Lori did a great with hosting us for Christmas for a second year in a row. Dad's heart is not in putting up all of your decorations, which makes me sad, but I do understand. Lori has absorbed your Christmas traditions and styles, with her own flair, of course.
Turkey chili and cornbread and then pie.
And then many presents were opened. It was fun.
Here's some ends and odds of pictures in the folder from around the same time as we had to celebrate Christmas a week after Thanksgiving due to Dad's travel and my exams.
Eating the last of the Thanksgiving food. Is it okay to get gravy from a jar when you run out of the homemade stuff?
Appetizers: Mackarel in tomato sauce, chutney, and caviar with Triscuits.
Pie for breakfast all week after Thanksgiving.
Satchel tells me she is ready for her walk 1611.30.
Satchel is ready for bed after her walk 1611.30.
We're going off meat. But wait, I just bought this sausage. I have to eat it up.
Preparations for Thanksgiving. Much wine is consumed during the cooking prep.
Reflect and connect.
Have someone give you a kiss, and tell you that I love you.
I miss you so very much, Mom.
Talk to you tomorrow, Mom.

NOTE on time: When I post late, I had been posting at 7:10 a.m. because Google is on Pacific Time, and so this is really 10:10 EDT. However, it still shows up on the blog in Pacific time. So, I am going to start posting at 10:10 a.m. Pacific time, intending this to be 10:10 Eastern time. I know this only matters to me, and to you, Mom. But I am not going back and changing all the 7:10 a.m. times. But I will run this note for a while. Mom, you know that I am posting at 10:10 a.m. often because this is the time of your death.
