December Daily 2014 {Day 11}

Hi everyone!

December Daily has been on pause here. Sadly, my grandmother, my dad's mom, passed away unexpectedly last week.

I am not sure if or how I am going to include the wake and funeral in December Daily. It seems morbid to include it, but weird not to, you know?

I'm going to think about it a while before I make a decision. But I did work on a few other pages this morning. Some I can't include here because some have presents in them and I don't want anyone to see them yet!

"It was supposed to be a relaxing night at home. We were baking Hershey kiss cookies, and making kale + pancetta pasta. Shouldn't have been a very big deal at all.
Until the pancetta starting smoking, not badly, not unlike how pancetta or bacon or anything gets a little smoky when you cook it. But it set off the smoke detector. Which set off the screeching + flashing fire alarm in the apartment.
We were able to get the smoke detectors to stop within minutes by opening the windows and turning on the fan.
But the fire alarm? That went off for an hour. We stood outside in the snow and waited for someone from the apartment complex's maintenance team to come and turn off the alarm!
We ended up ordering sandwiches + the world's biggest calzone for dinner!"

Well I'm off to school now, but I'll have a few more pages tomorrow! What are you up to today?

Katie, I'm so sorry for your loss. I know you'll be documenting the events in Project Life, so maybe not in December Daily?

I am so sorry for the loss of your grandmother Katie.
I know what you mean about if it should be included in your DD. My dad fell and broke his hip during the holidays. I did include our hospital visits as it did happen at that time.
Maybe reflect on how loved she was.
I just read Becky;'s idea, that is a good point as well

I had a little (okay big) chucke at your smoke alarm, standing outside episode ;)

Katie I am so sorry for the loss of your grandmother.
I remember my grandma passing away close to Christmas a few years ago and it definitely affected the holidays.
Thinking of you.
Happy New Year :)
