Outoor Wednesday and the Snow!

Last week we had a little snow, and got a snow day out of it.  I took these off the porch...didn't want to put the boots etc on and get out in it!

Thank goodness the rental property is empty, it needs some major foundation work!

After Christmas Confessions

I did not decorate for Christmas this year.  There, I said it.  I don't know why I didn't...I just never got around to it.  I did make individual handmade tags for everyone on one gift...that took an incredible amount of time and made an incredible mess!  I'll start that about July next year!

I did hang my Santa Face.  One of my daughters thinks this is a little creepy.  The other one thinks its not Christmas if he is not hanging up somewhere.  He is a plaster Santa face that a little old lady who lived next door to us when I was in jr. high gave to me.  I just liked him and she liked that.  I have had him ever since, and that was 46 years ago.
Here he is in his place...

I didn't put up a tree either.  How bad is that?  I just decorated this little tree that sits in the corner of my dining area all the time.  I decorate it for Christmas, Easter, July 4th and Halloween/ actually has lights on it so its cute when they are lit...but this was it for the tree...

Now for news...I think I'll try a food blog..a learning experience for sure.  I need to learn more about cooking so it may turn out to be a "OOPS, don't do that!" kind of thing.  It will link here so check back later!

Happy New Year...
