That little nursery rhyme isn't something you hear very often in Southern California, bring it on is what we say!
It has rained for a few days each week for about 3 weeks now. That makes all of our dry hillsides turn into gorgeous green works of art.
And of course with the rain comes some beautiful snow capped mountains.
This week I am working on taking down the Christmas decoration. I have a few bins packed already and the stuffed animals are all packed away too. We are also changing over into some new bins that will stack better. (I also ran to the show on Tuesday so I didn't accomplish anything)
So the only room that is still a big mess is the dining room. The dining room table is my gathering place for random items. Of course the two big trees are still up and I hope to work on them over the weekend.
My plan is to separate the ornaments into "Can't Live Without" and "Time To Let Go." I need to downsize so this will be the start of it. It won't be easy. I want to sell our two 6 1/2 ft. trees that are now three years old and get a new 7 1/2 tree.
This is the tree that I hope to get. It is a Granton Spruce and I love it. My ornaments need to be woven in and out of the tree so this one should allow space for that. My older 9 ft tree was similar to this one.
Since we no longer get plastic bags at the grocery store, which we used for our recycling each week, we needed to set up a bin for that. Amber left this trash can behind and it is working out perfectly for us.
Just so you know I normally bring bags into the store for our groceries. I've been doing that for many years now but there was something about Target bags that worked really well for us to use for our recycling.
Amber sent this adorable picture of Charlie with his boots on in the Montana snow. I don't know why he doesn't have his sweater on!!
I gave Skye a bath yesterday and when I do that I always wash her beds and blankets too. Since she didn't have a place to sleep I invited her up on the sofa and made her snug as a bug in a rug......
So that's what is going on in my neck of the woods......
