I did it!  I took the plunge and signed up for 30 Days of Lists for December.

My daughter, Amy is hosting this project with her friend Kam and although I’m going to be pretty busy in December, I thought I could squeeze in some time to do this for at least some of the days.

I’m not setting expectations to create journals or scrapbook pages or even create a book or anything, but I THINK I can at least write a list a few days each week.  You see, I’m not even committing to doing it every day.  I’ll just take it one day at a time and see how it goes.

As soon as I saw the challenges for the first two days I started thinking of pictures that I could take to go along with a blog post with the list, so that’s probably what I’ll do.

Dec 1 – Before the end of the year…

Dec 2 – Around my home…

These are the first two challenges for lists.  I’ll have to get to work on them tomorrow.

Let me know if you sign up.

Happy Holidays!

Today Terry and I celebrate 35 years together.  This is a picture of our wedding invitation, created by our precious and talented friend, Gary DeLacy.  It was printed on a 3 1/2 x 4 1/2 inch piece of clear plastic and we couldn’t understand why our parents complained about the small font.  Now we understand.

We won’t actually be doing much celebrating today, but will enjoy some special time together later this week. You see December is a great month for a wedding, but a crazy month for an anniversary.  There are always so many other things going on and so many other things to spend money on that we’ve often celebrated in January or February. But this year we’ll have a chance to get out of town for a few days and just hang out together. No big presents, no big parties, just time together, which is my favorite kind of anniversary celebration.Terry and Nancy

  24. he does all the yard work even when it’s 115 degrees
  25. he laughs hard with me about the silliest things, even to the point of tears
  26. he kills bugs and takes out the trash
  27. he’s good at researching purchases, trips and all kinds of stuff
  28. he let me have a cat (for 21 years) even though he wasn’t a Cat Person. He fell in love with that cat too, even though he wouldn’t admit it for the first decade or so.

  30. he’s great at grilling AND always helps with clean up
  31. he goes to musicals with me and doesn’t make fun of them, even though he thinks they’re kind of silly

  33. he lets me take pictures of his food when we’re out for dinner, and he stops and waits when I want to take pictures (without complaint) wherever we go.
  34. he’s flexible and accommodating
  35. he loves me so much more than I deserve! (of course, you can probably tell that)

I’m so thankful that God brought us together. I think I’ll keep him around for another 35, if he’s willing.

2012-01-christmas-manifesto

O.k., here goes! Journal your Christmas 2012 has begun.  Attempting to do a blog post each day in the month of December.  Already resigning myself to the fact that it won’t happen every day, but maybe I can post a photo and a caption at least to document the day.  Then later I’ll put it into a Blurb book like my clever daughter did last year.  Although she was doing a different project, called December Daily.  At times I’ll be focusing more on documenting traditions, holiday activities, etc. with Shimelle and her gang at Journal Your Christmas.  I’d love to have you join me.

See you tomorrow!
