And We Didn’t Even Have Turkey!

Christmas was quiet and peaceful in our home.  OC and I each spent the whole day kicked back and casual.  He watched sports on TV, I read and played video games.

We had a simple Christmas meal for just the two of us.  I roasted a chicken, made mashed potatoes, gravy, stuffing, and steamed asparagus.   We ate, we talked, we laughed.  It was a mellow meal.  Afterward I cleaned the dishes and packed us each a lunch of leftovers for today.  Then I grabbed my book again.

About 35 minutes later OC woke me to tell me that the pie had cooled, and did I want a slice?  “Mmm-ff, mm-ff,” I mumbled.  “With ice cream.”  Right about then I think warm apple pie was the only thing that could have woken me!  What a lovely, restful day — and without tryptophan!


  1. Awwwwww… that’s great! I’ve been so busy relaxing I haven’t even had time to post yet! And I still don’t! But I wanted to stop by and say HI! I’ll post later tonight. Enjoy that book!

  2. There!!! I told you this morning, didn’t I? Enjoy your holiday, my friend!!
    Oh and um, I would be more than happy to cook for you two!!

  3. Sounds like a very fine way to spend Christmas. Glad you had such a good day. My internet was down most of Christmas Eve, all of Christmas Day and half of today. Frustrating but always with a good side. I finished up A THOUSAND SPLENDID SUNS. Great book. Highly recommended. Hot apple pie with ice cream sounds really good.

  4. Sounds like my day yesterday. 😉 Glad you had a restful Christmas day. We did have turkey for our meal on Christmas, but mainly because my mil loves is so. Someday we will have a “roast beast” dinner.
