If We Were Having Coffee….12/24/16

imageIf we were having coffee…I would welcome you to the “calm before the storm.” It is a rainy Christmas Eve morning here in southern New Jersey. The rest of the family is still asnooze, as I sit with my cup of piping hot French roast, contemplating today’s “to-do” list.

Tonight we will visit with my husband’s father’s family, catching up with cousins we see only once a year, and tomorrow our immediate families will gather here for Christmas dinner. We usually toggle between 14 and 25 guest. This year we are 22, missing a niece and her group who are promised to his family this year, and a nephew whose new job is keeping him on the west coast. No matter what the group, though, it is always noisey and chaotic and totally wonderful!

So, if we were having coffee today…I would wish you all your own special brand of holiday crazy wherever you are,  no matter what you celebrate this time of year. Please stop by for coffee next weekend when peace and quiet will once again be the norm around here. We can have a proper chat then. For now I need to run. so much to do! For now, I hope all is well with you and yours. Don’t forget to visit Diana at Part Time Monster for the rest of the Coffee Share Posts.

  1. Thank you. I hope you had a nice day too.

  2. How wonderful to have so many people over! There was just seven of us and even that required a lot of food 😀 Happy Boxing Day!

  3. 22! That’s quite the party! 🙂 We only had 13 this year. Four are experiencing a North American Christmas, one a European one and seven came today instead. And there’s the forever empty places.

    Hope you got everything done and had a ripper of a time!

  4. Sounds like you’ve had a wonderful day — and I have, too! Happy Holidays to you and yours 🙂

  5. Enjoy your family and the day.
