Happy Day After Christmas!

I have been busy as a bee this morning taking down decorations, washing clothes, sheets, changing out the bed linens and making the house shine. I have taken down the trees, mantle decorations, Bedford Falls Village and put away all of the boxes into the store room. I made a quick dash to Walmart to buy a few things for next Christmas. I like to buy napkins, styro plates and stock up on cups the day after when everything is half off, then I pack them away with my decorations. There they will be safe until next season.
Thoughts of the new year are running through my head. I like to organize and this time of year, wonderful things like file folders and pens are on sale. I usually go through all of my filing system and toss out dated things I no longer need. I get to start using my new Franklin Covey refill, and update my address book. I make my medical and dentist appointments, start thinking about my new year resolutions ( which I seldom reach) and start planning a spring garden. I have an enclosed back porch that I want to make more user friendly. Adding some plants and new chairs so that I can enjoy the fresh air. I have alot of updates this year. Donnie and I are still settling into married life and trying to make this 'our home' . We need to paint the rooms and hang pictures. I have gotten off track over the holidays, so now is the time to start freshening up the cottage and making it just cute as pie!
Have a happy day.

You have been a busy girl today. I never put Christmas decorations out because as soon as they go up I'm ready to pack them away.

I did go out shopping today. I brought home 3 towel racks for the kitchen and none were right. I'm going to return them and John's going to make me some.

Today I was thinking about my flower garden and picked up a book. Well blog later.

I think I'm getting the hang of Blogger. I've been playing around with the backgrounds etc. I like it.

Have a wonderful weekend!
