I would like to be doing a post right now about a wonderful redo/transformation going on in my home right now, but that is NOT going to happen. Believe me - I have many projects that need to be done, but they will remain on the "back burner" for now. After 3 days of house quests that left out today, I have done well to get the place back in order. The tree is down and everything is ready to be taken upstairs to storage. Spent this afternoon putting "things" back in place, vacuuming, dusting, etc. Every year when I go thru this same routine, I say I am going to do things differently next year - then next year rolls around and is the same "old song".
OK - On to other business.
Thanks a Zillion: A serious "Thank You" for all the very nice comments about the necklaces I posted about in my last post "Favorite Projects 2010". I still have some emails to answer concerning that post and will do that within the next couple of days.
A Big Welcome: Welcome to the new "Readers" who have joined in. Just a warning - I have a tendency to ramble! :-D
After 3 Days: After 3 days of "the gang" being in and out, the sound of laughter, good times and children's voices it is now very quiet. Three days of eating the wrong foods, being afraid of stepping on the scales and very thankful I don't have to have blood tests done any time soon. Actually - I think I have done pretty good during this holiday season.
Even managed to have black eyed peas (in the form of Texas Caviar) for good luck, and greens (in the form of baby spinach) for money, on New year's day. Had some guests that said they did not like black eyed peas, but decided they were pretty good in Texas Caviar and scooped up with white corn tortilla chips. The baby spinach was not an issue since everyone liked salad. :-D
I am making new lists of things I need to accomplish in the near future, and took my old list and marked off some things that no longer seem important to me.
What do I plan to do the next couple of days?: A ton of bed and bath linens need to be washed, rest of the Christmas decor stored, upstairs cleaned, thank you cards written, etc., etc.
Definitely hope to play catchup on visiting blogs - I am so far behind.
I had planned to do a post for a giveaway for my first post of 2011, but due to everything else going on, it did not happen, but will be doing one in the very near future.
Have a great week!
