I am participating in a Simple Woman's Daybook for December 2017.
Outside my Window... The weather was nice the first few days of Advent. Hubby and I went on some walks at the beginning of Advent. That's how nice it was in Maryland for December. It must have been in the high 60's. Our family lit the Advent wreath at the first Advent Mass and brought up the gifts. We had three of our children with us and my son's fiancée. Today, for Christmas day, it is quite cold. It is sunny but there is a cold wind coming through our town. No more walks outside. Therefore, I went to walk on the treadmill at the gym after we all opened our presents.
I am Thinking...that I have five beautiful children that are all close and have kept the faith!
In the Kitchen...last night the girls made pizza after Christmas Eve Mass. Tonight we're having beef tenderloin. This morning the kids all made a Christmas breakfast.
I am Wearing...black sweats and a black warm up shirt.
I am Creating...a new Creation display for my dance and music homeschool classes.
I am Looking Forward to...Going to a spiritual mission at a local Church. The Franciscan Friars of the Renewal were there and my son's spiritual director was there too. It was nice to meet him.
Around the House...We still have to find someone to buy our piano and to give away our couch.
I am Praying...for all my children.
One of My Favorite Things...was having Thanksgiving with my family. It was good to see my mom. She is 85 years old. Also spending Christmas with the family.
A Few Plans for Next Week...going out to lunch with my friend, her daughter, and my daughter.
Here are some recent pics of the family at Thanksgiving time and Christmas time:
