The Simple Woman's Daybook - Monday, December 21, 2009

For today...

Outside my window...snowy and gray. We don't have a lot of snow, just enough to cover the grass. While driving through my neighborhood I saw a ton of snowmen from the snow we got on Saturday.

I am thinking...I would like to be at home right now. There are some cards I want to make and I am in the mood to make cookies. Maybe next year I'll take this time off.

I am thankful...for my church. I love, love, LOVE my church. Yesterday's service was just wonderful and unique. There was no sermon, just praise songs and segments talking about the different characters in the story of Jesus' birth. My church really makes Scripture come alive!

I am reading...Captivating. I haven't had a whole lot of time to read. I hope to catch up on some reading this weekend.

I am hoping...that we have a smooth week and continue to remember the true meaning of this special holiday.

From the kitchen...Last night I made chicken tetrazzini (which is fast becoming a favorite), appetizers for Christmas Eve and turkey and all the fixings Christmas Day. Last night Rondell made a 5-flavor cake. I'll post the recipe soon.

Around the house...the gifts are still hidden in their secret place.

One of my favorite things...Christmas morning...I can't wait!

A few plans for the rest of the week...we have a Christmas dinner with friends tonight, finishing up some cards, going to Christmas Eve service and then to my uncle's, enjoying Christmas morning!

How you you today...share here.

I can't believe we only have a few more days until Christmas! I still have a TON of stuff to do! I baked cookies on Saturday for like 8 hours, so I am not in the mood to bake cookies today! But I still have to do gingerbread boys and jam thumbprint cookies before Christmas!

Your church sounds wonderful! Unfortunately our services were cancelled yesterday due to the weather and road conditions.
I hope that you and your family have a wonderfully blessed Christmas! :)

I so wish we had snow here. I really want a white Christmas, but I think it just going to be a wet Christmas.
Have a great day!

I still have presents to wrap! aaaah! I think I might run out of wrapping paper too! I've been getting so stressed with wrapping and hiding the presents and forgetting where some things are! haha! Now that we are finishing up the basement, I hope I don't lose my hiding spots for next year! We didn't get much snow either, but it's in the forecast...and we'll be in CO for Christmas break...LOTS of snow! Enjoy your Christmas...I get so excited too!

You have a beautiful family. I wish we had a little snow. I keep hoping. We don't get much here in AR. I love chicken tetrazini I can't remember how you spelled it. Years ago there was a package mix for it but I haven't seen one for a while. I hope you and your family have a wonderful Christmas. Doylene
