Someone in one of my planner groups was showing how she incorporates some scrapbooking into her planner, and mentioned a project that she was doing through Ali Edwards‘ blog called December Daily. I checked out the site, and while I haven’t been into scrapbooking so much in a number of years (it takes a LOT of time and dedication), I thought that the idea of recording how I spend these Advent days leading up to Christmas to be an intriguing one. So, I’m going to attempt to do that here.
I had so many ideas for what my main picture was going to be for the day. I was initially thinking that it would be a photo of an exam room, as I had an appointment with my Neurologist today (and a half day at work!). However, the doctor takes you back to the exam room and I felt a little weird asking him if I could take a photo.
Then, I thought – maybe I can take a photo of the library? After all, I have to *renew* my library card, so it’s a little more than just a normal visit. And I do intend on spending less time binge watching Netflix and more time reading books this season.
But, ultimately, I picked something a little more … cozy.
I made soup!
I love soup and I had some veggies to use up. I like how it doesn’t take a ton of time and effort, and then I can put it in some plastic containers and have dinner ready for almost an entire week.
In this soup, I baked a chicken breast and shredded it, adding it to some chicken stock, then chopped up some fingerling carrots, ripped up a bunch of kale, and added a can of chick peas. I decided against putting some kind of noodle or rice in. I suppose I can always add that later, but I probably don’t need the extra carbs anyway.
This is my “Day One” for my December Daily project. Something a little warm and cozy that I enjoy a bit more in the winter months. Soup and reading a book at the dinner table. 🙂
How are you spending your December?
