December | day 5

December 5th
Each day in December MT gets a card where I write a few things that are going to happen that day. I’ve done this for years – and it’s still one of our favorite December traditions. Today he got Santa candy for breakfast (he made sure to eat his favorite bowl of rolled oats with milk first), some money to spend on the lottery in the evening and the task of writing down his Christmas wish list (witch we forgot to do, so that will be done Saturday, ops).

The 5-card above is from Paislee Press Designs journal cards kit This Day in December. I just wrote them out on my printer and cut them out. The plan is to use them as a little review of the day (on the front), as well our daily planned ‘happenings’ (on the back) – and stick them in my album together with the photos (once I get them back from the printer). My spin on an idea from Jamaica Makes. (I loved her mini-book too, I might do something like that next year… If I only can get around to buy some bookcloth tape!).

In the evening MT went out with his Grandparents, leaving me and Ferdinand (our dog) home alone. I had quite a few plans, but had to scrap it all since I got painful stomach ache and spent the night at the couch with my eyes closed instead. Bummer! (as I write this I’m much better, I think it was something I ate or it might have been a bug (heard those are going around, how fun) – trying to take things slowly to recover fast).

I only took one photo with my phone:

Happy Advent weekend. Thanks for stopping by.

December | day 4

Until next year So glad I got to spend a few minutes out of the house today. The frost and the two degrees below zero (Centigrade) made it so beautiful even without snow. I snapped quite a few photos both with my big camera and my phone. Once again reminded that a walk in the woods makes me happy. I should do it more often!

Frost on the ground
I only wish my neck hadn’t thrown me a curve ball, the day would have been so much more enjoyable without the thumping headache and nausea… Thankfully I managed to do what needed to be done both at home and at work, with a few short naps in between tasks. I didn’t quite feel like my self, though, and was rather short tempered too.

Thanks for stopping by. Wishing everyone a happy Advent weekend. Looking forward to a couple of days off, planning on staying inside making merry (for the most part), with a little bit of walking thrown in for good measure. It’ll be good.

Advent Star(s)

One of my favorite things to do in December is to hang up Advent stars in my windows. They just makes me so happy. I think it’s the dots of light. Love the light. I wish for more stars to hang. Spread the light.

After soccer practice I made MT popcorn and then we used the last half an hour before his bedtime to read a little in book 6 of the Harry Potter series. Looking forward to see the second to last movie with him soon.

Popcorn for supper Popcorn + Star We love popcorn. And stars. December is of to a good start.

Adding a couple captures from my phone:
