Outside… 
It’s warming up, right now it’s 69° but it’s supposed to get up to 75° with a low tonight of 54°. My dog and I were woken at 5:50 this morning by really loud thunder etc, so I checked the weather app and there was a tornado warning until 7:00. Thankfully we only got rain, wind, lightening, and thunder.

New To Me Stuff:
Since I was a little kid, Lucky Charms has been my favorite cereal. I saw Lucky Charms Frosted Flakes Marshmallow and I thought I’d buy a box to see if I liked them. They weren’t as good as the original Lucky Charms. The taste was off and the frosted flakes instead of  oat cereal pieces felt weird. I’ll be sticking with the original Lucky Charms

Today’s To Do List…
Work, then maybe go for a ride to let my doggy try out her new car booster seat, read, tv

Looking forward to…
Having next weekend off

Outside… 
I thought I lived in Florida but the last few days has been COLD, especially in the mornings. Yesterday and today I had to let my car warm up until the frost on my windows melted. We had freeze warnings both nights and it was only 32° at 6:30 am. If I’m going to live where it gets so cold, I WANT SOME SNOW!

Reading…
I’ve given up, I can’t seem to finish a book so I’m taking a few days break and will start over next year

Listening To…
I’m doing a little better listening to audio books and am half way through The Christmas Train by David Baldacci. I’m enjoying it and hopefully I’ll be done before the end of the year 🙂

Watched…
I watched It’s A Wonderful Life (original b&w) all the way through for the first time, and it was very good! I also watched Almost Christmas, very funny and a bit sad

In The Kitchen This Week…
Haven’t thought about it much but will probably try a new recipe I saw… 3-Ingredient Pizza Crescent Rolls. I also want to make a turkey breast in the slow cooker, and of course for New Years I’ll make Black Eyed Peas & Snaps with ham (mine with a little stewed tomatoes mixed up in them), corn bread, cabbage, mac & cheese (?) & brownies

New To Me Stuff:
I’ve never been a fan of Cranberry Sauce but my son wanted some that was homemade so I made some for Christmas. It was SO easy and so much better than canned

Today’s To Do List…
I don’t plan on doing anything other than watch some movies and maybe read

Looking forward to…
2021, praying it’s better than 2020 was
Joining a few reading challenges & making them a priority

May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace as you trust in him, so that you may overflow with hope by the power of the Holy Spirit
