Back from Christmas Travels

Gentle Readers and Dear Friends I am back - actually I got back about 11:50 pm Sunday night  - and then I spent a day (Monday) being a big old lump and decompressing from my familial Christmas a la Florida.  I am now back to work and there are piles on piles of things to do......

I have also gone through my two main email accounts and have been dumping the hundreds of the odder emails - I am certain I am not ready for Viagra and I am not in the market for a lift on any part of my person so there goes about 200 of the emails right off the top!!! 

The Christmas Holiday was great fun - it was super to see my mom  -  or I should rephrase that...  deal with my sweet mama.  I loved seeing my sister and her family - although, with my BIL and both my nephew (13) and niece (12) taller than I - it does feel like I should pop on a munchkin hat/wig and start to sing....


......  but I refrain, and I just look up!!  We had some adventures, and the weather was perfect for most of the time... until it climbed above 80 degrees Christmas day.....  after a fun prezzie exchange  - we took off to the beach.

I have quite a few snaps (over 100) and will be showing a bunch of those over the next few days, so gird your loins for that thrill!!!!  I did miss writing everyday, even when I type out lots of drivel - I still enjoy the contact with my stitching friends, buddies and comrades!!!!

I do hope everyone had a super Christmas and a lovely Holiday!!  Do stop back by for more of my shenanigans tomorrow.

Take care,
edgar

Christmas in Florida almost always = air conditioning. This year was no exception. I generally have candles in the fireplace to give us the cozy feeling.

Things change when the young ones get bigger and stronger! :)

Welcome home Edgar! Glad you had a nice Christmas, and I look forward to seeing your photos. One thing I don't like about winter in the south is that it just isn't wintry enough on Christmas!

DonnaTN said...

Can't wait for all the Christmas vacation photos so I will consider myself girded. Glad you had a good time and got back safe and sound.

I can't imagine Chrismas on the beach, seems so alien to me being in the UK.
Welcome home!

Glad you had a great time! I know what you mean about singing that song. My hubby is 6'4, my son 6'1 and my stepson is almost 6'6 and the boys are only 18 and still growing. (and i am only 5'3). LOL

Welcome back, Edgar! I missed reading your posts every day too. I do know all about those stupid annoying emails. I have won millions of $'s apparently, even though I haven't even bought a ticket!!LOL
Then there are a lot of people who have a fatal illness and want to make me their beneficiary- as long as I can pay for them to get their money back from the Government- I don't think so!!!
Sadly some folk fall for these ploys.
Sounds like you had a lovely Christmas, we were lucky that the weather here wasn't too hot, as we have had some scorchers in the past. Looking forward to seeing some of those snaps. Bye for now, Sandy.
