I am now going to share with you my December Daily Album! Not sure if I will share one page a day, or several. Today, I am just sharing one.
The photos on the left are of a gift 'a salt box' one of my sweet customers gave me for Christmas. She got it in Bali, while away on a 2-year detail in Singapore. She is one of my Boise Customers, Thank you, Elaine!. On the right, you can barely see the title 'First Gift' - in white flocked alphas from Prima. Yummmm!
And, these pages have absolutely nothing to do with the 'diary' post below! But, I wanted to capture my first gift in the album:)
Below are the actual blog notes I wrote on December 1st.
*******************December 1st - Daily Diary
I'm just writing thoughts right now! Capturing some ideas...
Approach to December Daily: Ali Edwards - December Daily Dec. 1
Just one story a day! Love it...
So.. which story????
Today is December first... And it came with a BANG! At 6am we got the 'all call' phone call from school. School is delayed for 2 hours due to last night's huge honking snow storm. The kids were released early yesterday, but did not get home until late. Bad roads. I had breakfast ready at 5:45am. Oatmeal with raisins and cranberries, and sliced apples on the side. The kids opted to sleep in an extra hour.
My morning? Up at 4:00 am. Started a fire in the woodstove, made coffee, cooked breakfast. The usual.
Then caught Tim's 12 Tags of Christmas - Day 1! Giddy... I just love sneaking up to the computer once all my indoor chores are done, with my first cup of coffee (today I put Eggnog in!) and seeing what Tim has to share! (Note: later I found out I was a winner from Tim's day 1 comments!)...
Fa la la la la!
Note: Tim's Tag: I want to put a scene behind the house windows... a peek at Christmas!
Outdoor chores: Phew.. boatloads of snow. I sweated when hauling water to the chickens. Shoveled snow out front. Man, I am out of shape!
Lunch with Ann Louden - she is leaving for 6 weeks to take care of a friend who had a lung transplant. Ann is an Angel. Talk about giving of one self.
today was 'Cut and color' day. My hair.
