Outside my window… it is dark and miserable. Rain, cold, foggy, miserable miserable miserable
I am thinking…that the worst is over now in terms of commitment this Christmas and I can start to think about family and home stuff now. There is still quite a bit to do, but the main bit is over. I think!
I am thankful… there was cheese in the fridge tonight.
In the kitchen… I made a lot of soup yesterday for our Christmas Fair at church and there was a few portions left over, which have made their way into my freezer. My boys had some left over bacon and lentil soup for tea tonight. It smelled delicious!
I am wearing… grey t-shirt and grey slack trackies. Comfy.
I am creating… sadly not very much at the minute. I would like to be creating crocheted gifts for Christmas, cards, table decorations, greetings cards etc for Christmas, and I really need to indulge in some writing too.
I am going… to bed very soon. It has been a MAMMOTH few days and I need my sleep.
I am wondering… whether my wages will go into my bank tomorrow as they should or will they go awry again.
I am reading… “The Peculiar Life of a Lonely Postman” by Denis Theriaux
I am hoping… it snows soon. I’m fed up of the forecast promising us snow but all we’ve got is rain, rain and more rain.
I am praying for… Rita and David, Emma, Doreen, Eddie, my Dad, and those for whom Christmas is the worst time of the year for whatever reason.
I am looking forward to… some family time over Christmas.
I am learning… that my body can’t take the punishment it used to.
Around the house… it’s still messy and in desperate need of a clean before we can decorate for Christmas.
I am pondering… what to buy for Christmas for my family. Money is tight and so is time so it is difficult to say the least.
A favourite quote for today… “Happiness is different from joy. Happiness is fleeting and depends on circumstances; joy is much deeper than that” (Thank you Eddie)
One of my favourite things… is sleep.
