Well, with no further ado, here are my last Christmas 2011 pictures This was our annual Bible Study Christmas gift exchange and potluck. These are some of our closest friends in the world. And before I'm asked, yes, this is at my house!
Some of the "spread" of food. What is it that is said about church potlucks? It's the best home cooking in the world! Roast with all the "fixins", chicken enchiladas, fried chicken, deviled eggs, two kinds of potatoes, homemade salsa. Yum.
Dennis went back to work today and life returns to it's own rythm. I'm really going to miss him being around all day. I counted the days and in the last 22 days he's only worked 6! We were in Hawaii for 8 days and then two 4 day weekends. I don't know when we've ever had this much time together and I've loved every minute of it. Of course, he did work on vacation and also from home several hours everyday. (Thank you ipad and cell phone!) but at least we were together. One night, we were walking on the beach trying to take in the sunset and his phone rang. He talked for almost 45 minutes to a man from Australia! He kept telling him that he wasn't in the office and didn't have the information he needed. He would call his office the next morning and have his secretary fax the information requested. The guy just didn't "get it". He kept talking, talking, talking. And...Dennis missed the sunset, but I thought it was beautiful! So....he never really gets away but he seems to be fine with that and I get to be with him so it's all okay.
Enough rambling. I'm off to my recliner and my knitting for awhile and hope I feel better soon! I hope you all have a wonderful day too.
