Reheated cup of coffee, steaming. Open bag of chocolate chips (naughty, naughty). Nikon D40 memory card. Heating pad. Time to blog.
Then I’m sprinting upstairs, taking the steps two at a time as quietly as I can. My 6 month-old is screaming, less than 1/2 an hour into his nap. I must try to get him resettled before he wakes my 21 month-old, who is sleeping peacefully across the hall.
And here I am again. This will be a short post, and I thought you deserved to know why.
I got the big end of the stick on this one, folks. Burying my face in the sweetly perfumed downy hair of my snoozing son, I remembered with delight: Blogging comes second to my offspring. I love them so much.
And my computer doesn’t giggle or smell nice.
Today’s post, therefore, is simply a challenge: Put me to shame! It’s time for the January Centerpiece Challenge. 🙂
Go outside and find the fixin’s for an amazing winter centerpiece. Mine is going to be pretty sweet. However, I feel a little ashamed… One of the key elements of my piece doesn’t seem like it should be outside during winter.
But it was.
Yours will be cooler – so please, send me an email with a photo of your creation! I will post mine (and yours) next Tuesday, when you can kick me up and down the street with your creativity.
I have now consumed an inordinate amount of chocolate chips and must go do housework to burn off the calories. See you.
