Rest and Relaxation





Well, Our Christmas was great, we are getting rid of the Turkey with a lunch at church after services sunday with Turkey Salad Sandwiches, chips and pickles at coffee hour. Things are calming down so it was finally time for some R and R!
We went to our friends, got out the New York State Sharp Cheddar Cheeze, Croghan Bologna, Chips, Crackers, soda and played Cards *(euchre) all afternoon till dinner. My partner and I beat my honey and her partner 5 games to 1, *(HOOORAY) We talked, laughed, argued a little politics, discussed family, kids, grand kids, growing old, taxes, and what next year will be like.
Dinner was tossed salad, home made stuffed shells with beef or sausage and desert was Bluebery or Apple Pie!!!! Right now I am relaxed, talked out, and all larded up and ready for the recliner!!!!

It is cold out, 30, and a *(Freezing Rain watch) posted until tomorrow!

Never forget those that cannot be home!!!

Thanks for the advice about the moth balls or flakes. Lantana is a native bush here that doesn't take much water. The flowers are orange although there are some other colors. Mostly grow in the fence lines at the ranch. I dug some up and planted them all in front of my house. They are pretty until the cold weather comes then they are ugly but come back year after year.

I don't think it's possible to have too much turkey. Have a great weekend!

I just looked across the table, and Sherry is reading your Blog at the same time I am. She turns up the music, I seldom turnon my speakers cause I can't hear anyway. Sounds like so much fun, especially after all the other food.
Snacking and talking. /Good R&R
