How I Spent 01-01-10
January 1, 2010 started out like most of my days. I fixed a cup of hot chocolate and sat down in front of my computer to catch up with all my blogger friends.
AD turned on the Rose Parade in the other room. I listened for awhile and when I heard them talking about this float I had to go check it out.
This particular float set a new Guinness World Record for being the longest float on a single chassis. The screen shows 113+ feet, the commentator said the actual length was 113 ft 8 inches.
The float had these adorable snowboarding dogs on it.
How cute is that!
This was the only little girl in the bunch.
I mentioned some upcoming projects in an earlier post this week. This is our old wine rack - the one that holds bottles of wine that AD's mother gives us. AD doesn't care for wine so we don't actually drink the wine, we just display it.
Here's the old rack with the tray removed. The glass rack on the top was part of the project. It needed to be removed so that
AD could install it in our new wine rack that his mother gave him. The new one didn't have a glass rack and the rack from the old one was perfect.
The new wine rack also has some storage underneath that is perfect for me to store tablecloths in. I'm thinking I want to add a spring curtain rod with a pretty little curtain to hide the tablecloths so I'll be on the lookout for the perfect curtain.
We recycled the rest of the old wine rack making it a stand for our second computer that is in the bedroom. The racks for the wine bottles will be used to hold telephone books, papers, magazines, etc.
Part of the day was spent gathering Christmas decorations to be packed away. It will take me a few days to finish that.
And there's always laundry to do. I don't know how two people can go through so many towels!
AD's sister gave me a small poinsettia at Thanksgiving. She doesn't know I am notorious for killing these beautiful plants. It's amazing that this little one has lasted as long as it has. It must be strong-willed. I hope so because I really do love poinsettias. Maybe that's my problem. I love them too much!
Anyway, I watered this one today and let the excess water drain in the sink before I put it back in the decorative pot. Someone told me one of my problems might be watering my previous plants too much. Do you think that's possible?
I really am going to try and keep this one alive. I'll let you know how it goes.
How did you spend your first day of the new decade?
