Well, today was the day to take the Christmas decorations down. The kitchen sounded hollow somehow and the rest of the house seemed so bare. I miss my tree . The space where it spent the last month shining brightly was so empty .
So it was time to rearrange things a bit and fill that void with something else that would make me smile and so this is what I moved there I set up my guitar and music stand there and it’s time to get back to practicing. I did learn to play Jingle Bells before the holidays but not well enough for me to play it for anyone but myself and the cat. Oh, and does it surprise anyone who knows me that the first song I can play all the way through was a Christmas tune? Probably not.
Time to get the Valentine’s Day decorations out and then, quickly right after that, there will be the St. Patrick’s Day green making an appearance. However, if you take a look around, you will see that Christmas hasn’t really gone completely away. 🙂 I left a few reminders around
These cute little guys are actually keeping track of how many months to go until Christmas, not days right now. And if you look closely, you will see a few holiday friends still hanging around in this little cabinet
After un-decorating, a whole lot of vacuuming, rearranging and having some delish onion soup for dinner, I did get to spend some time in my sewing room organizing my fabric and working on a couple small projects. Tomorrow is going to be a rainy chilly day, so I will be spending a lot of time with my sewing machines. I have a few projects on my to do list and I have been looking through quilt books and magazines and finding more things that are going to be going on my “I want to make that” list.
Have a good week everyone. See you soon.
