Paul reminded me that today is Boxing Day, a celebration that originated in the United Kingdom and is celebrated in a number of countries that previously formed part of the British Empire.
Jim and I celebrated a quiet, peaceful Christmas day. Used my working oven to fix a turkey and we watched holiday movies. We did, however, have a couple of glitches in our peaceful day.
We ran out of propane and as per usual it was in the middle of the night on Christmas Eve. Sure glad we had full tanks on the Bungalow so Jim could just exchange those because I’m not sure anything would have been open on Christmas day especially that early in the morning.
The other issue was more serious. Jim discovered a leak in our bathroom. Not sure if it was from the shower or the toilet, so he had to take things apart on Christmas day. He’s pretty sure it was a pipe to the toilet and got it repaired and put back together. He’ll keep a watch on it and we have our fingers crossed.
I want to post my Christmas decorations so I will have them to remember in later years.
This is our fishing Santa. The Hershey’s Christmas tree was made by Aunt Happy in her crafts class. The bottle next to Santa is full of candy to help us celebrate New Year’s Eve.
Jim decorates the outside with lots of lights.
Spike is all dressed up for Christmas.
Our Christmas Dachshunds.
The newest addition to our Dachshund family. Thanks to Todd and Michaela.
Our Christmas tree (there is a ledge behind the couch for it to sit on)
The Nativity Set my mother made for me some 35 years ago.
I hope all of you had a truly wonderful Christmas at your homes filled with love, friends, family and good food.
