|Christmas Day at the dinner table|
We don't really celebrate Boxing Day in the United States, but I seem to be seeing the name being used more and more here. These are mostly Boxing Day sales, but I have heard the term used on several radio stations today.
The Serene Princess and I had a day out together, having lunch together and doing a little bit of Christmas... err, Boxing Day shopping. I picked up some Woodlands Scenics trees at Michael's Stores while Lelia purchased some art supplies to donate to the daycare center where she does volunteer work.
Christmas Day was a big success; we had 15 guests for dinner. They were mostly family, but we also invited some friends who didn't have anywhere to go to for the holiday celebration. I didn't get any wargame related presents (do I really need anything when I have a basement full of inventory?), but I did get some interesting history books.
|Post Christmas debris after all of the packages were opened. Don't worry, we cleaned up everything.|
First and foremost is "Vicksburg. Grant's Campaign That Broke The Confederacy " by Donald Miller. I tucked into the book last evening and expect to finish it off in a couple of days. After that I will read David McCullogh's "The Pioneers."
Today the post man delivered a box with some resin Sand Warms from Acheson Designs, a gift that I bought for myself. Hmmm, what can I do,with these?
