God knew what He was doing when He sent a gentle breeze and brought a lovely butterfly to set my heart at ease. The happiness of your friendship and the gentleness of your words have touched my life in special ways and now I feel assured. Thank you for your loyalty and for reading everyday. I only hope you find things to make a happy day.

We came home early that night and just collapsed in front of the TV. No need for a snack that night. Yesterday I started putting the gifts away and made turkey soup with the carcass. I wondered why I volunteered to make soup...it was a chore yesterday...I really wasn't into soup making. The house was a disaster with groceries all around, soup ingredients on the counter and stove, folded laundry on the kitchen table, presents on the dining room table and gifts under the tree in the living room, and containers of cookies too.I've said before...I can't work in a mess...so I was struggling :( Well, by evening it all got done and I could just sit and do nothing.
We got several nice phone calls during the two days....connecting with people we don't see often.
Christmas day we woke early and went to Mass....came home and started making dinner. We had invited a friend, who was spending the holidays alone this year, over for a pot roast dinner. That went well and when he went home...we just spent the evening watching TV....and going to bed early.
We have one more thing planned...Joe's grandson Matt is a police officer and had to work...so he and his wife and baby are coming later on.
All in all it was a nice Christmas. I started so early with shopping and baking.... then wrapping and cards. I've already been thinking about next year. I think we might make a few changes...just thoughts going around in my head.
Now things are slowly getting back to normal. Our normal that is.We are here...just waiting to see what Mother Nature has in store for us this winter. The birds had their Christmas treats and they are fat and happy. It's getting light out and the cardinal has been here already. I know that the scrabble game is in my email and daughter LuAnn is waiting for me to play a word. I gotta go and see if I can beat her at this game.
