Today reminded me that we can plan like crazy, imagine how events are going to unfurl and still we can be pleasantly surprised with how life unfolds.
- My December Daily picture and journal entry will be the story of being part of lighting the Advent candle at church for the first Sunday of Advent.
- This picture is my entry for the iHeartFaces Photo Challenge. Today’s topic was “elf”. I was going for the idea of elves having large, pointed ears. Seems like we have an elf-dog living amongst us.
- For “Journal Your Christmas”, the suggestion was made to choose one memory of the Christmas countdown from your past. I added a story about the Christmas packages that my Nanna and Da would send to us when I was young and the Advent calendars they would include. This will be added to my December daily album.
- 25 Christmas movies. Mike and I watched White Christmas. This is such a feel good movie yet I am always reduced to tears at the end when they sing the tribute to the General. Make sure you have tons of Kleenex.
“Elf-dog, really? Are you getting me back for not wearing the reindeer antlers?”
