My sister and brother-in-law who have two daughters in Victoria, British Columbia have flown out for a West Coast Christmas.
My sister here in the city is having dinner with friends who are helping her do some fix-ups on her house.
My sister and her family in Alabama will be celebrating together.
Paul's sister who lives in Toronto will be joining us along with Stephen and Chawana for Christmas dinner.
I haven't decorated as much as in previous years but what I have out pleases me and looks very festive.
Once again I have ordered fresh turkey parts, breast and thighs, and will serve them with Uncle Ben's dressing (he saves me so much work and it tastes so good) and cranberry jelly that I will make myself having discovered just how easy it is. Mashes potatoes and roasted vegetables (hopefully parsnips and carrots depending on how they look at the store tomorrow). We have some nice Canadian riesling to serve and will finish the meal with Christmas ice cream and Scottish shortbread.
The gifts are wrapped and in the stockings.
A little of a tidy up left to do and yes.............I am ready.
I wish you a Merry Christmas and a wonderful New Year.
