On The Second Day


Of Christmas
My true love sent to me
Two whistling birds,
And.........



Yes it's Wordless Wednesday but it's Christmas and Boxing Day which we don't celebrate here in the U.S.A.....but we should.  It's probably not celebrated because this country was for the most part founded by a bunch of Puritans who were not big on frivolity!

For a wonderful explanation of Santa go Lisbeth's and scroll down to yesterday's post.  It's on Google too, but this way you also get to see some pretty photos too.

We had a lovely quiet day.  The weather was not great so we decided to cook the dinner inside instead of on the grill on the deck.  Roasting a bird when there is a foot of snow on the ground is one thing; doing it in cold mist is quite another.  It was delicious!

It's a bright sunny day.  We're off to the Post Office to pick up a few late arriving presents, and then some yard work before it starts snowing, sleeting, raining this evening.

Happy Boxing Day, one and all!

As always, thanks for stopping by...........*s*

  1. My mother lived in Canada for a while, they celebrated boxing day there to some degree, I wonder if they still do.
