|Another Advent Counter - Easy & Pinterest For The Win|
We had some light snow, just about 5 cm which I am sure is helping everyone get in the Christmas mood. "THEY" say people spend more in Christmas shopping if there's snow about.
Our residential squirrel, Charlie, doesn't send a memo about his predication for the upcoming winter, but has grown quite a thick winter coat, which tells me that it's going to be cold, along with lots of fur between his toes, which indicates a lot of snow.

Currently I am reading, I am enjoying. Cannot remember who recommended. It is a love story, with a bit of back & forth in present time & memory time, but not that you get confused as to which time we are in.
In the shopping cart this week was a find I have been searching for, for years now. My local grocery store use to carry. Found Baxter's French Onion - Vegetarian - Soup at the newest gourmet grocery store, Longo's , just opened in the city closest to us. Score.
I attended a 1 hour workshop at the library, using their Cricut Air machine to cut these three cards. The little starlight village didn't cut out as well as it should have, but I can rescue it, with some bling gemstones & maybe some stickers from the stash.
As Christmas is in full swing so are the never ending emails for new online courses, preparing to review your 2017 & make ready for a fabulous 2018. A blog I read regularly posted the link for an article about things every woman should write about. It listed some very thought provoking questions. The original post by Amy Shearn was in Oprah's magazine. Link: 11 Things-Every-Woman-Should-Write-Down The prompts:
- What younger you would think about older you
- The watched/read it list
- The mistake you never want to make
- Your ideal outfit
- A deep dark secret
- The most unexpected complement you’ve received
- That one quote
- The best surprise you’ve ever had
- Your true happiness
- Your favourite failure
- An amendment to your bucket list
I don't currently have a bucket list to update, I don't even have a Santa Wish List written. I also have several mistakes I wish I hadn't made & therefore provide many (favourite) failure(s)! But I do have a quote, one that I have made a small poster of & keep on my desk.

On with the week, which I hope for everyone is showering you with seasonal blessings & spirit.
