Christmas Eve Doings

Posted on

Today became a day of picking up those small strings left undone during the week. We promised we would get up early to drive into Yuma to get things done but that didn’t happen since we both arose this morning at 9 a.m. This is something I don’t do in the mornings is sleep in late. But alas we did.

Our first stop in Yuma was the Cracker Barrel for brunch. My goodness, they were busy but every time we go there they are busy. But no waiting to get seated. My son David introduced us to Cracker Barrel and then friends Doris and Dick took us out to lunch. So now, we had gone to lunch and dinner there so we had to try breakfast. Dale ordered the special. The special consisted of two eggs, hashbrowns or hashbrown casserole. Meat for breakfast consisted of ham (your choice of sugar or regular), sausage, and bacon. He also got a dish of their apple dish, grits, biscuts and gravy and their apple-cinnamon roll. He was in hog heaven! After we ordered we (konk, should of had a V8 moment) thought we should have just shared this meal! All-in-all, it was a great breakfast that came quickly. Great service and very friendly.

Our next stop on our list was Home Depot. Dale thought maybe he could get a tripod for the internet dish. Ours was knocked down during the high winds we had and it broke one of the legs. We did find one and it was even in a price range that made both of us happy!

After the Depot, we ran across town to Michael’s to return a tube of paint I purchased the other day. It was the wrong yellow. I have these wonderful salt and pepper shakers. I will have to take a picture so you can see for yourself. During our many travels they have become chipped, so I want to fix the nicks so I can permanently put them up as decorations in the RV. After Michael’s we went next door to Tuesday Morning. A cute shop with lots of stuff that one might not find any where else. I did find something I wasn’t looking for. A really cool skein of Antuco cotton yarn in a variegated color of golds, tangerine, and turquoise . It is from Chile.  It’s wider than Peaches and Cream cotton year and bulkier. I can’t wait to knit something with it. Oh, it was on sale too for $4.00. What a bargain.

We went around the building to the laundromat. We saw one close so thought we would get our laundry done quickly. They had all front loaders for $2.00 a load so that was great. After chatting a little with the attendant, I motioned

for Dale to come on in with the dirty clothes. Once inside and ready to wash, she told us they were closed. It was 1 p.m. and the sign on the door said that they were closing at 3 p.m. We smiled a left wondering if who was the one being misunderstood! We went to the only other place we know and got our laundry done. While I was doing laundry, Dale went off to fill up both truck gas tanks. He found diesel for $2.55/gal.

With the laundry done, we bipped out 16th again to stop at Staples to see about a flash drive. Then to Harbour Freight for an electrical outlet strip. Then home. We were so glad to make it back home!

Tonight, we skipped church. Rats. I was not feeling well. I love the candlelight service and listening to all the music that glorifies our Lord Jesus Christ. This is truly and amazing time of the year when Christ is broadcast throughout the world.

We are off to see the luminaries up at Cripple Creek. Photo’s later!
