...at the Curry house. I finally took down Christmas. This pile has been sitting next to our front door for a couple of days now....I just couldn't get motivated.
Probably because I will miss my sweet little pieces of holiday happiness, like my little reindeer - this was my moms when I was little - and I was the lucky one who ended up with it when mom didn't want it anymore. I love it. It is my FAVORITE!
And I love my snowmen - like this one.
I even thought about keeping them up for a month or so - but then I would have to haul out the holiday boxes again to pack them away. So I will move right into Valentine's decorating. Which is fun too.
Tomorrow we are all back to school. I have so enjoyed the lazy - schedule free days - but I do love my job! Truly LOVE it. I still can't believe how lucky I got in getting this job. It is a such a treat every day! And I miss those little ones. They are just so sweet! And by the way - they SPOILED me this Christmas - like crazy spoiled. When I went in Monday to help get the school cleaned up - my boss showed an amazing pile of loot. Check this out:
I could hardly believe it! I feel so blessed! (not pictured in the most scrumptious loaf of bread I have ever eaten!!! :) It was a cinnamon swirl bread from the FarmHouse - you must go get a loaf)
Anywho...as I said Christmas is over and my house is getting a good cleaning - 4 rooms down - 6 to go. (Purging is a good thing. I have a HUGE pile of scrappy goods that I am getting rid of - feels good I had soooooo much stuff that I have had for years - thinking I just might use it - this was the year to pass it on to someone else.) Guess the other 6 rooms will get spread out over the next week - the 4 rooms I did have taken me two days. :)
In creative news I did get my heart gussied up - I think it is looking cute:
What do you think??? Should I leave it as is or does it need something more?? Wings would be divine (that's a great word) we'll see. Made anything new lately??? I would love to see - just let me know where to look.
Hope you are all having a wonderful day my friends!! Visit with you later....
by the way - we just a got a call from the superintendent - school has been canceled for tomorrow - so one more lazy schedule free day spent doing whatever we want - under 8 inches of new snow (that is on top of the 18 inches we already have). Bop it might be fun - and connect four - and scrapbooking and I really want to paint - and make sculpey clay doo-dads with Xander - only one day though. Think I can fit it all in....stay safe and warm dear friends!
