Happy Christmas Eve





 A late post, I've had a busy day.

 I was finally able to cook for the shelter.  My ovens got a temporary fix to get me through Christmas.  I made 40 lbs of ham.

 I made cookie plates for all the neighbors.


 I made 200 rolls for the shelter to go with the ham.

I took them over 1000 cookies. I also bought sets of dominos, checkers, slinkys, paddle balls and yoyos and other assorted games and wrapped them so each of the guys at the shelter had a present to open.  They were so happy!  I got to be Santa for a bit today.

I'm glad that You at least have Your ovens temporarely fixed! I can imagine how fun it must have been for those guys to get a Christmas present :-) Who knows when they got one the last time.

I ate way to much food and candy yesterday :-) :-) So no breakfast today, just some tea :-)

I wish You and Your Family a Good Yule!
Christer.

That is not Santa for a bit! that is huge because of your generosity of spirit. It is not just the money but the amount of time and effort invested in the work.

A blessed Christmas to you and yours from sunny Sri Lanka.
