A Month of Challenges – Day 21 (December 21)

  • My December Daily journal entry will be about wrapping gifts and getting ready for Christmas at my mom’s.
  • wrappedThis picture is my entry for the iHeartFaces Photo Challenge.  Today’s topic was “wrapped”.   All wrapped and ready to go.
  • For “Journal Your Christmas”, today’s journal prompt is all about the reality of Christmas.  Where we find ourselves right now.  So with that in mind…

    Currently, I’m
    sipping hot cocoa with marshmallows
    so excited to see my nieces and nephews over Christmas
    hearing the soft snores of doggies sleeping
    finding it hard to believe that Christmas is almost here
    appreciating how wonderful my husband is
    reading “Harry Potter:  Prisoner of Azkaban”
    beginning to start my list of goals for 2013
    lighting candles around the house
    listening to Mike practice his trombone for our Christmas eve service
    making knitted gifts
    prepping all the ingredients for Yorkshire puddings

  • die hard25 Christmas movies.  Mike and I had to make a last minute substitution because “A Charlie Brown Christmas” is on a very long wait with Netflix and won’t make it in time.  A couple of observations:  In 1988, gasoline was 75 cents a gallon in Los Angeles and little did they know when they were discussing the ingredients of Twinkies that 24 years later they would be gone forever (maybe some of those 24-year-old Twinkies are still good).  All in all, a really good Christmas movie.  Maybe it should be put on our permanent list?

Until tomorrow,  Grace
