December 7

Sunday dawned bright and sunny, although still a December sky (grayish). The 7th is my birthday. I love being able to wear plaid on my birthday and I added my red shoes too. We headed off to church in the morning and had the lovely surprise of friends showing up at church to worship with us! They agreed to come home with us for Sunday lunch and my mom, as usual, also joined us.

For lunch we had a new recipe that I really love -- Slow Cooker Carne Adovada. And my mom slaved over some gluten-free, dairy-free pecan pies that were SO good!!! We enjoyed tea in my new glass teapot as well as a big pot of Darjeeling under the new Christmas tea cozy.

The afternoon passed quickly and after our friends left there was food to prep for evening fellowship at church and just enough time to sit down for another cup of tea and paste a few decorations into my next journal.

Back to church for the evening which also included the first of the month fellowship meal. It is always nice to have that extra time to visit with friends.
