Today I made Cranberry cookies. I took a shower, cleaned the upstairs floors, and played hockey in the driveway with Louie. I fixed a string of lights on our tree. found two ducks (whom I named Bert and Janie) in the pond, and I let Anna hop outside. I wrapped presents, and watched Louie & Luke throw rocks into the pond. I watched the Nativity Story last night. I loved it. St. Joseph was my favorite. Fr. Jose gave me a wonderful Confession yesterday, I love our priests! Fr. Bernard was also hearing them, but I felt like going to Fr. Jose instead. So far, I have only eaten one candy cane this year. Most remarkable. Our new neighbors gave us a huge bag brimming with different homemade gifts. They live to give. They are quite sweet! I have ventured into the world of card making and so far have made 12. I used calligraphy and Christmas rubber stamps. I was bored so I made them for all of our near neighbors. It was satisfying. Today it hasn't rained! Most remarkable, if you ask me. Now I think I will go outside, and fine something to do, perhaps in the fire barrier, perhaps somewhere else. May you have the rest of a Blessed Advent and a Joyful and Peaceful Christmas.
