A Month of Challenges – Day 3 (December 3)

Today I began decorating.  Man, how I’ve missed this.  I love going through the boxes of ornaments and strolling down memory lane.  It’s been so long since I did this, I’ve forgotten about many of the items we have.  This is going to be a fun week.

  • 100_4270My December Daily picture and journal entry will be the story about my challenges with Woody and Ellie and the reason for the Wall Tree.
  • 100_4260This picture is my entry for the iHeartFaces Photo Challenge.  Today’s topic was “what you’re reading”.  I am working through the Harry Potter series after having tried to get started several times.  I don’t know what’s different now but I’m taking advantage of my interest.
  • For “Journal Your Christmas”, today’s journal prompt was about planning for Christmas. The overwhelming thought that kept popping into my head was how wonderful my parents made Christmas for us as kids.  I remember the cookies for Father Christmas, decorating the tree, the year I got roller skates that were tied onto my shoes and being seven and starting to question the authenticity of Father Christmas, but being convinced by my dad that Father Christmas used fairy dust to unlock the windows to get into our house (we didn’t have a chimney).  Yes I was gullible.
  • wonderful life25 Christmas movies.  Mike and I watched “It’s a Wonderful Life”.  And it’s a wonderful movie.  The
    best part, for me, the reminder at the end from Clarence, the angel… No man (or woman) is a failure who has friends.

Until tomorrow,  Grace
