Christmas In June

Our house is hidden in the woods so we enjoy our icicle lights all year long. I don't have to worry about the neighbors and what they think. The lights are fun, they make a great night light and the lights make a great surprise for the grandkids. 

I've been going around the house gathering up stuff and putting it out of the way. I kid proofed my house when my children were small, but this house and the woods are not at all kid proof. I still have stuff to put away tomorrow before they get here.

Kristine brought some macaroon cookies home and they are so very, very good. I want another one! I love cocoanut. I guess I will have to settle for a piece of toast with honey. Or... some chocolate?

I was watching one of my favorite videos again today, a war time Dig For Victory film, that shows people planting gardens. 

 I got to thinking about different ways to start and then set out seedlings (I am saving toilet paper tubes to use to set seeds) and I thought about using egg shells. I guess everyone knows about this but me. I found this eHow site that explains how to use egg shells to set seeds.

It is supposed to be in the 80's tomorrow.

That's a good idea for seeds. I must remember it. Have fun with the grankids.

Thats pretty cool you can leave your x-mas lights on all year round cause they do make good nightlights :)

I've always felt that the all-white lights were perfectly appropriate all year long. ;-)

Thanks for the egg shell planter tips! What a cute idea. Although, I usually crumble up my egg shells and mix them with the chicken feed. I guess the girls wouldn't miss a FEW shells...

Oh those icicles will really be enjoyed but the kiddo's. They will enjoy running in the woods as much as we did on the farm...
Mmmm that looks so yummy...

I kept our lights up on our mantle for the same reason--But I changed to rope lights because of my husband (party pooper)--I still love the white-lights in the darkness, there's something so relaxing about it!! I hope you continue to enjoy the cookies, and your grandkids too!!
