Today was my second meeting with the local Garden Club. She assures me that one day we will have a gardening based meeting AND I won the door prize AGAIN! I am beginning to feel guilty. haha

Mr. Menace stayed home sick today and several others were out for the holidays so I had the department by myself.

It rained HEAVILY this morning. After work we went to Toys R Us and the Galleria. It wasn’t too busy and we enjoyed our once a year shopping together time AND we bought ourselves a giant smart tv.
Thursday Dec 21
Last day of work for a while and when we got off at 5 we had Christmas with 3 of our granddaughters, Sadie, Phoebe and Dottie. Three precious girls.

Got up early and left Alabama for eastern North Carolina. Arrived at my brothers house around 6:30 pm and had Christmas with my nephews and niece.

Played around outside after breakfast and left for Mama’s around noon. Stopped for Cheddar Bo’s because you can’t get them any more in Alabama.
Sunday Dec 24 Christmas Eve
Spent the day at my sister’s with her youngest son and her grandkids. Played Googly Eyes, Bottle Flip, and Toilet Trouble. It was so FUN playing with kids again.
Monday Dec 25 Christmas
Mama had been wanting to work (and play) in her weaving shed, but when she went out there it was such a mess, she was disheartened and gave up. We spent several hours out there cleaning up, rearranging and decorating, which was even more fun than playing games with the kids yesterday! You can read about it HERE.

Mama had bought a bed online several months ago and I had planned to help her put it together LAST time I visited but never got around to it. Today was the day.

Had supper with my sister’s oldest son and his family. OMG what a feast! BBQ’d ribs, Pork Roast, Fried Oysters (FRESH!), Steamed Oysters (FRESH!). I should have taken a picture of the food…
Thursday Dec 28
Drove all day and got home around 7:30 pm. Mr. Menace and I opened our gifts from each other.

I love a one day work week. 🙂
Saturday Dec 30
Putting away suitcases, gifts, relaxed in hot tub, washed dishes, helped Mr. Menace hang new tv.
Sunday Dec 31 New Years Eve
One of our granddaughters, Sadie, was born on NYE, so we always have a birthday party to attend on that evening. Usually we go out dancing afterwards but this year we went to Logan’s Roadhouse for a steak and then home for a movie on our new tv which was a Christmas gift to ourselves.
And just like that, 2017 ends and we begin a whole new year of learning new things and living life!
