Baking, Socializing and More


 Yesterday I kept extremely busy in the kitchen throughout the morning and early afternoon.

It's a way for me to keep my mind off of troubling things.

Then there was a church service, followed by a party with fellow writers. 

Despite the heavy black cloud of sadness over the senseless killings of little children and adults in Connecticut, we did our best to celebrate the season.

We all talked about the tragedy, gave our opinions and voiced our sadness.


Today there are two more gatherings----a cookie exchange and then a house party.  

And the holiday beat goes on.

I hope you have a nice day today, filled with good things.

DOING ANYTHING FUN TODAY?

Yes, I had dinner with a very good girl friend, and afterwards my husband and I sat at the mall for awhile and "people watched"!

I had bad news from a friend to add to the other sorrorw...so I cried while making Christmas cards, baking muffins, and setting a table for guests...and life went on.

Good Sunday morning, Susan. I think we gain strength by gathering with our friends as planned.

This afternoon, our Lady Vols are at Texas to play basketball. The game is on TV, and we will enjoy watching it - as long as the Lady Vols win, of course.:-)

Have a good day!

Have fun at all your gatherings. I'm relaxing today at home as I've been under the weather all week. I talked to many people yesterday on the phone and that seemed to help me cope with the tragedy better. Enjoy your day!

I am wrapping and baking! Two things I love to do. It is so funny how we all find a way to cope with what happened. Today, I am doing "comfort" projects. Have a lovely Sunday! Kit

Such a senseless tragedy. I just don't understand how something like that can happen. We had a lovely weekend in Dubai and now it is back to the grind. But in just a few short days, our winter break will begin. Definitely looking forward to that. Hopefully I can get some baking done tomorrow. Best wishes to you, Tammy

One of my Facebook friends was scolded for talking about the way she had spent her day, as it involved doing some fun things. I think we all know that life must go on for us, even when there is tragedy all around. Those who have families have a responsibility to do something that will be meaningful and enjoyable for everyone around them, and I think your baking and gatherings are great ways to keep the light burning! :-)

It was very very hot today so sitting in the backyard was the way to go a patch of rain and a southley hit late afternoon so it cooled down a lot, we had one visiter so coffee and a chat went down well.

I was able to come home today and tonight I will sleep in my own bed! It's been a hard week but I'm glad for a little time home with the Mr before going back on Thur to my daughters!
hugs, Linda

Well besides feelings of sadness for all the people in Connecticut - Andy is really sick - so we didn't go out today - BUT we did watch a couple of Christmas shows. Glad you had some things to do.

The sun continues to rise and to set...life goes on....it is important to keep our focus on the Lord and learn.
