Weekend Reflections 12/10

Looking outside…it’s cold and cloudy with a chance of snow. We had snow Thursday and Friday. Unfortunately for The Artist, no snow day on Friday. We have shoveled a lot of snow though.Listening…to Christmas songs. My stereo hold 5 CDs. I have quite a few Christmas albums and I alternate them in my car, where I currently have SHeDAISY: Brand New Year, Elvis Presley Christmas Duets and Andrea Bocelli: My Christmas. In the house? My favorites that just don’t change. Collin Raye Christmas, Afterglow: A Christmas Wish, Vince Gill: Let There Be Peace on Earth, Osmond Family Christmas that I sometimes swap out for Amy Grant: A Christmas Album and Alabama Christmas. And it’s not Christmas until you hear Alabama sing, Thistlehair the Christmas Bear. Truly.Loving…spent time with my mom this week to celebrate my birthday early since I won’t be here for part of next week. We did some shopping and lunch, which is our tradition. I found two skirts. I love skirts, I wear them all year and I’ve wanted to find some denim skirts I could wear with my boots this winter. CJ Banks is my favorite store. I even shoveled snow and spread ice melt yesterday wearing a skirt.Thinking…that I really need to get my act together and figure out Christmas.In my kitchen…a cup of hot chocolate right now. Wearing…red penguin pajamas, gray turtleneck and black cardigan.Hoping…that answers come. There are some uncertainties on our immediate horizon and faith isn’t always an easy thing.Reading…nothing to review yet.Today…dinner with friends tonight. I’m looking forward to good food and even better company with lots of laughter.Quoting…”The only gift I’ll ever need is the joy of family. Oh, why? ‘Cause that’s Christmas to me”. — That’s Christmas to Me, PentatonixFeeling…So tired. So drained. This has been a long and difficult year for different reasons.Planning…next week. On Thursday, I am driving over to Rexburg to pick up The Boy from school and we will drive down to Salt Lake for a wedding. We’ll come home Sunday. I’m looking forward to spending time with him and seeing friends. But, I don’t like leaving The Doctor and The Artist.Gratitude…for fuzzy socks, thick blankets, fireplaces and warm cups of hot chocolate.From my world… We’ve had a week filled with snow and ice. It’s definitely winter here. This is my Scrabble Word Art for the week. Can you see what words I put up and then what word The Artist added? We are all about Godzilla at our house. I love it!What about you? What are you reflecting on this week? How has your week gone?©Holly B. of 2 Kids and Tired Books 2007-2014 All rights reserved.
