I have not yet put away my Christmas decorations. I unfortunately did not
inherit my Mom's efficiency. At first I told myself that I would wait until
after Epiphany to pack everything up. Well, Epiphany came on Tuesday of
this week and the decorations are still here. I have no excuse now. It's a
rainy day and a perfect day to take everything down and box it up. So why
am I dragging my feet?
Excuses, excuses. I can hear those words from my Mom in my head.
I suppose that if she has interrupted her heavenly bliss to send me this
message I better get with the program :-)
But first ~ I have something to show you and something to tell you. It's all about
this darling ceramic basket. It came from Home Goods. You may not believe
this, but I had never been to Home Goods until the weekend before Christmas.
We did not have a Home Goods in Boise, Idaho. How did I live before???
So the Saturday before Christmas David suggested that we head towards
Houston for the day for some fun. Houston is a couple of hours away. Now
in the great state of Texas a two hour drive is nothing, and away we happily
went for a day of eye candy and good food.
We were in Sugar Land, Texas ~ just west of Houston and conveniently
located on the highway we take to get there. We had stopped for lunch
and David noticed a Home Goods store. He asked me if I wanted to go
there and said to take my time. Well I did and what fun I had. I quickly
realized what I had been missing all these years. I found this cute little
basket and a sweet little platter too that I will show you on another day.
So that's all for today. I better get busy on the task at hand because
I can easily find a million excuses to get out of it.
See you back here tomorrow!
Big Texas Hugs,
Susan and Bentley
