A Month of Challenges – Day 20 (December 20)

  • My December Daily journal entry will be about shopping for Jessie’s gift.
  • ff1This picture is my entry for the iHeartFaces Photo Challenge.  Today’s topic was “furry faces”.   I was faced with a dilemma today until Mike suggested I take a picture of him WITH the dogs. Not as easy as you would think.
  • For “Journal Your Christmas”, today’s journal prompt is all about the thought we put into gift giving.  This has been a really special Christmas because I have had the time to really give some thought to the gifts I want to give.  Some folks will still be getting gift cards, but where appropriate I have spent time thinking about the person and have had the time and space to put my creative juices to work.  I have particularly loved my niece Jessie’s list this year.  One item she wants is a drawing of a tomato.  You better believe I’m trying to come up with the best rendition of a tomato I can get, especially considering I lack any and all artistic ability.  Should be fun!
  • christmas memory25 Christmas movies.  Mike and I watched “A Christmas Memory”.  Buddy, a boy abandoned by his parents, goes to live with some older cousins and develops a friendship with Sook. They have many adventures together, including baking 31 fruit-cakes which they give as Christmas presents.  Mike announced during that part of the movie that he’s not a fan of fruit cake to which I replied, “I know.”  We really do live on the edge!

Until tomorrow,  Grace
