Like whoa. We had a lovely Christmas. The kids took such a more active part in the whole process this year, from decorating to helping hand out presents to helping each other with stuff. That was the best gift of all, I have to say.
It does feel like I was in the kitchen all day though! I made a big breakfast, a smallish lunch and then the big dinner. But the turkey came out really well, fresh bread and several sides. We were a bit light on the dessert angle and I had plans for more sides but we still were quite full when we managed to shove away from the table, LOL. I did dishes three times, gah! But still, it was nice to wake up to a clean kitchen so that was worth it.
One really annyoing thing? Our produce box and grocery delivery did not show up this week even though they had rescheduled delivery three times. I checked over and over to be sure they still had us for the 24th. Which they did and no they never even bothered to say they weren’t coming. To make matters even more annoying, they’ve rescheduled us to the 31! So I had to make due for our dinner last night with stuff we had and I made cookies instead of the cheesecake I’d planned on. It wasn’t the end of the world but it WAS shoddy service and I’m not pleased about that part. Our weather has stopped many a delivery over the last two weeks, I haven’t been able to get to the post office to mail out prizes and UPS is totally haphazard so I’m glad I finished up my gift shopping a few weeks ago.
The snow plow finally made it to our neighborhood and they’ve left four foot high snow banks against the driveways so no one can get out. Oh and at random in the middle of the streets too. My dude had to shovel through that to clear a path so he could get out to the grocery store (see the part above where we didn’t get our produce box, LOL)
Anyway, I didn’t write a single word yesterday. I watched movies (we got the Matrix blu ray box set and the Buffy box set so there was plenty to watch!), hung out with the kids and read a bit too. It was a lovely day. Now it’s back to work. I have Final Pass pages on Relentless and AAs on Sensual Magic as well as my chapter in No Reservations to finish up. Lots to do.
I hope everyone who celebrates Christmas had a good day yesterday! Enjoy your weekend
