Simple Sunday!

November 13, 2011 Leave a comment

My BFF Carla always posts a simple Sunday post.  I sometimes chuckle since our simple day or day rest always ends up being filled with things to do and work.  Mine today is being spent at work.  I do have a few things I’d like to get done or started though.  What does your Sunday look like? 

Here’s my list …

*put a roast/potatoes/carrots in the crock pot for dinner


*work on some sewing items – I’m behind on a few things I’ve promised to get done

*create my Christmas card & shopping list – figure out what I need to make/buy this year

*catch up on some TV from last week and watch the Walking Dead.  Yes I’m a dork but this show is great!

What do you normally do for Christmas gifts?  Do you spend lots at the stores for your loved ones, hand make as much as possible?  Give gifts in kinds to charity instead of commercial gifts?  I always give as much as I can to charity, and love the idea of doing this instead of gift exchanges since most of us already have SO much.  My bff Carla is hosting a blog give away with a twist.  You have the chance to win some amazing handmade items from her, but the twist is you have to donate to her World Vision donation fundraiser.  There is no set amount to donate, but every bit helps and she has already raised almost $600!! Check out her blog to see the gifts she has already been able to give.  It is truly amazing when people come together to help out those who are less fortunate! It really warms my heart!

I’ve noticed I’ve been getting quite a few hits on my blog lately … I’m not sure who is visiting, but if you do leave me a comment!  I love to get to know my readers and be able to check out your blogs too!  I’m thinking of doing a blog contest or giveaway soon to gear up for the holiday season!  Have a great Sunday!
