So that was Christmas...

It’s over.
The house is a mess.
I’m still in my robe.
I may stay in my robe all day. Now that is nice. . . the fact that I can. mm.
And while I do I’ll be smiling - thinking about the wonderful day yesterday. It was wonderful. Emotional, yes, without my dear dad who died Dec. 30 of last year. Thoughts of him, and memories filled the day, but that helped make it wonderful.
We had our traditional Carmack breakfast that Sam cooked. That was after the stockings were emptied and the gifts were opened.
Then the afternoon to enjoy the gifts and the down time. Then around 4:15 we started getting ready for Christmas dinner. W and L made the dressing (the one with fritos I made for Thanksgiving), and we put in the chicken, cooked the broccoli cheese dish, Grandmother brought her fruit salad - that makes us always think of Cap ---- and at 6-iish we ate it all. Yum.
Did I say YUM?

Hello! And merry after-christmas! I want to come see you at your tea room! Are you playing there this week?

My hometown...

I am thinking of my hometown now. Mission, Texas. And McAllen, Texas. And Mercedes, Texas, where I was born. And Donna, Texas, so near there...
