Ta Da!

I did it! I got the Christmas decorations down before Valentines Day!

Don't ask about the large containers sitting on the dining room table, "Nothing to see here, move on!"

Christmas lights are still on the house gutters. Frank's job, since I am deathly afraid of heights but I did get the yard lights pulled up. Frank is back to 10 hour days, six days a week at work, so lights might be up until Easter or, I just might try to conquer my fear cowardly-ways, pull out the 14 foot ladder and have a go at it myself. (Been nice knowing you all if I tumble off.)

Sun is shining today....for the moment. May have to take my granddaughter out for a walk after we record a couple of songs on some new App she discovered yesterday. We are going to lip-sink some tunes and try to be funny yet cool. Being cool? It might be easier for me to climb the ladder! She knows the lyrics to every single song and I know the last word of every other sentence in a third of the songs. Yup, I am definitely Cool-challenged.



So, Thursday's chores. Laundry, ran out of jeans and it's way too cold for capris and way way to embarrassing for 15 year old granddaughter too be seen with Nana in baggy sweats! Too bad Manhattan  Bagel doesn't have a drive thru....damn them!

Okay, laundry, lip-sink, Dutch Bros (coffee/me, strawberry-vanilla Rebel/her), bagels, and then maybe a walk. Hmm, maybe a walk tomorrow and Netflix marathon today.

I feel a conference coming on!

    1. Some of mine is in plastic containers but some containers are still on the dining room table. Maybe tomorrow I'll take them out to garage or maybe not. I'm taking Tolle's advice and living in the now. Now told me to get online!

  2. This year we took the Christmas decorations down pretty early because our home is up for sale. I usually like having them around for a good part of January, an otherwise pretty dull month.

    I dunno...but you sound like a pretty cool grandma to me :)

    1. You're moving! Staying in same area? Moving to new area? Going to reinvent yourselves and become CIA agents in the Ukraine? Tired of plowing and moving into town?

      I'm glad you think I'm a cool grandma but let's not poll my grandkids!

  3. Usually we do our decorations New Year's Day. We left the lights on until the 12th. Miss them!

    1. I envy your propensity for organization and tradition! I'm a little challenged in scheduling and have lots and lots of help in the house for leaving things where they don't belong!

  4. I left my Christmas tree up until June one year. I'm not proud of it, but it's a fact.

    1. I did leave mine up until the week before Easter one year. At first I was embarrassed and then it became amusing. Finally, the decorations were in the way of the Easter eggs and bunnies and baskets, so I folded and put them away. Sometimes I fail at anarchy!
