Listening...to The Boy as he works his way through Star Trek Voyager on Netflix. Love that he has become a Trekkie like me.
Loving...that we had a wonderful, quiet Christmas. I loved seeing the joy my children had as they gave their gifts to each other. So grateful for the blessing of Jesus Christ and the opportunity to celebrate his birth.
Thinking...about what this new year will bring to us: experiences, people, blessings, opportunities.
In my kitchen...probably grilled burgers for dinner. After all, it is snowing and our family tradition is to have Snow BBQ.
Wearing...jeans and a cream colored turtleneck and Christmas socks.
Needing...to finish the Cousin's Book. Each Christmas my sister and I put together a Cousin's Book. The grandchildren (14 living) are asked questions (same questions each year:) and we include a new photo. Each family gets a copy. My children love to look at the Cousin's Books. I love seeing how my nieces and nephews change each year and how some of their answers stay the same.
Reading...Against the Tide by Elizabeth Camden
Today...some family time. We got a couple of new family games for Christmas and we're dying to play them. Doctor Who 50th Anniversary Monopoly and Star Trek Scene-It.
Hoping...for The Doctor to work on my back some more. I sprained/strained my sacroiliac region (backside) on Christmas Eve and it's a really nice perk being married to a chiropractor who has the equipment and knowledge to treat me at home. It's much better now, but still has some residual achiness.
Planning...for New Years. The Boy will be attending a big youth New Years Eve dance at church and he's looking forward to it. I'm not sure what the rest of us will do. We're not big party people. Perhaps a rewatch of the Doctor Who Christmas Special is on order.
Gratitude...for girlfriends and a girls day out on Friday that included lunch and Les Miserables.
From my world...Les Miserables was wonderful. Absolutely amazing. I am still reflecting on it. I loved it the first time I saw it on stage 23 years ago. I loved the film and what they did. So beautiful, so raw, so moving. I sobbed during Valjean's death scene. Well cast. Well done. I will be seeing it again next week with The Doctor.
