Merry Christmas to All

 

I want to wish all out there in blogland a very Merry Christmas and hope that you all have a safe and Blessed New Year.  I hope that I will be out there on the road this coming year, experiencing this great land of ours and visiting friends and family where ever they may be. 

Where has this year gone?  Here it is Christmas Already.  It is still just Angel and me, although Ted will be here for the weekend.  He will  finish work  in San Francisco and be here in a couple of hours.  Hopefully he will have good traffic on his way here.

Earlier today I went to the eye doctors to pick up my new computer glasses.  I paid only $20.00 for them.  Fortunately the rest was covered by my insurance.

The only other thing that I did today was to do some last minute grocery shopping.  I make my own trail mix including what I want instead of the stuff that I don't care for.  I usually keep some in my purse as a snack rather than stopping for fast food.  I consists of seeds, mixed nuts, different dried fruits and some really dark semi sweet chocolate chips.  I also take some to work.  there's enough of a variety that I can mix and match the different flavors, (just a couple of pieces goes a long way).  This time I cut back on the dried fruit ( high in sugar) and added more seeds ( less calories).

This evening we will be going to a candlelight service at Church. There are two services, seven and ten.  I will be singing in the choir at the one at ten.  We may go out for dinner between services.  Tomorrow we will go over to Steve and Kyle's for Christmas and exchange gifts there.

Ted made it safely home and had enough time to help me get access to the web camera before we left for church. 

This year at the 7:00 (family service) we had a “Birthday Party”.  All the children were given a “Treasure” chest. As Pastor related the Christmas Story, each child was given an item to put in their chest as a reminder of each part of the story, a feather for the angel Gabriel, a block of wood for Joseph, straw for the manger, wool for the shepherds and bit of myrrh oil for the three wise men.  It was a nice change from the traditional acting out of the story by the children.

We did go out between services for dinner and had a wonderful meal.  We all ordered some thing different and shared.  It would have been better if we could have spent more time, but Pastor Steve and I had to be back to church.  I also had to pick up Samantha and Gilbert. My favorite is the traditional Liturgical Communion Candlelight Service with all the carols.   Even after I am in an RV I will continue to celebrate the birth of our Lord with family and friends either here or where ever they are.

I got home before midnight, so Angel and I made it to bed so that Santa could make his delivery.  We haven’t opened presents yet, they are all packed up and ready to take to Steve and Kyle’s where we will have breakfast and open them.   I will close for now and post this.   I’m getting hungry,  Bye for now.  MERRY CHRISTMAS  to all.
