December 1st-Journal Entry

     Today is December 1st, and as I have for the past two years, I am going to attempt to take part in the Journal your Christmas-December Daily. This year because it's my first year with a Blog, I have decided to make my journal entries on my Blog, instead of a paper journal. I will try to make an entry at least every couple of days...with my thoughts and maybe some photos.

     Today it does not look very much like Christmas or December for that matter, it is 8 degrees and raining. I am not a huge fan of snow and cold weather, but I love snow for the holidays. It does not feel like Christmas to me, if there is no snow on the ground, this has only happened once in my life time. About two years ago, we had no snow till the 26th of December and it really did not feel like Christmas at all, it felt more like Thanksgiving. I am sure within the next 24 days we will see some of the white stuff falling. Yesterday my Head Nurse posted our Christmas schedule, and I got lucky!!! She gave me 7 days off for Christmas, I am so happy, it's nice to have time off during the holidays to spend with family and friends. Well I guess that's all for today.  

      This is one of my first Christmas crafts for this year, I have seen these types of trees in all the gallerys, and I wanted to try one. I used my leaf punch and just punched a whole lot of leaves in three colors, easy to do when you are just sitting in front of the TV watching your favorite show. I used a styrofoam cone shape and glued on all the leaves, I like how simple it looks, but pretty too.
