I'm so glad our trees do not look like this, although it is very, VERY cold. I guess I enjoyed our 70* weather for too long. I am not ready for 23* as it was when I was driving home from church yesterday.
I woke up yesterday feeling wonderful and full of energy. I still didn't get everything done that I wanted to, but at least it was better. I actually got a load of dishes AND a load of wash done. I know that doesn't sound like a lot, but I haven't had the energy to do that in a long time.
In the afternoon I met Joe A and Genny at church and we undecorated everything. I think that may be a bigger job than decorating. It was a puzzle to figure out what boxes each item went into. And a jigsaw puzzle to fit the nativity pieces into the right spaces in the boxes. But it is all put away now. I got white tableclothes and blue centerpieces for the tables for Fellowship Time.
I also put candles in the windows. It looks very colonial to me. The Bible Fellowship churches, coming from the Mennonites, are very plain. There are no stained glass windows or ornamentation. So all of our decorations are very plain also. I like that.
Although I didn't get a 4 p.m. photo, I did get a 5 p.m. one. The sky was still beautiful.
A month ago it was pitch black at 5 p.m. so this is very encouraging that Spring is on its way.
I am hoping to be home most of today and get to work on the house. It is so messed up and still has Christmas stuff around. I really want to get things under control. I'm alone most of the time since Joe sleeps so much, so that gives me plenty of time to get things done. I'm figuring this will be the hardest month because I need to get myself into a routine. It hasn't happened yet.
I started on the coloring books that Joe gave me for my birthday. More came in the mail so now I have four to do. Wonderful! Here is the first picture I finished. I hope to show you more in the future.
So now I need to start my day. A shower awaits and then there are cats to feed, floors to mop, wash to do and dishes to wash. I'm busier than when I went to work at the library! See you later.
