Accomplishment: making it through, for the first time, the entire ‘faruka’ dance that I’m learning in flamenco class.
Pleasant surprize: stepping on the scale to discover I’ve lost 13 pounds since Halloween.
Feeling of satisfaction: having a house full – all three of my kids are now home for the holidays.
Moment of excitement: learning that my brother’s new CD is out and a copy is in the mail for me, and learning that my oldest son’s CD release party is Dec. 29th. I heard a sneak preview of some of the tracks but I’m not allowed to share them with you until after the 29th.
‘Who would have thought’ moment: finding out that my daughter has spent time at the library over the last two days reading French books, because she misses learning French. AND finding out that she’s writing a children’s book.
Frugal Finds: several clear glass plates I picked up from a consignment store for pennies each. They’ll be used to hold the Christmas cookies I plan to give away as holidays gifts.
What I’m reading: Barbara Kingsolver’s Prodigal Summer.
Frustrations: that I haven’t yet found time to put up the Christms tree and that it’s so COLD here right now!
