Last Monday of 2009
Well, we are into our last week of 2009. The old year is slipping away and many of us are making plans for what we will do in the New Year.
I noticed that my throat was a bit "scratchy" last night, so I brought out the Vicks hoping to ward of the inevitable sore throat. No such luck, looks like a cold is in the works for me. I'm so very thankful however that it didn't strike until AFTER Christmas!
Hope all of you found pleasure in your Christmas. So nice to enjoy the company of loved ones, eat those wonderfully tasty foods and goodies, and maybe find a much wanted present under the tree as well. ;o)
I usually don't start putting the decorations away until after New Year's. Sort of nice to still turn on the lights and just sit with a warm cup of cocoa and enjoy them now that the hubbub is over.
But I know that task is waiting for me and I also want to do a bit of organizing as I put things away--always hoping to make it easier for next year. How and where do you gals store your wrapping paper and bows? I'm not totally happy with my way--some in a container that slides under the bed and some in a drawer in the guest room. Do you keep Christmas bags and papers separate from the ones you use for birthdays and other occassions? And how do you store your bows and ribbons?
I ran across the cutest design for New Year's that I hoped to get painted for all of us to enjoy--was going to run down to Lowe's for some thinner wood today. We'll see how I feel later after my coffee and taking it easy for awhile. Would sort of be nice to have something to paint while I stay inside and "doctor up" to get over this sore throat/cold thingy.
So what are all of you up to this week?
