Me & My Muse – Day 172: Christmas Aftermath

Having no snow to shovel today, I will now share with you the Christmas that I experienced.

When I woke up, no one was up yet.  To kill time, I played some Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of time.  After this, I watched a YouTube video with my brother.

With a phone call waking my parents up, we were able to start early.  The phone call was from the plant.  There was an emergency, so fortunately they were able to resolve it, so dad didn’t have to come in.

After having Eggs Benedict Casserole for breakfast, we started opening the gifts.  This is what it looked like before.

Muse:  Wow!  That’s a lot of gifts!

I know.  This is what it looked like after we opened them.

Muse:  That reminds me of the gifts that I opened couple days ago.  The tree looked just like that when we were done.

It always does.  But it was fun while it lasted.  After that, I took inventory of my gifts.  For those of you who are wondering, this is what I got for Christmas.

Muse:  That’s a lot of gifts!  For me, I got mostly books this year.  You will be reading that First Phone Call From Heaven book, won’t you?

I will.  I’m guessing that you had a good Christmas.

Muse:  I did.  All the Intangibles came over to my house and we celebrated Christmas there.  Besides books, I got some jewelry, some lipstick and a couple of electronics.

That’s a lot of good gifts.  As for the gifts above, I got more when I went to my grandparents.  Moving on with the recap, I got ready and I went over to my grandparents.  We opened gifts, had dinner, had dessert and came home.  The dinner was prime rib, brussel sprouts, mashed potatoes, broccoli casserole, beets and a jello mold.  The desserts consisted of a peppermint roll, a peppermint chocolate roll, an apricot roll, a pumpkin roll, some Christmas cookies, some Mexican wedding cake cookies and some other desserts.  I just took a peppermint roll, a peppermint chocolate roll, a pumpkin roll with nuts and a couple of those rolled up pastries with glazed frosting.

Muse:  That’s quite a spread!  The food that we had was a little different, since not everyone there liked Tangible food.

Well, that’s the gist of it.  Having shared that with you, I now need to get ready.

Muse:  I need to ready myself.  See you later!

I really need to get going.  Today’s high is going to be 32 degrees and the silver lining is getting paid today.

To those of you who are enjoying your new gifts, I hope that you all have a fantastic day.


Muse:  I got a lot of gifts this year!  And with all those new books, I’m going to have a lot of reading to do….
