Christmas Eve, Bright Lights and Ghosts of Grandma Past

Uh oh. I've just been informed that it's Christmas Eve. What the Manger? Everyone seems so busy. Was I supposed to be doing something?

There's a small tingle in my brain. It's there. I can almost feel it surfacing.

Oh, wait. WHAT IS THIS?

**ReformingGeek notices a piece of paper on the floor. It looks like some sort of list. The word "Gifts" is scribbled at the top.***

Huh. I wonder....

Oh well. I'm sure Hubby will let me know if I've missed something.

Anywhatsit, the talking weather torso on the TV is saying something about snow. No. It can't be. It was almost 80 degrees yesterday. I wore flip flops (with my yogi toe socks!) I went for a bike ride. The cat was hot and was throwing hair left and right with most of it landing on my keyboard. Sheesh!


Snow. Well,
Gosh Dern It! What time of the year does Mother Nature think it is? Christmas?

I guess I'd better find my parka and maybe a sled in order to get over the hill and through the woods to Grandma's house. Actually, it's Mom's house. There is no Grandma. She was abducted by the aliens in 1980. We occasionally have seances to try and reach her but nothing's worked so far.


**Sighing**


At least she wasn't run over by a
redneck hunter chasing a white-tailed deer on a local deer lease reindeer.

I hope everyone has a joyful, safe holiday.


**
Noticing bright lights in the sky**

I see the alien ship signaling. Maybe Grandma's up there. I'll check. Be right back.

Talking weather torso made my day -- and I went to Costco on christmas eve day, so this day has not exactly been all rainbows and bunnies.

Merry Christmas RG! I hope you don't go out in public in those socks and sandals. I didn't think Texans did that sort of thing.

Merry Christmas, Reforming Geek! If you're still here and not with grandma and the aliens, who are probably very interested in those sandals and socks you're wearing.

Collette said...

Merry Christmas to you 7 yours, Reffie! May the joy & peace of the season remain with you throughout the new year! (((HUGS)))
Don't feel bad. We had rain all day that melted our little bit of snow...lol. But, of course, the next few days we will have snow showers.

Just be happy that you don't have as much snow as other parts of the country!
