Merry Christmas Eve

We had Christmas breakfast with Jilda's brother next door. We were walking out the door with dishtowels on our hands carrying a pan of hot biscuits. Just as I leaned over to turn the light off with my elbow, the lights went out. All the lights. 

When I leaned my head out the door, there was not a cloud in the sky. There was no wind. Nothing that could have knocked out our power, but yet there were no lights.

We hauled food and Christmas presents over for all our nieces and nephews and their kids. 

Thankfully their house was warm, and there was enough morning light filtering through the east-facing windows to light up the festivities. About an hour later, the lights came back on.

After breakfast and the gift swapping, we headed home. 

Jilda always does Christmas cookies with the kids. I will let her tell about that on her blog when she posts.

Tonight, Jilda is making Christmas fettuccine. We have white wine on ice, and we'll toast to Santa and safe travels.


  1. Merry Christmas to both of you.

  2. Boy of boy, how good it feels to have the electric back on. Odd no weather to knock it out.

  3. Our Christmas Day is here. I hope that yours when it arrives is wondrous.

  4. Christmas fettuccine sound good. Should pair well with some Christmas white wine.

  5. We also had Chicken Fettuccine with sun-dried tomatoes for our pre-Christmas dinner in November when all the family were able to be together. It was so yummy. I Fettuccine and wine goes well together.
    I'm glad you got back your electricity. Hopefully Christmas Day will go without a glitch.
    Merry Christmas, Hppy Birthday Jesus.
    Hugs, Juia
