While Paul was working on assembling the Ninja Turtle Tower (with no less than six thousand pieces), I went in the kitchen to work on breakfast. Well, it was more like brunch by the time I had it on the table. I finally used my "new" waffle iron. Both Paul & I had inherited a waffle iron / pizzelle maker from our families....and eventually burned them out. I found this one (a 1970's model), same as the others, on ebay in practically new condition. And it didn't even cost any more than a crappy new Chinese one from Walmart.
After once again stuffing ourselves silly with waffles (because we weren't quite bloated enough from the rib eye's and kluski - polish potato dumplings - from the night before) I eventually managed to peel my pajamas off, put on jeans, boots & a sweater and we were off for a walk around the homestead.
In the beautiful, sunny, 54 degree weather. Yes. Sunny. And 54 degrees. On Christmas Day. It was awesome.
We found mushrooms (no idea what kind) and snail shells (weird, but we have them all over the place in the woods), deer tracks, turkey scratchings, deer rubs, some coyote poop, and some really big unidentified poop. Oh, and an old deer stand. Rhiannon had packed snacks consisting of pecans and apples and they were consumed while we rested on a large fallen log. It was a wonderful sunny day.

|Glass 1-Liter Pepsi bottle. I'm tempted to look up how old the|
bottle is and figure out when the last time that stand was used.
Hope you all had a great Christmas!
