It wasn't exactly warm on Christmas Day but at least it wasn't breezy or windy, and that made it still feel nice even in the dark of early evening when I employed the grill to prepare supper.

The day was not without its hitches, as I struggled to get everything to fit in the fridge, I managed to let my homemade creamer take a nasty tumble from the front shelf. No use crying over it!
