I just got back from my one week Christmas trip to my relatives in Oklahoma and Arkansas. It would be almost a thousand mile drive back and forth; I was very determined and excited. But I was thinking of the car wheels. The tires are fairly new, I just visually inspected them, and hoped they wont burst or ran flat on me while on the road. I have never drove this far out before nor being alone, and I was not familiar either of the way. But as of the brake rotors I had had no problems, thanks goodness. It was indeed a remarkable trip, the way may not be short, straight and smooth, but I got back home safe, and having had the best Christmas holiday.
The spirit of Christmas is so alive at home! My sister has finished creating and putting up the Christmas tree these past weeks. Oh how I miss home, and the joy of Philippine Christmas celebration with everyone, so spirited and free, I have never experienced somewhere else, so warm and happy, with loving families, loyal and true, through thick and thin! Perhaps I’m just missing home this season. I could not go home for I don’t have a passport yet, and no moolah:(
Merry Christmas and a happy New Year to all, from our family. May our lives be blessed and our territories be enlarged this New Year and beyond. Inner peace to all.
I chatted with my sister today and I am glad to know that my other sister in Dubai can go home after some issue with the airline ticket that the company is supposed to give her. I am glad all went fine with her and she can now travel. I am excited for them, for the reunion, I wish I am there! Just wishful thinking. We are not clear yet I would go home again for a vacation. It would be nice to spend Christmas with my family this time.
We are in the ‘ber’ months. It is starting to cool off, and before we know it, it is Christmas already. Time flies so past, huh? Last year I spent my Christmas with hubby in India. But I am not sure yet where I am going to spend my Christmas this year, here in the US or in the Philippines. It is because hubby’s schedule was recently changed. But wherever I will be, the spirit is the same. Two of my favorites about Christmas are the fellowship and food, especially the Christmas cookies. What’s yours? We surely are going to make Christmas cookies, with my sisters for all of our relatives, and us or with my mother-in-law. I have a recipe for Christmas cookies that I got from myrecipes.com. They have thousands of recipes, tips and how-to’s, and menus for all occasions that is why I go there to find easy to prepare and healthy recipes.
It is a challenging year that we are so thankful to see a merry christmas. Though my dad is spending his Christmas in the hospital, we are glad that we is getting well now. Anyway, here is what we got on Christmas day from hubby’s company’s catering services. So thoughtful of them. Here in the hotel they also put some socks on the door with candy and other sweets, isn’t that sweet? It is a great christmas here in India. Be well everyone.
