Merry Christmas Diary!!.. Thought I would pop in briefly to leave a few thoughts before continuing on with the festivities on the path least traveled and contemplate what the future may have in store….
In order to not have to cook or clean dishes on Christmas day, decided to prepare the meal the middle of last week so cooked the dressing, green beans, potatoes and cooked a small ham,,
Got everything cooked for me and Bree and then put in a plate (not a regular plate) heaping full ….
And put in the freezer…got out of the freezer this morning and all I have to do is put in a microwave and heat up.. No cooking, no mess… clever, eh?… 🙂 …
Got up this morning and warmed up a Scottish egg…
And then opened presents… I received some nice gifts and Bree enjoyed hers also… her present was in a bag…
After a little work and effort, managed to get it open without my assistance…
And after dealing with all of the goodies, spent the rest of the time enjoying her new squeaky toy…
Sooooo, even though it is foggy and a bit gloomy outdoors, it is Christmas indoors and being enjoyed by all….. at home for Christmas where one should be and the atmosphere is filled with goodwill, cheer and happiness in spite of whatever the circumstances the world may be in outside!!… a quiet, peaceful moment with Bree and I being ourselves, the free spirit within, and not trying to be something we’re not, not creating a false image.. it is your life to live, no one else can live it for you and you will only get one try at it so it is best you do it your way… 🙂
That being said, will leave now and get on with the day on the path least traveled.. will leave a poem I wrote for the occasion.. And shall return one day, Fate be willin’ and the creeks don’t rise…
Christmas Is Coming, White Or Not…….
Tis rain and fog, not a snowflake in sight
Looks like Christmas in Hawaii, and this I fear,
With the weather forecast in hand
May not be a white Christmas this year!
The tree is trimmed, not as many lights this year
The presents are fewer, but tis the thought that counts,
Maybe not as plentiful, but food being prepared
As Christmas draws near and excitement mounts!
The spirit is in the air, the weather not to matter
And I am caught up in the spirit, I must confess,
So white or no, Merry Christmas to ALL!
And may all your presents be filled…. with love and happiness!!
