Christmas Day was very pleasant here. We had a sleep-in, then opened presents over cups of coffee. My son came by in the afternoon for a Christmas brunch. We had a Swedish pancake, baked eggs, bacon and ham, oven fried potatoes, and pumpkin-cranberry bread. Quiet.
I called my daughter--where it was not so quiet. They had just finished with their presents and the kids were very happy and excited to play with new toys.
Now...The tree is down and all the decorations are put away. The furniture is all back into normal position. There are still way too many cookies and candies about, but the freezer and fridge are down to just enough for today and tomorrow. Most of the packing is done, a lot of stuff already in the car. We will be leaving for North Augusta, South Carolina on Monday and then on to Venice, Florida for New Year's Day.
So it's time to wish everyone a safe and HAPPY NEW YEAR.
