OK. I said today would be busy and it was. I got up after sleeping in to 8. After a great breakfast I hit the day to do list. Christmas is finally over and I was able to take down the outside icicle lights. This is no small feet as they needed to get down before we were the last to have them up.

I was able to make the several trips up and down the ladder with out any disastrous results. This may have seemed like no great feat but the you don't know me and ladders. It not that I fall off them a lot, it is just that I usually end up doing something not intended. This time I didn't ruin the shingles or mess up any landscape. OK ,there was on nasty branch that had to go as no matter how I positioned the ladder it stuck me in the back. Task one complete.

Then it was down to the church for some membership cleaning of the building. It wasn't bad but somebody designed this building as if they designed mice mazes.

After that task it was off to the car wash. I know many people are fighting cold and snow this time of year but this last week we had temperatures in the 80's & 90's. This just bakes the dirty films on to the car. Oh for a little less heat.

We also went to check out a store Karina told us about. yes it was 50+ miles away but it would be worth that trip. Sure 50 miles on the 5 freeway is a trip in paradise. We did find some items that did make the trip worth while. We took the more scenic road back.

We also found a good frozen Yogurt place and it was very good. Then we check out another furniture store with what was supposed to be good deals as they we going out of business. Well their stuff was terrible so we bought nothing. We also had to go to a wedding reception but that didn't happen.

WE did get a few things done. So to has been a success.

Here is the picture we got for the front room.
Karina we think this looks great...Thanks.

Lets just look at that baked on dirt as a reminder of how blessed you are to have such beautiful warm weather. I know deep down you really can't miss the cold freezing temps.
I like the picture. I am glad mom is a rebel and looked in the back for it when she wasn't supposed to =)
