Hope everybody had a spectacular holiday.
L-O-V-E-D all the videos people posted.I’d never seen any of them.Thank you all.
Things went very well at the bunkhouse under the circumstances.DW made her ham with the gooey 7-up and brown sugar glaze,cheesy diced potatoes with bits of ham and her corn casserole.DIL brought a crockpot of little meatballs in some kind of barbeque sauce and stepdaughter made a big tray of her sugar,peanut butter and thumbprint cookies and little gingerbread balls coated with brown sugar.Given my shrewd negotiating skills,I traded her the leftover corn casserole for the cookies,which I am enjoying at this moment with my first cup of coffee as I type this.
The little ones gathered around the computer and I pulled up ‘I Want A Hippopotamus For Christmas’ and a couple other kids’ songs they sang along to.
I only got one physical gift,a coffee cup my 4 year old granddaughter had picked out that says “I Love My Grandpa.”
Money-wise,not much,really.When I gave her a big hug and told her how much I liked it she smiled the smile of the innocent when they know they have pleased someone they care about.That cup means more than gold to me.Every time I use it,I’ll remember the day I got it and the precious gift God gave me named Olivia.
Please feel free to use this as an open thread to share your day with the rest of us.
I may start posting the Grudge again tomorrow or so,but I’m in too good a mood to tackle it right now.
