Simple Daybook #22

For Today . . . December 29, 2008 - The last entry of the year!

Outside My Window . . . a snowy winter's day - temperature of -10 degrees Celsius and no sunshine

I am thinking . . . that Christmas was a wonderful celebration, even if we felt swamped yesterday

I am thankful that . . . all of our kids came home for Christmas and we had a whole day together to enjoy each other.

From the kitchen  . . .  scrambled eggs with veggies and lots of leftovers

I am wearing . . . jeans, a snowman sweatshirt, striped blue socks and slippers

I am reading . . . the last chapter of Three Cups of Tea

I am hoping . . . that Melinda is feeling much better tomorrow.  She battled the flu overnight and has to fly home to New York City at 8 in the morning.  She looked at rescheduling but there are no flights available until Jan. 6.

I am hearing . . . the 11 o'clock news on TV - it's taken a long time to do this entry today, what with internet outages!

I am creating . . . the last pages in my December Daily album - I have lots of catching up to do!

Around the house . . . a big mess!!  Gifts to put away, toys to get back in the toybox and some laundry to do.

One of my favourite things . . . . watching everyone open their Christmas stockings!

A few plans for the rest of the week. . .   taking Mel to the airport, creating, afternoon naps and game nights with some friends.

Here is a picture thought I am sharing with you - Mel and Tyler opening their stockings.  Can you see her baby bump?!

Pop over to The Simple Woman and join in on the fun!


  1. The bump looks lovely, Grandma.

  2. Sounds like you have been busy! Alyssa is flying to NY today from Clgry. She is meeting up with her cousins from SK. They are going to ring in the New Year in NY!

  3. She look so good! I hope she's feeling better today. I've been thinking about her all day.
    Love your list - what a whirlwind week, hey?

  4. You had a very busy week, and I'm so glad we were part of it, except for the being sick part. Now it's time for a good night's sleep. We miss you lots already!
