Things begin to pull together for the Christmas season on Friday. I’ve been invited to sub for the leader of our exercise class on Friday. She will be preparing her home for the class for our annual Christmas brunch. We’ll exercise and then head directly to her home for a fabulous repast and conversation.
Saturday, I hope to get some baking done. Sunday is the family party for my side of the family. Either Saturday or Monday afternoon I’ll be caroling with some of the women from my exercise class. There are six people we hope to visit, to bring a little cheer.
Christmas Eve I hope we’ll go to the 8:00 service at church and then on Christmas Day we will load all the presents I’ve been wrapping (in green paper with gold ribbons, Cop Car), and head north to spend the day with Dear Husband’s children and our grandchildren.
After Christmas, I hope to spend a couple of days with family teaching some of them how to make sugar crisp, the traditional family cookie. It’s time to be sure that SOMEONE will carry on the recipe.
I’m looking forward to all of it. This the season of joy!
