Happy Boxing Day
We made it to the day after Christmas, Boxing Day for our friends and family in the ancestral homeland. The small talk question of the day, is what did you get for Christmas? My big item, is a folding wagon. It will fold up and fit in the car, unfolded it will tote large and heavy items in and out of the condo. Living in a high rise, a folding cart or two really comes in handy. I also received a wonderful pear and chocolate chip Panatone, for those that are not familiar with a Panatone, it is an Italian holiday cake with fruit baked in it. They are light and airy and full of flavor. There was also a nice scented soap - the routine things in life should not be boring and I like nice soaps. And three new ornaments to add to the collection, a sheep, a panda and a bunny. I also received a wonderful Hawaiian print shirt from a friend in Honolulu. And a check from my father.
With Boxing Day being on a Saturday, I hope many of you are able to enjoy the second day of the holiday.
