A movie recommendation....

I can't recall that I've ever made a movie recommendation on the blog before, so this is a "first."

A couple of years ago, I read a book by R.J.Palacio.  Wonder was listed on the United Methodist Women Reading list for that year, and it had also been a New York Times bestseller.  The book has now been made into a movie, and we included going to see it in our Thanksgiving plans. 

We were not disappointed!  How wonderful it was to be able to have a movie all the family could watch!  That is my recommendation!

Making lists....

Are you a list maker?  For many of my years, I was employed as an elementary school teacher.  That was definitely the time of list making for me!  In recent times, however, about the only list I make is the grocery list - and I truly depend on that one!!

Had I made a list for last week, it might have included something such as these -

-Have fresh towels in the bathroom.

๐Ÿ‘Got that one done!
- Be sure beds are ready.

๐Ÿ‘Got that one done, too!

-Bake that cake!

๐Ÿ‘Yum! Better hurry past this one!

-Set the table!

๐Ÿ‘The platter is ready and waiting for that turkey, and the place settings need flatware!

So - how did I do?  Well, the Thanksgiving guests have come and gone, and this is what I face today.

It is time to attend to the laundry, and it would appear that I have a large basket full to tackle!

Am I making a list this week?  Well, that laundry would be right at the top!  Also, it's time to start baking those cookies!

Which shape should I bake first?

Perhaps I will include addressing some cards....

They are definitely already in the house, just waiting for attention!

What about the tree?

This one was in the local bank just before Thanksgiving.  Isn't it beautiful?  Ours will not look quite like this one, though we think it will be just a lovely.

Yes, it is definitely the season of the year that making lists is helpful!  What about that one to dear old Santa?๐ŸŽ…He's making his list, too!๐Ÿ˜Š
