Follow up, winter doldrums battle stage 1

in Featured Events

Inspired by Marilyn’s comment to my post below I hung streamers in the kitchen and put out a plate of cookies (from the store, don’t worry, I didn’t bake) with a note ‘welcome to february’ for the kids to see when they walked in the door. Smile from cranky tween as soon as he saw it. Well, more a smirk, but I’ll take it these days.

And to those of you who say you don’t have time for these kinds of shenanigans, this took a total of five minutes. Luckily I hide my left over party supplies from my husband who would be likely to throw them out. See how valuable?! Geez.
