I bet everybody is out at the mall, returning gifts or buying on-sale items. I almost missed my blog day because the day after Christmas always feels like another holiday…forgot there is “business” to attend to!
I received great gifts. Two pairs of boots, two scarves, a nightshirt, a desk calendar, some beautiful Christmas decorations, a tabletop propane heater… Lots of good stuff!
More gratifying, Son1, Son2, and Surfer Guy seemed to love their gifts, especially the small remote control helicopters that they’ve been buzzing my head with since opening. Our neighbors’ almost-two-year-old granddaughter came by last night and she was awed and amazed when the boys flew them for her. It was possibly the best part of Christmas to see how excited she was and how cute she looked in her Christmas finery, clutching her Disney Princess book.
I spent a lot of the day reading an advanced copy of a new Stephanie Tyler book and then instructing Surfer Guy on how to prepare our pasta dinner (this broken leg thing has its advantages!). We were going to watch part of Season 1 of “Justified” (a Christmas gift from me to him) but we never got around to it. Who cares! It was a great lazy day.
But you know what Christmas being over means…New Year’s! We don’t have any plans as yet and I’d just as soon keep it that way this time. I’ll probably be curled up with another good book…and just a reminder that you can read my New Year’s story if you’re in the mood for romance…(and who isn’t?).

Hope you’re hdving a wonderful holiday season so far…and feel free to share your favorite moment or present!
