Our power was out for a bit this morning, I had to light a match and use the gas stove to warm water in the kettle for coffee, instead of just turning on the electric kettle. Our water is well water, so no power, no water, but thankfully we had some in the Brita pitchers! Because, coffee!
I said this morning, oh no, I can't do dishes or vacuum or anything! I guess I'll just have to sit in my chair and enjoy my coffee!
But alas, it's back on....and we're having a houseful tonight, so I have quite enough to do! Let's see:
Emily, Abigail, not sure about Mariel, she's working so many hours these days...Benjamin and Ashley, Anya and Elise, Joseph and Bethany, Molly and Josh with Lydia and Ophelia, Margaret and Adrian and Wulf and Tennyson, Sonja, Jonathan, Charlotte Claire, Camille, Paul, and me. So not that many, ha.
We are having our appetizer/air fryer buffet tonight: bbq meatballs, spring rolls, pizza pockets, mozzarella sticks, chips and veggies with dip, butter chicken...
Tomorrow, it's the same cast of characters, adding in Suzanne and Zech, and subtracting Joe and Beth, and Molly and Josh and girls, at Benjamin's house. We'll be having our meat feast, with Mac and cheese. And, now I'll tell you Paul's gift, since I don't think he reads this anyway...and if he finds out now from this, oh well, right?
It's a smoker! An electric smoker, to prepare all the venison he gets.
I know, it's no boat or four wheeler, but I think he'll like it.
Six years ago, my youngest, Camille Anaya, and oldest Emily Anne...time flies. It sure does. I want today to go by so slowly....mostly because I have a boatload to do, ha. Jonathan has a new-to-him four wheeler, with a plow, so he's having fun with the snow we got, cleaning the driveway.
Have a Merry Christmas, and enjoy the moments...
