:: cooking chili from fresh tomatoes tonight, no leftovers which means it was gooooooooood. The cornbread was excellent and I couldn't figure out why it tasted so different. I have been making it with whole wheat flour for a while now, so that couldn't be it. Same old cast iron skillet. Hmmmmm. Oh yeah, never added the corn meal! It was corn-less corn bread! A giant pancake basically, lol. Well, people were ready to fight for the last piece, so, again, it must have been good!
:: hearing Christmas carols galore! I can't get enough of them. I am catching the kids singing them too. Vlad was singing an original carol to his friend and I overheard bits and pieces that involved shooting down terrorists and playing some air hockey. Could be a little more Christmas-y, but then again, everyone's a critic.
:: needing lists and notes to remember basic things because my mind is going on multiple channels. Ah, to be young and well-rested
:: thinking about Christmas cookies. I must start tomorrow or I will never get any made.
:: doing my gift shopping online and with handmade. Lots more to make but most of my buying is done. Oh, but the wrapping!
:: making gift bags out of some old transformer t-shirts and they are rad! Even the drawstring is made from the old shirt.
:: keeping up with home schooling even though there is a huge lack of focus around these parts. We are needing a Christmas break big time. Soon, soon, soon...
:: loving the changes we made to the bathroom! And especially the guy that made it happen!
:: wanting to get the house decorated but needing to get it straightened up first.
:: plotting when to schedule my next work day. And dreading the way it will make my feet feel (like they might explode).
:: feeling happy that Matt helped me make our Christmas cards. I love working on projects with him!
:: preparing to write in the cards and address them. Seriously preparing, like finger pushups and wrist stretches.
:: looking forward to seeing my brothers soon! and Margret, which is a treat! And Zaki, (the doggy nephew) for the first time!
:: Loving the sound of Wolf playing the piano. It is so exciting to watch
:: enjoying my newly painted table. It is a cheery yellow and makes me feel happy. And reminds me of a super sweet guy that spent most of his vacation painting stuff for me.
::Feeling so happy with the yarn bowl Matt made me from a wooden thrift store bowl.So cool!
:: putting a little love in every stitch while making presents. I love to think about the person I am knitting, sewing or crocheting for and have happy, loving thoughts about them while I work away. It leaves me feeling happy and that is such a good thing.
