Christmas Eve

Marilyn and I are watching Christmas Eve mass at the Vatican right now on NBC. (We actually tried watching it earlier on the Catholic channel, but their programming was messed up so we couldn't, which is okay. Thankfully we get it now -- with lots of wonderful explanations!)

It would be hard not to love this current Pope, I think.

We had a nice day. I slept very late -- and Marilyn slept in, too. We get so tired when we have a busy day, like yesterday. We'd planned to try and go to see Shari this morning, but now we'll wait until after Christmas (after not getting there last night).

We spent a pretty quiet day, playing on our iPads and watching TV.

This evening Marilyn took me to dinner at our local Chinese place. We hadn't had anything but snacks all day, so we were really hungry. It was very busy there. Anyway, we had a lovely meal.

I took our neighbor Christmas gifts to June and Jim's house, and visited with June, Dodi and Bruce (Jim and Kelsey were at the store). Kyle didn't come along this year. (Oh! And Marilyn and I were happy to hear June and Jim had eaten dinner with JimJim last night!)

Doug brought our gift earlier from Janet and him. But I missed them when I went over. I also missed Chuck, John and Barbara and Rose and Ian. Maybe I'll try them tomorrow. I did see Estelle and Tom. And I didn't try Barbara. I suppose I should have started earlier, but it's okay...

Estelle had tried coming by for us last night -- around 6:30. I told her we were at work late, so that was ehy.

We watched a bunch of Yule Log today -- by the Hallmark channel. It had a cat bed by the fireplace, and a yellow cat, Happy! We just loved watching Happy. And so did our cat, Colin! He was fascinated by Happy and watched him for hours!

Off to watch more of the mass!!!!!

Merry Christmas!
