261. cleaning done by someone else because hubby got a deal via a group buy

262. new swimming session that is starting with a lower price

263. great food + wonderful people = Marvelous Christmas party at our church

264. finishing a book discussion with my husband’s brother and wife

265. planning another book to read and discuss with them (their turn to pick the book)

266. a child who can babysit + errands to do = possibility of spending more one on one time with each other kids

267. baking a recipe that my mom used to do

268. adapting said recipe for our needs because the original way of doing it was too long…

269. my oldest wanting to make a batch of the recipe by himself

270. delicious Heavenly Mushrooms like my brother-in-law would say…   (he did mentioned that it tasted like heaven! *grin*)





  1. A mother's recipe- there is such gift in that- her hands working the dough, her welcoming us into the kitchen to see how it's done, the legacy, the memories, the taste. How good of God to give so richly through our mothers! Blessings this advent season!

  2. Joining you from Ann's place. What a great list of gratitudes, especially 267. Thanks for sharing and have a Merry Christmas.
