I spent Christmas Eve worshiping at First Lutheran Church at their Candlelight Service.  It was a beautiful service with wonderful music and message.  Prior to the service we enjoyed an array of delightful cookies, cider and fellowship.  I got home by about 9:00 pm. ( It was strange driving at night, as I have been trying to stay off the roads after dark, especially in the country where I might encounter deer or other wildlife. )

                                           Christmas Dinner at Colleen's 2012

Christmas Day I had dinner at the home of fellow blogger, Colleen, of Traveling with Long Dogs.  Colleen lives in Schertz, near  San Antonio.  She has a delightful family, especially her two talented grandchildren, Cameron and Morgan.  Her son, Steve and his wife Helen, husband, Dave and RVing friend Margareta rounded out the remaining attendees.  We had a great dinner and later dessert.  Thank you for inviting me.  I had a wonderful time.  (Thanks for the picture, Colleen.)

Wednesday I didn’t have to work, in fact I never even went outside.  Angel did her thing just out the door ( I cleaned it up the next day ) and was just as happy staying inside keeping warm.


Thursday, we ( yes Angel too ) worked outside checking out the sights, making sure all the electricity was in the OFF position and that there was no water leaks.  I also picked up trash and downed branches littered all over from the last wind storm.

Today, Friday, I was ready to get out there and doctor any ant mounds, however Sheila didn’t think we needed to worry about them as it is so cold.  So tomorrow I will probably work all afternoon, because of the Chili Cook Off.

I haven’t been getting a lot of sleep lately, because my shoulder has been aggravating me, so I think that I will take a nap this afternoon.  Sandi and kids will be arriving late tonight, so I want to be awake when they get here.  We will celebrate Christmas on Saturday morning.  They will be here until New Year’s Day.  I’m looking forward to their visit.  I’m sure that we will have a great time.

My wish to you all is to have a safe and warm weekend.

Thanks for visiting

  1. Hi Susan,
    I enjoyed hearing about your Christmas eve and Christmas. Have fun with your relatives.

  2. Isn't it nice to find a great Lutheran church to spend Christmas worshiping? Great picture in the golf cart, I ride around in one too :)

  4. A wonderful Christmas with friends is something to be very thankful for. Glad you had a good one and now you get to do it all over again with the family.

  5. Nice Christmas pictures.... I always love seeing how everyone else celebrates. Texas sure is cold now, isn't it? (at least where we're at as well as you)
