How can it be February already? The past two weeks of snow day drama made January evaporate as quickly as the frost on the tree branches. Now here I stand looking into February with these tasks on my mind:
~ Prepare for my mother's arrival on February 13 (she is staying for two months which requires intense bedroom/closet/drawer/bathroom preparations)
~Valentine's Day prep for school parties and a dance for our middle schooler
~ Plan two birthday parties for my boys turning 11 and 12 this month (send invitations, buy gifts, cakes, make arrangements etc...)
~Prepare my own accommodations as I will move into the downstairs guest room for a while post knee-surgery
~Continue the "Great Purge" of closets and drawers to clear my mental clutter and make the family run smoothly without much help from me
~Stock up on groceries and freeze ahead meals to assist my mother
~Finish my One Little Word pages for January and start on February
~Include Ali's 31 Things Pages and 52 Lists in my OLW binder
Phew! Just writing this out is a bit of a relief for me. Now to make the time to get it all done in the next two weeks.
What does your February look like?
P.S. I am experimenting with allowing anonymous commenters since so many of my family and friends don't have on-line profiles and therefore cannot leave me a comment on my blog. We'll see if my SPAM goes up or if I am enough "off the radar" that this setting can work. I hope so!
Beautiful images! I'm worn out after reading your "to do" list...! Mine is kinda crazy too, yet, I'm finding I love a busy schedule..I stay more focused! Hope all goes well with your knee surgery!!ReplyDelete
Thanks Karen, I'm a little worn out myself and so far nothing is checked off that list!Delete
I just found your blog through your link at Amongst Lovely Things. I love the reflective tone of your posts and your photos are SOO beautiful! I'm trying to figure out where you might live that would be considered a "beach town" and yet get that much snow. Since I don't live in the U.S. and don't follow the news, I'm not sure how far south Leon went. North Carolina? Georgia? Anyway, your photos certainly capture the beauty of the cold.ReplyDelete
I love your blog Misty. I have snooped it for awhile now. I am drawn to your faith and the warmth you have towards your homemaking and mothering!ReplyDelete
