I can't believe it's been almost a year since I last did this.
Today got off to an early start with a phone call that one of my patients was about to deliver. I rushed in and made it in between the birth of the baby boy and the placenta. I was thankful to then be able to rush back home with a detour to pick up birthday doughnuts for my favorite three year old and take the other two kids to school.
I was worried I wouldn't get any good pics because I was at work (indoors) for most of the daylight hours and then we had a small group fellowship meeting but once I downloaded everything I was happy to see I got a few nice ones.
It has been crazy windy here (as evidenced by the numerous fires that are raging). So windy, in fact, that we have been unable to even play outside in the evening it was so miserable. Thankfully (especially for the firefighters!) the wind was less today and we got rid of some much needed energy outside. Lots of people have been concerned about us. Thankfully all the fires are far enough away that we haven't been much affected. School was cancelled today due to fire concerns, but they will be back at school tomorrow.
Some Sundays are rather stressful around here. We do our best to try to limit what we do so we do not feel overwhelmed, but I often feel exhausted at the end of the day.
Today was really nice, though. Jeff has had to go in early a lot of recent Sundays for meetings, but today he didn't, which made for a much more relaxed morning.
The kids got to play outside before we left.
After church we picked up our tree and came home and decorated it. We listened to Christmas music, drank hot chocolate, ate popcorn, and got our Christmas decorations up. The kids watched a Christmas peanuts movie while Jeff and I facetimed with some old friends. All in all, today was delightful.
