Wondering about wild grapes

It was a good day.

Although we don't have a Christmas tree, or wreathes, or gifts, or garland, we did have a great Christmas.  My son called to make sure we were at home and said he would like to come up and see us.  My wife and I went outside to meet him since it was such a beautiful day which started out in the upper 70's but was quite windy.  We decided to sit in the RV and talk.  Then his girl friend showed up with her little miniature Chihuahua.  It is just so cute and full of so much energy.  It runs every where it goes unless it is carried.  I brought out our youngest dog, Gizzy, and she just didn't know what to make of that little ball of energy.

They were heading for the south part of Houston to see her Mother, so went to get ready and head south.  Her brother, who is staying with them, walked up and we started talking.  He said that he would like to see the inside of the RV, so the three of us went back in the RV and we visited with him until my son and his girl friend drove up to pick him up.  That made for a good day, even though the temperatures were dropping all day long.  The warmest part of the day was the early morning.  Now, isn't that a little backwards?  By evening it was down in the 30's but even by this morning, it hadn't got down to freezing like the TV weatherman predicted.

I hope all of you had a safe and very enjoyable Christmas, too.  Now, even though it is the day after, try to have a really great day, you hear?


  1. Glad you had a great Christmas.

    It it will make you feel any warmer, it was -1 this morning here in the Great North Woods.

  2. Was a great day til that wind hit,,then it got icier all day. Wind was BAD.
    Glad yall had a good day. We sure did.

  3. For me, being Maori Christmas is a celebration of whanau (family) and it transcends respectfully the christian meaning of the day.I love my family around most times but never more than on Christmas Day.Somehow the weather doesn't seem to matter when you're all together.Loved your write.

  4. Sixbears, down here our thermoters only have positive numbers.

    Trouble, my son said he saw a couple trees come down on the back of my place.

    WandaKR, family is very important and should be celebrated.

  5. Christmas wasn't all that cold here, but it rained ALL day long. I'm sick of rain, and you will probably get tired of cold before long.

  6. The day after Christmas brought us 7 inches of snow! I wasn't sure we were going to have winter this year.
    NO MORE MUD!!! Thanks to my two large dogs my house smells like mud. I guess I have to get the wood stove good and hot then shampoo the carpets again. my husband got his work truck..not a 4x4..stuck in the driveway so he took my Yukon...no car so I guess I have time to clean.

  7. The days between Christmas and New Years at my home were a wild whirlwind of family, food, and fun. Time to slow down a bit now. Several guests will still be here till Jan. 4, then I will get a break. I'm so blessed, though, that the kids and their families still want to come home at holidays.
