After a funeral in the early part of the day I went home to pic up MT from the school bus. Today was our little christmas present shopping expedition. We didn’t have many hours to spend, but most of it got (surprisingly) done(!) After the shopping I went back to work for a few hours to held a service in our ‘barn’ church. I love the colors and the light in here.
In the evening MT gathered up the money he had earned doing a few chores for me and his Grandma (he added a little from his own saving as well) for the class Advent project with focus on giving to other less fortunate and not only getting more self. Love this project.
In the late evening (after MT was in bed so it could be a surprise in the morning) I made the gingerbread dough for our annual gingerbread cookie baking party with our extended family on Friday afternoon. It really was a full day.
We are only 30 minutes away from the New Year here at our place. I’m excited for the new year and hope it’ll be a really good one. I’ve decided to finish my December post this time, though, so for a few more days/weeks that is what I’m going to blog.
Thanks for every nice word left here in 2013, they mean a lot to me!
Wish you everything good for 2014; hope to see you around!!
Ferdinand and I went for a walk on this low-light, foggy and cloudy day. It was starting to ice over and the fog was thick. Can’t help but think it was a little beautiful also, especially the light and those frozen branches all around us.
In the afternoon MT went with a friend home from school. I fell on the slippery ice and hurt my foot as I was getting ready to drive up to the church for a meeting. Ouch! I ended up canceling our meeting, but an hour later I dared down our icy road to pick up MT. I came both down to his friends house and back up to the farm, but not without sliding. It was really, really slippery.
Thanks for coming by my blog – I’m catching up here 🙂
