Christmas Eve

I set the alarm for 8:30 this morning and was still sound asleep at 9:30 when exbf came AND the alarm was still going off. That sort of shocked me. He fed the chickens and brought back an egg...yay Maggie May.

The turkey breast was still in the crock pot. Dressing was ready for the oven. He did not want corn with dressing. I never put the sweet potatoes in to bake. So, we had turkey, dressing, green beans, cranberry sauce. I never got the jello done either, long story.

After lunch we went to the Night at the Museum movie, or whatever it is called. The movie was much better than I thought.

After the movie, I went to Walmart to get Quaker Oats. I remarked to a cashier that this was the smallest crowd I had ever seen on Christmas Eve. She wholeheartedly agreed and said it had been slow all day. What's with that? Only the candy aisle was crowded.

We drove separate cars to the movie, since he was going on the a church event in Birmingham. Right now, I am freezing, but am trying to save on electricity. The city called me and told me they will put a concrete box around my new water stuff in the ground. The plumber did it the easy way for HIM and now things are on my side where the city does not have to pay. It will be on my side, so I have to pay for repairs. At least I won't need a shovel to dig down 8 inches to cut off my water or whatever. It is sooo much easier to lift a metal lid.

Christmas Day will be leftovers. I love them, so not Maybe I will bake the pie I never got around to baking before Christmas. I can catch up on washing.

So, Christmas is essentially over for me. All gifts were mailed and/or delivered. I can rest!  Is there a parade on TV tomorrow?

Later tonight, a green salad will offset a heavy lunch and candy.

Your turn
Is your Christmas celebration all over?


  1. Merry Christmas Linda! Have a great rest of your evening and day tomorrow.

  2. Merry Christmas Linda! May your New Year be blessed.

  3. Dear Linda,
    Have as good a Xmas day as possible. I know it's difficult for you in so many ways but we can but hope your day is at least peaceful.

    I also wish you a much HAPPIER New Year.

    Love and best wishes, Phil.

    1. Philip H,
      Thanks Phil. It is difficult. Hopefully, I can get the water issues under control once and for all. The next year just has to be a little more happy.

      Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to you.

  4. I hope your Christmas is pleasant and relaxing. Ours has been largely postponed (guest in the house who doesn't celebrate). Later today. Perhaps.

    1. EC,
      Nothing is happening here! However, I would not postpone my celebration for someone who did not celebrate. Okay, maybe postponing would be more pleasant. Have fun.
