Reconnecting on Christmas Eve

Location: Adairsville, GA (High 39, Low 26)



Yesterday was a really nice day, (well other than it was COLD). I think I am finally starting to feel like things are getting back to normal. We went to a grocery store down the street from the campground and bought some real food…salad fixings…breakfast fixings…fresh veggies, and my favorite – pot roast!





Then we came home and I started a nice Christmas Eve meal cooking in the crock pot. It smelled so great.

Here is Harry ready to enjoy our first home cooked meal in quite a while.


We also had a nice Skype conversation with my mom and stepdad. We got caught up on news and shared Christmas well wishes. My mom made me feel better about our weather when she told me it was a balmy 17 degrees there.


Later in the afternoon we headed out to find Harry’s cousin’s house for a Christmas Eve get-together. A few weeks ago, Harry had contacted his cousins to let them know he would be in the area, and they invited us over for a little gathering they have. Harry was excited to see his cousins again, as the last time he saw them was about forty years ago.




We had a tour of their house, which was beautifully decorated for the holiday. It was a lovely evening, and we made plans to get together at least one more time while we’re here.


It was a very nice Christmas Eve day. :)


Merriest Christmas wishes to everyone! Hope you all have a wonderful day of celebration, wherever you may be. :)
