|A few weeks ago after we had been back in Nashville for about 4 weeks, we developed a case of hitch itch and were really ready to get back on the road again. Then as we waded through the rains and the record cold temperatures of December we were jealous of other fulltime RVers who had already arrived at their winter destinations and were enjoying balmy afternoons on the patio or wading in the Gulf. But today, as we gathered our family around us to share food and fellowship on this holiday, we wouldn’t have wanted to be anywhere else in the world.
Yesterday, I prepared the salads to go along with our ham and turkey sandwiches for tonight and I fixed a large crockpot of vegetable beef soup to take to mother’s on Christmas Eve. Part of the family gathered at my parents’ home for a very relaxed soup supper.
Today, Gene and I had a quiet morning to open our gifts from each other and have a small breakfast. This morning we had country ham and biscuits. Both the ham and the biscuits were special treats, since we only eat it about once a year. As the day progressed there was more food and more family until our tummies were full and the Montana was overflowing late this afternoon.
I’ll have to say, it was one of the best Christmas holidays we’ve had in a long time.
Tomorrow, we’re heading south—the beginning of our next adventure.
