Warning...Warning....This starts out as a kind of a whining, nagging, miserable post. Read on if you want to hear my complaining.
Seems like a wee bit of cabin fever taking hold this early morning.
Time to move on to another subject. Taking down Christmas...I'm going to start this weekend. I am pleased with how the house looks right now, so I'll be putting what is out now...in bins and marking them 2013 decor.Much easier next year...than taking things out of many bins. I talked to a friend just last night and when I heard about her job ahead...I felt relieved. We laughed when we talked about how I was going to get the tree down to the basement. I told her that I was going to take the tree apart...it is in two pieces and tie a rope around it and lower it over the railing that goes downstairs. I really think that this would work. Then I can put it in the bag and store it. It's only a 4' tree.No danger of me falling down stairs. I use the cloth grocery store bags to take the rest of the decorations down.One bag at a time...holding on to the railing.
It's such a pain to grow old...and not be able to do what you did in the past years. Sometimes my mind is working so hard to figure out a way to accomplish things... that I did in the past.
I have been reading posts from other blogs and it seems to me that winter is getting the best of many. It's a long time till spring...winter just started. We have to think of new things to do while inside. Claudia
http://mockingbirdhillcottage.com/ and her blogging friend are starting a Christmas Critter Felt Along. Each week we will make two simple felt ornaments for our Christmas trees. That way we will have 24 new ornaments. I have a little woodland tree that I would like some ornaments for. I'd like to keep it up all year. Its in the breakfast nook... right next to the sliding glass doors.I once thought of making little felt birds...so this is perfect for me. If you have cabin fever...go over and check out Claudia's post from yesterday. These little critters look easy to make and are so cute.
Guess I better get going. Joe's therapist will be here soon and I have things to do in the kitchen.
Have a nice snowy day... if you are in the north. If you are in the south....I'm green with envy.
