Today I did THIS:
I wrote eight Christmas cards complete with notes inside, not just well wishes for the holiday and then my signature.
I mailed my sister her birthday gift, although late, it was a handmade tote and I had to make some adjustments to it from the original, which would have been sent on time. This one turned out cuter.
I prepared our dinner, even though I only remembered that I was going to make it, once my husband walked in from helping his son. It was still early enough to prepare it and put it in the oven to cook. We will be having chicken thighs with carrots and celery for flavor, cream of chicken soup, and wild rice, which I will soon prepare on the stove. Dinner will just be an hour later than usual, but still yummy.
I made my bed this morning.
I loaded and ran the dishwasher.
My husband and I played a game of cards (Kings in the Corner). I am winning for the month so far. We keep score each month, all year. My husband usually wins the month of December every year.
I started to organize my sewing room….again. I am tripping over things since moving things out of the spare bedroom to make room for guests. Now I need to still find where to put these things so I can find the floor to walk. Grrrrrrr.
I am planning how to make a couple small rugs for our newly remodeled lower bathroom. I have some plush upholstery fabric that could work. Good use of some fabric I don’t need. Am I crazy? YES…the answer is yes, but I spent so much time looking for a rug “Made in USA” to buy on the internet and not finding any I like after hours of “DREARY” and “BORING” searches. I refuse to buy from China!
I read a few pages of my new book that came in today written by Dr. David Jeremiah called, “Jesus’ Final Warning”, hearing Christ’s voice in the midst of chaos (1999).
I opened my mail. Tossed junk. Read some interesting articles in my new AMAC magazine and looked at a Christmas card from a friend (only signed…grrrr).
Today was a good day so far. Tonight we will have a good dinner, watch the “Walton’s”, relax reading in bed and have a good night’s sleep. God is good.
Always, God is good. See the good.
“Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things.” (Philippians 4:8)
