Yeah, my Christmas tree is down with all the ornaments packed away, even the tree is bundled in a zip-up container. Dropped by Trader Joe's yesterday and picked up a couple of wine boxes with their dividers still intact....voila my ornament containers. Worked perfectly.
I pluck the dried hydrangeas from my bushes to adorn the Christmas tree, and when Christmas is over I have a huge pile of hydrangeas that are so dry to the touch they break apart instantly. I never like throwing these away, they have given beauty since they begin their blooms in mid summer and add their continuing beauty all thru the holidays.
Tonight is bookclub, wondering how all liked our book, The Husband's Secret? It certainly held my interest. I have started reading Kate Atkinson's Life After Life and was a bit confused for the first few chapters. I had downloaded the book on my Kindle when it first came out several months ago and forgot about it until I strolled thru and spied it, so I had forgotten the premise of the book. That's what happens when you download, you don't get that book flap to give you a little start-up as to what the book is all about. Now that I am in tune as to the gist of the book I am enjoying it, but I will admit a little confusion at the start. Reading anything good? I am always up for a good read. That is on my 14 in 2014...read more.
Gotta go, still a little straightening remaining and my grandgirl is joining me for dinner and bookclub. I think it's a hoot that Bailey comes to my old ladies (oops I shouldn't say that) book group, but definitely in a different age bracket than my Bailey.
