A Month of Challenges – Day 18 (December 18)


  • My December Daily journal entry will be about finishing up gifts for friends.
  • ellieThis picture is my entry for the iHeartFaces Photo Challenge.  Today’s topic was “it’s cold outside”.   Dog walks in the winter require gloves, a scarf and a warm hat. Today I could have used some earmuffs, but the pair I had met a quick demise thanks to a couple of vigilant canines.
  • For “Journal Your Christmas”, today’s journal prompt is all about the Christmas dinner.  My family always has a traditional roast turkey with stuffing dinner with Yorkshire pudding, roast potatoes and vegetables.  I remember being about 10 and getting up early to Christmas Day 011help my mom prepare the stuffing by grating pieces of bread by hand.  I was relieved the day she bought a food processor!  She and I still work together to prepare the meal, but the job of making the Yorkshire puddings has been passed onto me.  Here’s a picture of last year’s Yorkshire puddings.  She’s still in charge of the turkey.  One of these days I’ll have to give that a go.
  • Christmas Story25 Christmas movies.  Mike and I watched “A Christmas Story”.  Such a great movie and a wonderful reminder of how imaginative kids are and their perspective of life, especially at Christmas.

Until tomorrow,  Grace
