For Today . . . December 28, 2009 (last entry for this year!)
Outside my window . . . the weather has cooled off - it was -12 degrees C during the day today. After yesterday's fog, the trees were covered with fluffy, white hoarfrost. It was a winter white day - sky, trees, ground - everything was white!
I am thankful . . . so thankful for the gift of His son that God gave to us, as we remembered his birth over Christmas.
And I also am thankful . . . that Melinda, Tyler and Samuel are not traveling this Christmas, especially with all the security commotion and delays that have been happening the last few days.
I am praying . . . for my Dad as he had another bout with kidney stones and the pain is always excruciating for him.
I am thinking . . . about my word for 2010. Read Ali Edwards' post to learn more about choosing your own word.
I am creating . . . December Daily album layouts to record the things that happened through this month. I got a little behind so have some catching up to do now.
I am celebrating . . . Merry Christmas all this week!
From the kitchen . . . Turkey Barley Vegetable Soup, Biscuits, Eggnog Ice Cream and White Chocolate Cranberry Cookies.
I am wearing . . . black cords, black vest, red sweater, and my favourite Lisa Leonard necklace ( a gift from Heather last Christmas).
I am reading . . . Downtown Owl by Chuck Klosterman, the January book club selection. It's a story of smalltown North Dakota during an eight month period in the mid-80's and follows a high school football player, a brand new high school teacher and a retired widower. And I'm still sloughing through the last 150 pages of The Lizard Cage :(
I am hoping . . . to do some sewing, bake some cookies and entertain more this week.
I am hearing . . . the CTV news.
Around the house and yard . . . lots of snow outside and a lovely clean and tidy house inside :)
One of my favourite things . . . playing card and board games during the holidays.
A few plans for the rest of the week . . . swimming with the grandkids tomorrow, having friends over, finishing my December Daily album, sending some thank you cards and letters, and a New Year's Day celebration with my family.
Here is a picture thought I am sharing . . . a mosaic of some of the ornaments on our Christmas tree.
Thanks to Peggy at The Simple Woman for the original idea of these daybooks.
