Outside my window...It's cold, grey, covered in snow and has that chilly frosty hue. It had a little blizzard last night that first gave us a bit of freezing rain and then snow so it's also slippery out there. No kids running around the schoolyard today! In fact there is hardly a car going by.
I am hearing...the news on tv saying that a 71 one year old woman in India has just given birth to her first child. Oy.
I am thinking...of all the things I still have to do for decorating. It was supposed to be done on the weekend but plans went awry when we didn't get home on time because we had to creep home from visiting friends out of town and the blizzard hit. I'm telling ya, driving home with next to no visibility, with snow whipping past the window and the highway getting covered is not something I'm particularly wanting to do again anytime soon. It hit us totally by surprise. When I had checked the weather report yesterday morning it said light flurries for late Sunday. Wrong.
I am thankful for...getting home safe and sound. Thank you Lord!
I am wearing...black jeans, a red sweater, grey and red socks
I am hoping...to finish the decorating today. Finally.
From the dayhome...Continueing with the letter "C", Christmas tree craft, pine tree bough painting
From the kitchen...supper wise I haven't a clue, shortbread cookies, Christmas ufo's
I am reading...recipes. Lots of recipes.
I am creating...lists upon lists
Around the house...are way too many boxes of Christmas decorations yet to be put out.One of my favorite things...eggnog in my coffee. A Christmasy way to start the day.
A few plans for the rest of the week..finish the decorating today, put away all the boxes, baking, shopping. I want to have everything done before the week of Christmas so that I can relax that last week and really enjoy the celebrations.
A picture thought I am sharing with you...
Making stone soup. And yes we do use a stone. See it in the pot? The person who gets the stone in their bowl gets a prize. This year I got it. My prize? Hugs and kisses from the kids. So much fun. You never know what kind of soup you will get because it's kept secret what each child brings. It's different everytime we make it. And perfect for a cold, blustery day.
