Christmas Eve Day

This morning I got up and took everyone out at 5 am, then put them all back to bed where I went myself until almost 9 am.  I am exhausted and can not seem to catch up with any rest.

I had been invited by the Chamber staff to join them for a little get together before they left for home today.  By 10 am I had to get going if I was to make it down there by 11 am.

With my trusty kitchen help I made up two dishes.  One to take along and the other for the freezer.

This Cheesy Salsa Dip always goes over well wherever I take it, and it is Rob's favourite.  I had some brought home for him which he had for his dinner.  The get together with the girls was a fun time as always.

This afternoon I think I could have slept the day away.  I was just about to lay down for a bit when the Repairman for the washing machine called to say  he was on his way.  He arrived, took 2 minutes to look at the washer, told me the bearings and more were probably gone in it and that I needed a new washer.  Two minutes and $50.00 later was rather disappointing, but business is business.

Boxing Day will find us shopping for a new washing machine.  He had told me to stay away from the new top loaders and stick with a Whirlpool front loader.  We will see.  Sears has one on sale right now for $750.00 which I will take a look at Friday.

I had called Sears to see what time they would be open Friday and their hours will be 6 am til 6 pm.  Needless to say I was quite surprised at their early opening time.  I will not be there that early.

I am still tired, I am not feeling the best, and I am hoping everyone else here will think an early bedtime will be a good idea this evening, Just North of Wiarton & South of the Checkerboard.


  1. Merry Christmas, Cindy. Hopefully the Aussies don't stir tonight, let alone a mouse!

  2. Merry Christmas to you all . Can you believe it is 12C windy and raining here even had a few claps of thunder !


How nice of you to drop around to have a wee visit with me to see what I have been up to from time to time. I look forward to your comments as they add much brightness to my each and every day to know there are such wonderful people out there.
