December Daily ~ December 2 to 10

December Daily 2014

December 2

I tried to bake raisin bread today and only realized that I do not have bread flour, I had to substitute it with regular flour and cake flour, it turn out good though.
We are both missing my brother-in-law Dan today, it has been weeks since he passed, but we are still thinking about him a lot : (




December 3

I had a bad dream last night, that reminded me that I need to cherish the love ones that are still by my side even more.

Everyday is a blessing!

I finally work on my christmas cards and gifts list this evening.



December 4

It is raining today in Las Vegas, Papi and I went for our weekly walk, it was fun to walk Papi in the rain.

December 5

Finally, the tree and Christmas decor is up today!
These are part of my winter decor this year, the ornaments on the tree is going to be white



entrance table



coffee table



mantel decor






December 6

Papi hasn't been eating well, he is a picky eater and eats only when he is very hungry, even though we never give him table food at all, he still never finish his bowl of bowl every meal, so I decided to change the kind of food I give him, well... this is a lot moist then the dry food he had, he LOVES it and finish it up in seconds



We went to Burton Cumming's concert tonight, he is the lead singer of GUESS WHO, even though it is not the kind of music I would listen to, but I had to admit that it was a good concert




December 7

I went shopping and get Papi's his christmas present today.
I also mixed Papi's regular dry food with the moist food, guess what, he only picked out all the moist one and leave the dry ones in the bowl! : (



Another great concert tonight - Lee Greenwood, his "God blessed the USA" is one of my favorite at the Bellagio musical fountain






December 8

All the christmas cards and gifts are packed, I am waiting to get ink so I could print labels.




December 9

I do some fried doughnuts today, it was great, hubby likes the coconut topping and I like the sugar ones.




December 10

I started painting our dining room today, when we bought the house, every wall is just plain white, hubby hates it, over the years, I painted my girls' room, the guest room, and finally now the dining room. Because my body ached so much after the last time, I tell myself not to rush to finish and allow myself 2-3 days to complete the work, but guess what, I still did it in a day, from 12 pm to 6 pm, what I do is go really slow, do a bit of stretching and exercise along the way, and my arms and body didn't really feel that bad this time.

Hello Kirsty! So glad I stopped by and could see all your December fun. I love your decorations and pages!! Great job keeping up on them too. WOW, I can believe you did all the painting yourself. I want to start painting our downstairs rooms and plan taking a week or more, lol. We hate painting, maybe we should get it all done like you did instead.
Glad Papi likes his new food.

Have a very Merry Christmas! HUGS!
