Life: It Goes On - December 27

Hope those of you who celebrate have all had a wonderful Christmas! Ours was busy, as always, but we've finished it off today with just the five of us which I always love as a way to end the holiday. We missed some of the family who couldn't be with us but loved spending time with both sides of our family. Way too much food, perhaps a bit too much alcohol, an abundance of gifts, a wealth of love - it was a good last few days.

This Week I'm:

Listening To: Only Christmas music this week, including Silent Night sung in German by a small girl and her mother during the living Nativity scene at our Christmas Eve service.

Watching: A lot of episodes of "Fixer-Upper;" football, including the Huskers bowl game victory; and a last few Christmas shows. Sadly, I never did catch "Love Actually" this year - guess I'll just have to look for it on Netflix!

Reading:  Faithful Place when I have had time for reading.

Making: Ham, chili, enchiladas, cheesy hash brown potatoes, cranberries, cheese balls, cream cheese breakfast pastry, green chili egg casserole, taco soup - all of the calories!

Planning: I'm just going to bask in the afterglow of Christmas as I try to put my house back in order this week.

Grateful for: See above!

Enjoying: A good laugh. Remember this post from the other day? Guess what I got from my boys?! To be fair, I actually did need a new vacuum. And The Big Guy was smart enough to balance it out with a new book.

Feeling: Blessed. Again, see above.

Looking forward to: New Year's Eve with friends. What I am NOT looking forward to is the enormous snowstorm forecast for tomorrow. We've hardly had winter this year and then we got 8" of snow on Christmas Eve and 6-11+ are forecast for tomorrow. How many more days until spring?

What was your favorite memory from the past week?
