Merry Christmas Eve: Peanuts collection

Snoopy plays for Woodstock

Snoopy plays for Woodstock

Greetings to all and to all a Merry Christmas. I am on shut down mode today. My family is not happy with me, but I have just spent three days in a row doing services, and frankly, I am fried up. Monday was spent putting all the bulletins together choosing songs and contacting the pianist. Tuesday was the mobile food pantry in town which I always help with as a clergy from the area, and it was the day Paulina came home. She got to town just in time to help us move some of the heavy stuff.

Wednesday I was in charge of the service at the Nursing home then back home to write the message for the funeral on Thursday, which turned into an all day event, and then of course yesterday we did a joint Christmas Eve/Christmas Day service a bit early to get ahead of the storm. It has been a full week and it all turned out fine, but today I am fried up mentally and worst of all this storm has my joints going crazy. My Achilles on the once broken leg is swollen and throbbing and my knee on the other leg is out of whack and I can’t see very well and it is almost worse with my glasses. I must just be falling apart. I know this sounds like lots of complaining, it really isn’t that I feel so horrible, it is just how it is today. I am ready for a rest, and I think if I take today to lounge around a bit, tomorrow I will be ready to pop a turkey in the oven, peel up some potatoes and maybe even make a pumpkin pie.

In the meantime, I will share with you a few of the Peanuts gang figurines and displays that are setting around my house. The first two play songs from some of the specials and I really can’t resist pushing those buttons each time I am near them. Such a delight. There is a fairly new antique shop in Eureka that has Peanuts memorabilia for sale. I will have to check what is new in there on Wednesday when I am in town. In the meantime hope you are all having a wonderful, blessed, family filled Christmas Eve. “And that’s what Christmas is all about, Charlie Brown.”
