I am in the odd situation of celebrating Christmas with my Hindu family. They do not go to Church, but really decorate the home. I want to be clear that I have not converted from my original faith. However, in the interest of peace in the home I am participating fully. I think I will make another Turkey with some creamy mashed potatoes.
My step daughter is expecting a child soon. I am interested how the Sprite will react to a younger niece. She has had the focus of 100% of the attention and will have to be a big sister for the time being. The little Maltese should be fine as he spends all of his time with me anyway. He is very clever and gets his point across. He brings me the harness if he wants a walk. He licks my beverage if his bowl is empty. He never forgets to get his cut when I eat.
I haven't always lived well, but am now getting to see poverty up closer than I like. Things that I do normally like toss out leftovers are not done here. The dog in the back yard eats the leftovers and the little Maltese will grab any bone I leave on the plate. The daughter has figured out that the food I leave in the cupboard can be made quickly. Then again if she wants canned fruit be my guest a can of peaches and pears never hurt a kid. She does not eat the salmon or tuna in a can.
Someone poached the chicken in a can for some nefarious use. I tend to use it as emergency dog food.
I have given the Tranquil Sea a pair of Uggs. I told her to lock them at work as her coworkers will steal them. Mine are not much better, but someone keeps stealing my lunch at work. Why anyone would steal flat bread Chicken sandwiches with ranch dressing and pickles is beyond me?
I should be away from Wed night until Monday for the next two weeks. I will be calling some of you over the phone to wish you seasons greetings.
