The coffee is brewing and I am sitting here in my pajamas ready to catch up on some blog reading.
One of my favorite parts of the day.
Thanks for joining me for Virtual Coffee on this cold winter morning.
Did you notice that today is 1/11/11? Kinda cool, huh?
If you came here for coffee this morning I would show off my little office because I finally got
it cleaned and organized yesterday. It was a real mess. I mean embarrassingly so, like the door was kept shut at all times. If you look at my previous post ( Ten on Ten) my little office is the tiny room off of our dining room. It's a small room that my neighbors say was added on as maid's quarters in the 60's.
Which is fitting because I'm pretty much the maid around here so
it should be my little room. It feels so good to go through drawers and piles of junk
and purge, doesn't it? I have a lot more to do but it feels really good to at least get started.
If we were really meeting for coffee this morning I would tell you that I just love my little twinkly lights and I can't make myself take them down after Christmas. So I left the white ones up on the mantle in
the living room. I like the clutter to be gone after the holidays but oh, I do miss the lights.
We were so hoping for a snow day today but we didn't get it. We did get a couple inches of snow though and we are supposed to get more throughout the day. Because of that Eric did not go to work (he commutes) which means I did not have to take the little man to school. Hooray. We are keeping our fingers crossed for lots of snow and a good old-fashioned SNOW IN. As in no one goes to work or school or anywhere. That sounds wonderful to me.
I printed these off for the kids to make after school today. How cute is that, anyway? I love finding cool free downloads online. We printed them on regular paper as opposed to card stock, which probably would have been better so I' think we'll glue the little people onto Popsicle sticks. Miss Charlotte is so excited because she says the people are from France. She has a fascination with France, the Eiffel Tower and wants to ride on a boat down the Seine River. Ummm...yeah, she's four -years old.
If we were really meeting for coffee today I would tell you that it's time for me to put on our French Playground Cd, per Charlotte's request, and go get ourselves bundled up and ready to go. She has been asking if we can make Valentine's and hang up some heart decorations around the house. At first I told her January is too early for all that but then I thought....why wait? So we're off to Hobby Lobby
to stock up on some craft supplies. Bring on the red and pink... the doilies and the glitter.
Crafting and French music and organizing and cleaning and white twinkly lights and coffee....
It's all just so lovely.
So I'm also linking up with Heather's Life Made Lovely Monday, a day late, today because
I have missed participating it that lately. Hope you all have a wonderful Tuesday.
Thanks so much for stopping by for coffee!
