Thanksgiving 2022 has come and gone and now we begin the countdown to Christmas.
We ate leftovers for our main meal of the day today from our Thanksgiving Day feast yesterday and I started work on the Christmas decor. Tonight, we're enjoying the Christmas ambience that comes with sitting in a room with the only light coming from a Christmas tree or Christmas decorations. (Hubby is watching football, so there is light from the TV screen, but that's it.) I think this is one of my most favorite things about the holidays, this cozy Christmas time of the evening when all is calm, somewhat quiet, and the room is lit by the tree decorations!
Today is 'Black Friday,' traditionally a day when most folks go shopping for deals, we talked about it and decided we didn't want to go ... so we didn't! Neither of us could think of a thing that we wanted or needed that our budget could afford, so we decided to pass on it this year. We realized all over again how very blessed we are! We are not rich by any stretch of the imagination, but God has been faithful to provide a way for us to have our basic needs and a lot of our wants met. We thank Him for that!
I'm going to try doing a daily countdown to Christmas post from now through Christmas Eve. I hope you will pop in everyday to see what we're doing. I'm going to pause our weekly pantry challenges but will for sure be keeping my eyes open for good deals to add to my pantry throughout the countdown to Christmas days. I encourage you to do the same!
That's it for the first day in our 'counting down to Christmas' 2022 series!
My pantry is intentional, purposeful, simple, practical, frugal and what works for my family. It’s the food items and household supplies that keep my household running smoothly ready and available when they are needed. It’s my contribution to our family’s economy and my work-from-home ‘job.'
