Day book is brought to you by Peggy.
Outside my window
it is colddd!...there is a thin sheet of ice on the little pond...this morning, I've seen the Hairy Woodpecker and a pair of Cardinals on the feeder..the sun is shinning...I want it to get just a bit warmer so I can decorate outside..all I've done is put Christmas lights on the porch...I want to do the bushes in front of the house and put garland on the fence.
just the furnace
I am thinking
my business on the computer has taken too long this morning...I need to be up working on my to-do list
Feeling thankful for
the funds to take care of gifts and other items this time of year
I am remembering
how much Daddy loved my fruitcake...I'm getting ready to make it this morning....
a home filled with Christmas cheer...pretty packages
I am currently reading
still working on Innocent...finished On Strike for Christmas and may start Three Cups of Tea next...
One year ago today
Honey Bear was working from home...I was shopping for our adopted family...we do one each year..yesterday, I bought two outfits for one of the children....
I am hoping
that I can get more done today before I get tired...I seem to run out of energy quicker these days(having a little Asthma flare up)...I want to get the tree up
On my mind
See 'what I'm thinking' above
It gets dark so early these days...when is the shortest day of the year..sometime this month
Pondering these words
"It is Christmas in the Heart that puts Christmas in the Air" T.S. Elliot
From the kitchen
baking fruit cake today but first I need to tidy and clean the kitchen.
Around the house
bits of decorations here and there...wrapping paper and boxes in the floor of the studio as well as scrapbook pages in progress....year end 'stuff' for clubs...sounds like a mess, right?
I am praying for
Jennifer...Carolyn and Nancy...Denise in Oklahoma...Faye
those without jobs at this time...
my son and his family...
A few plans for the week

From my picture file
I picked this up at Hallmark yesterday. It is tiny. I like having several Nativities around in my decorating.
