Yesterday at 6:30ish am, I headed to Walmart to pick up a few groceries...stopped at Mickey D's and picked up breakfast muffins and I was home by 8:15 am. We ate and then went and visited a couple of friends, then I made my dish for Christmas Eve - made the burger/rotel/velveeta slow cooker dish - yum!
We all met at the clubhouse for caroling at 6:00, ate wonderful finger foods at 7, and then about 8 ish we had a round robin gift exchange...oh yea! We scored a tin of 3 kinds of popcorn an LED candle and a box of wonderful chocolates!
This morning we greeted each other with 'Merry Christmas, love you' and just relaxed in front of the computers with our coffee. I called Nancy in PA to tell her Merry Christmas and after we hung up I just cried, because I so badly wanted to call Mom & Dad and tell them the same thing. David just held me while I cried - I love that about him :)
We got ready and went over to the clubhouse for dinner at 2 pm. They served ham, scalloped potatoes, peas with pearl onions, coleslaw, pineapple chutney, and desserts. It was all very good!
Somehow or other I got 'volunteered' to make cornbread for the New Year's Eve party...so, on the 31st I will be elbow deep in cornbread fixin's...Someone will make black eyed peas, so that will be that! Looking forward to it!
Now it's time for a nap...and then go play card bingo at 6:30...
To all my friends, family and followers - I wish you a Merry Christmas!
