Christmas Blues

The day after Christmas always seems so melancholy.  All the excitement leading up to the special day and then it's over for another year.  We had a really nice Christmas this year.  Chris got me an Ipad and I got him a new Canon camera.  I got a bunch of really great books from my in-laws and today I discarded a book I've been trying to read for weeks now in order to begin one called "Cleo, The Cat Who Mended a Family" -- on the front cover is a picture of the most darling little black cat with green, green eyes.  I received another cat one about a cat who was born without eyes.  And two dog stories too! LOVE.THOSE!  So I decided I was not going to force myself to get through a story that didn't hold my interest when I have so many others that do.  I really hate giving up on a book though.  I also got a "Scrabble Flash" game that Carole and I played yesterday when the guys were watching the Cowboys play.  It was great fun.  And then I downloaded scrabble on my Ipad and won my first game against the computer.  I wasn't really convinced I would use an Ipad but I've been using Chris' to read when I'm on the treadmill and I have become convinced of it's many wonders.  Either that or I'm brainwashed from hearing Chris extol their virtues for the last year.  Our friends, Ralph & Carole and their daughter Jessica came over to share Christmas dinner yesterday  -- we had a feast of ham, cheesy potatoes, green bean casserole and fruit salad with chocolate cream and apple pie.  No one went hungry that is for sure.  I really love having a fridge full of leftovers.  It was snowing slightly outside and looked very Christmasy.  Good friends, good food and a relaxing day, it doesn't get any better than that!
