Almost Spring!

Lengthening days really cheer me up!  Today is sunny, too, even though we got some more rain in the night.  Yay!

I've finally gotten together a box of books featuring pictures more than words, to send to my SIL's memory care facility.  They're trying to improve the house library with books that might be more enjoyable for the residents.  The box weighs a ton, though.

This week's wedding-related project is hunting for good disposable / compostable plates, cutlery, cups, etc.  We're going with plastic wineglasses, and hard plastics are recyclable in our city.  Win win win!

I am apparently way too excited about this wedding.  Got carried away in my mind about table decor, yesterday.  Table decor!  Because actually, that is just so fun.  (Now my pop-up ads assume that I am a huge personal fan of organza and tulle, whereas I was just thinking about how to add a little gold "pop" to the tables -- because when asked about colors, the bride mentioned she likes gold.)  It is time to find a hobby or something.   Craft deprived, that's what's going on....

What excitement is going on with you and yours?

Oops, another week popped up.

Thankfully, got a lot of sleep last night, and am nearly normalish.

Hope those with maladies are recovering!

We just got over yet another storm on Saturday, ran into rain in the city we visited, and the skies opened with pouring rain in the night.  No drought here, not any more!

Need to start organizing my tax stuff this week.  That should certainly brighten things up (not).

What's new with you?

Hearts and Chocolates for Everyone!!

Happy Valentine's week, pixies!

Hubby and I don't generally make a fuss about Valentine's Day.

How about you?

In other news, two days ago I left the light inside the car on and now it won't start. Rats.
