It has been so nice enjoying the cold and sunny fall days we have been blessed with this week. My kids have thoroughly enjoyed their time outside, and I will be honest and admit that I have enjoyed it too. My house was clean for almost an entire hour today while they were outside building a fort and climbing through the lilac bushes. And what a way to end the day...right now I am snuggled up next the the fireplace in my jammies. This is the life.
In the middle of my cleaning marathon, I managed to sneak a few minutes to take pictures of these hydrangea stems I cut yesterday. I saw them while I was at my mom's house and decided that someday soon I might like a dried hydrangea wreath. That requires patience on my part though, as I have to hang them upside down and wait for them to dry. And since I possess little patience for that sort of thing, I am trying my luck at just letting them dry upright in this enamel bucket.
Oh yes, and I found a treasure today...
My mom sold her house and only has a month to get packed up and moved, so I have been receiving boxes of goodies from her. There are advantages and disadvantages to this. Disadvantage -I am getting bags and boxes full of my childhood crappe. It is all stuff that I can't part with (such as baby book baby shoes stuff my grandma made me etc.), but I am already considered a hoarder in 46 states so taking on more is just insane. Advantage-I found a lovely little blue jar mixed in with a box full of old hazel atlas jars. I was very excited to unwrap this one and add it to my collection.
That sums up my day : ) Cleaning, a touch of decorating, going through boxes and bags, and finding gold in the form of a coveted blue jar. Tomorrow is my little guy's first day of show and tell at school. He is taking in a pumpkin that was given to him by Bill and Cathy aka ma and pa from the Amazing Race. I know he is going to have a blast getting to stand up in front of his class and talk. That is just his type of thing. He is such a social little guy. I love him so much.
Enjoy your evening and thanks a million for reading!
