A Merry Christmas to All
It’s Christmas once again and Di and I and the cats are enjoying a quiet day.
I have only one present under the tree — a bottle of some good whiskey (or whisky) from Di’s brother, David. I’ll open it before dinner and sample it then.
Di and I agreed that the new tub/shower, Heating (and especially AC unit) system and patio enclosure/sunroom constituted our birthday, Christmas and Anniversary (our 28th) presents to each other for this season.
Woke up this morning, fed the cats and then made coffee for myself. Woke up Di and made her tea. We both sat down to watch our morning shows and do our respective puzzles — she in her smoking/sunroom and I in the living room. Later, I fixed her salmon sandwiches and one for myself. (The cats were napping and didn’t notice.)
Around noon we fixed stuffing for the turkey and stuffed it. It should be ready between 5.30 and 6.00 pm. In addition we’ll have peas and roast potatoes. The cats will sup on salmon and turkey (cat food) — and, maybe, a couple of small pieces from our turkey.
Di is currently napping — with the cats sharing the bed.
To all of you — our relatives and friends (including friends we have not yet met) — Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays.
Joe, Diana, Smoke and Mist
