Merry Christmas!

Yesterday in the fine sunny weather, I took Matthew to visit his Dad, John, at the nursing home.

 We all went out for lunch at the local Wendy's where I used coupons from the Sunday newspaper to pay for a good feed reasonably. John was in fine spirits and we all enjoyed ourselves.

Felix was left behind at home to work on finishing up all the end of the year dog reports to the town for our Animal Control Officers' work.

After supper, we went to our neighbors, Alfred & Ilse, to bring them with us to the 7pm Christmas Eve service at the Gilmanton Community Church. We filled a pew and I insisted on sitting up front where I can hear everything. We sang so many Christmas carols! The service is lit by 1820's style lanterns and decorated with poinsettias, so beautiful. I enjoyed it so much it filled my soul. Although I have not taken pictures from last night, this is the church by daylight, a couple of years ago when we had more snow.

It is a real architectural treasure of a colonial New England meeting house.
The date over the doors reads 1826.

I hope that all of you are enjoying your Christmas as much as I am!

Such beautiful architecture & perfect setting for a Christmas service. Where we are it is summer, although this year our Christmas Day was cool & wet.
My DH is another Mr. Wonderful, we also are best friends after 40+ years of marriage. WE have a 19yo Burmese feline , who thinks he is her best friend. :)
