unless I take a trip, lol..it’s sad!
It’s beautiful on the island today. Took the dogs out for their morning walk but cut it a bit short so I could get going on the computer. I have 2 days left to have everything done being as the girls and I will be goin’ wild on our yearly shopping trip on Sunday and Monday. I want to say it’s cold today but if you’re wrapped up and that sun is shining it’s beautiful – NO WIND. Absolutely no wind which is very very unusual.
Today I’d like to talk about how you celebrate your Christmas Eve. Every year, I always manage to forget something and have to go out and a few times I’ve even battled the mall (which was fun really) but this year I was thinking about doing something a little different than in the past. My daughter wants to spend time with her Dad on Christmas so we thought wouldn’t it be cool to open presents on Christmas Eve with holiday stuff on TV and finger foods? Then, the next day which would be Christmas, everyone can do what they want to do while I’m cooking the Christmas feast. Wait. Something’s wrong with that picture.
Maybe I can not be as elaborate as I was at Thanksgiving. I do have a turkey and the daughter is also getting a ham from work so we’ll have those and of course you have to have macaroni and cheese and dumplin’s and turnip greens so we’ll have those but how can I change up a bit? Susan’s Seafood has these fantastic crab balls she’s selling for 50 cents a pop, never tried them but the man who was getting them the last time I was in there getting fish said they were delicious and he was back ordering more. So I might do that. I’ll have to figure out what else to fix.
So I have a question. Have you ever done the unwrapping on Christmas Eve because you wanted to save Christmas for something else and how was it?
