A Little House Work

We have been having some beautiful weather ~ like nearly 80 on the last day of January!

So, I decided to do a little housework.  On the "little" house.  And because, frankly, I just wanted to be outside, and I didn't really want to work on the "big" house.  I don't know where to start in there!

This is just the right size. 

I put up a few Valentine's decorations.  Love that heart window.  I also left on the Christmas lights.  They are red and white so they will be perfect now, and they will be great for all of the patriotic holidays too.  So I don't think they will be coming down until they don't work anymore.

I have given up on real flowers in the window boxes.  I did it the first few seasons but I just don't go out and water them every day and they always looked so terrible.

Inside I whipped up a new tablecloth with my trusty glue gun.

I swept out all of the leaves that got tracked in and washed the floor and cupboard.

I tidied up the pantry and put all of the food back in the cupboard.  I have a lot of wooden food ~ lots of little pieces ~ and it is a favorite activity to dump it all in a bowl and leave it for Grandma to sort and put back in the containers.  {because I am a little OCD :-) }

Whew, that's a big job done.  If only the rest of my house was that easy!
