Heading Home for Christmas
Is everybody ready for the big day? I can't believe how quick this year went! The Mistress had off today and finished her last minute stock stuffer gifts and then just walked about Doylestown looking at all the Christmas finery about the town. And it seemed everywhere I went people couldn't have been more friendly saying" Merry Christmas", and" Happy Holidays"! It was very nice to hear. Could people be in the spirit this year, or is everybody just drinking more??? The Mistress is enjoying being wrapped up early and relaxing. I didn't have but five gifts to get, and it was mostly work related and some close friends. We don't really exchange with family anymore, except for the young ones. We really enjoy good company and laughs, spirits and FOOD! My checklist for the packing is done, as the Mistress will be heading to Harrisburg to the ancestral home for a lovely Christmas Eve dinner, and then to the Aunt and Uncles house for the big day, with most of her kids. We'll enjoy some cosmopolitans, which is tradition and then her Roast Beef dinner with Yorkshire pudding! Yum. And on Christmas Eve, since I was a wee one, I have always watched A Christmas Carol. I 'll have to uphold that along with some cookies and a nice Spiked Eggnog! Do you all have any traditions you look forward too? Well time to hit the road. I'll be back next week sometime. In the meantime have a very Merry Christmas and a Happy Ole New Year!!!
