Me & My Muse – Day 1997: Christmas Aftermath

With Christmas being over, I will now share with you the Christmas that I experienced.

When I woke up, my brother was the only other person up.  I did my devotional and waited for everyone else to get up.

Eventually, my parents woke up.  After that, 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 we opened gifts, we had a ham egg quiche for breakfast.

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.

I know.  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.  Moving on with the recap, I got ready and I went over to my grandparents.  Me, my brother, my parents, my sister and her husband, my grandparents, my aunt and uncle, my cousin and his wife, and my other cousins all had dinner, white elephant, had dessert, and came home.  The dinner was prime rib, mashed potatoes, zucchini casserole, black and green olives and spinach salad with pepe, corn, craisins and feta cheese.  The desserts consisted of rhubarb pie, sweet potato pie, French silk pie, and lemon pie.  I took a piece of French silk pie and lemon pie.

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 so I can work and enjoy what’s left of my day.  With Christmas over, I’ll be working three more days. After that, I’ll get another five days off.  Today’s high is going to be 36 degrees and the silver lining is being able to enjoy this day later and being able to enjoy my Christmas gifts.

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


Muse: I may be a Dark Muse, but I’m going to stay in this fairy form a little longer. Besides, I get to be a Dark Fairy 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. Tee hee…
