Wordy Wednesday {Christmas Time 2013}

Dinner table all set -- so pretty.

(The stockings belong to my brother's family and were rehung after being raided.)

We had a very good time just relaxing, visiting and vegging out. There was much fun to be had playing Cribbage -- the one game I love playing most. We also played a game of Hand and Foot the night before we returned home. It had been eons since we played and I forgotten how intense the game can get. I do hope we get to play more often.

The bird, cooked by Dan, turned out pretty good. I must confess that I am wanting something different. Not sure how or what. We need to experiment with different recipes throughout the year. However, I am not sure if we will find the time or the inclination to do so with all the other projects we are working on. We tend to just take it easy with weekend meals because we are often so tired after working hard all day.

I have to mention that my sister-in-law and I went to the local factory outlet mall and I am so glad we made that trip because I scored three pair of new jeans for the price of two at $7.98 each. I needed new jeans desperately as my old jeans were either a tad too big or too messed up from working around the house (covered in stain, paint, etc., and etc.) I need to remember to NOT wear these new jeans while working on projects.

I hope everyone that celebrates Christmas (or Hanukkah or whatever you call it) had a very good holiday time! I know we did.
