The Simple Woman’s Daybook for Christmas Week!

For Today… December 25, 2015 … The Monday before Christmas

Outside my window…. it’s rainy and dreary.  The sun isn’t entirely up yet, I think.

I am thinking… about wrapping presents.

I am thankful… I finished shopping on Saturday, with three gifts to come from Amazon.

I am wearing… pajamas. Kids are still abed.

I am creating… a grocery list. We need to do a quick shop for the week, then we have nothing else on the calendar until Christmas Eve. Ahhhh.

I am going… to send Christmas Cards, too. I need to get on my old computer to find the address list …

I am wondering… how late the girls will sleep if I let them …

I am reading… ‘Twas the Night Before Christmas. I have my old Holly Hobbie version on the mantle.

I am hoping… those last three presents have no issues being delivered.

I am learning… to enjoy the quiet while I have it … N-boy came downstairs right after I typed that all the children were abed.

In my kitchen… we’re using our Christmas plates and wine glasses. I do love that.

In my garden… the Christmas lights are twinkling. I wish the trees would cease falling over, though.

In the homeschool… I think my wireless, Bluetooth speaker is working again. Woo-hoo!

A favorite quote for today… “But Mary treasured up all these things, pondering them in her heart.”  Luke 2:19 I was thinking “ponder” would be a good word of the year, then I thought how the quote goes well with *revel* (treasuring) and Attend! (one must notice to treasure and ponder).

A peek into one of my days…

One of my favorite things… Christmas! I still have a lot to do: Chex Mix, mail Christmas Cards, wrapping, etc.

From the board room… if it’s almost Christmas, it’s almost New Year’s. I always put New Year’s ideas on my January board, so here it is if you’re starting to think about that celebration, too …

Post Script… Mystie has a great last-minute gift for you at Simplified Pantry. A versatile, pantry based cooking system for breakfast, lunch, dinner, and snacks … for new cooks and old? Yes, please! As always, I am not an affiliate for this program.  Enjoy!

And, Merry Christmas to you and yours!
