How about the day after, the day after? We had a very nice Christmas, just wonderful in so many ways. The being together, the way we simplified our gift giving, visiting with friends -- the day before Christmas Eve, Dan and I went together to deliver some treats to various friends, and ended up staying at one of their houses to watch part of a football game. Just a really nice, relaxing time, the way the holidays were meant to be.
Today, I'm tidying up the house. I put away all the wrapping paper and supplies, which covered the dining room table. It was Gift Wrap Central and was still being used late on Christmas Eve. I put away all of the baking supplies and combined a few treat baskets. Some of the delicious loaves and coffee cakes we received went in the freezer. They'll be yummy treats for tea time this winter. Finally, I cleaned out the fridge and the freezer, finding enough food to plan a month's worth of menus.
We had one major mishap a couple of days before Christmas, when George got into a fight with a wire fence in the backyard. George lost. He is having surgery #2 as I type this, to repair his leg. Greyhounds are extremely sweet dogs. . . and notoriously big babies. After his first surgery as he was leaving the clinic, the vet gently admonished him to "Be tough, George." He has been a very good sport and even looked quite festive for Christmas day.
Hope your Yuletide was quite festive as well!
