Back into the Box

Easter's over, so I guess I'd better pack up the decorations. I am in a very good mood, because I lost only a couple of plastic eggs (to the puppy's sharp little teeth) and chipped a deviled egg platter (between you, me, and the lamppost, the chip was actually my fault for not wrapping it better last year—it shifted in storage and smacked up against something.)

I am truly and sincerely amazed that my little paper chicks and sheep survived the twins' grubby paws. This was the first year I put them out, and miraculously, the girls obeyed my commands to look and not touch.

Can you believe the humans did not kill us?

Shhh! Stay quiet and maybe those kids won't notice us . . . 

I try to keep my eyes open after any holiday, because that's when I find cute decor items sitting in the back of the store on a clearance table for 50% off. The other day I spent a whopping $5.50 for a carton of beautifully painted eggs that I can incorporate into my Easter decorations next year and a little welcome sign that I can put up now.

Spring? What spring? We've still got piles and piles of snow in the yard . . . 

Dinner last night: sour cream enchiladas, corn

Exactly three years ago:

So when DO daffodils bloom in your area?

Those chicks and sheep are just darling. I don't know if I would be brave enough to ever put them out. They look so fragile.

Those chicks and sheep are just too cute. I want some!
