The lake has a thin coating of ice on it now.
I walked 6.5 miles
Today I made Christmas cards for my two kids and four grandchildren. A time consuming project but a fun thing to do. I also wrapped presents and I'm just about done with it all. Just have a couple more to wrap. We don't buy a lot of stuff so I am really not stressed at Christmas time.
A lot of people I know don't send Christmas cards out anymore and I'm joining that group of people this year. It's not a fun thing to do anymore because there are just too many to write out. I like to write a little something in each card and it takes forever. Some people just send you a card because you sent them one. Then sending cards just becomes an obligation and I just don't want to do to that anymore. What I am going to do though, is throughout the year, make a thinking of you card and write a letter to each person who would have been on my card list that I only hear from at Christmas. They will surprised to get a card and letter from me sometime during the year.
Didn't really do much of anything else today. Just the regular house chores that had to be done.
I'm off now to make a recipe of Bean Soup that I haven't made in years. I found it among my recipes while making up my shopping list yesterday. It's a cold day out and just perfect for an evening of some nice hot soup.
I hope this Thursday you found bits of happiness scattered through the day.
A smile from me to you.
I will honor Christmas in my heart,
and try to keep it all the year.
