This year we said goodbye to Grandpa Jones. He was my sister’s and my last grandparent, so the holidays have felt a little different this time around.
So while over the past couple of seasons I’ve DIY’ed a new Christmas tree theme, this year we went with the theme of “Classic Christmas.” Instead of paper birds that have been stapled, folded and glued to perfection the tree this year is adorned with ornaments that have been touched, hung and admired for so many years.
It’s a different, purer type of perfection. A classic perfection.
A Classic Christmas.

I think that someone’s New Year’s resolution was to get back at the gym. That AND to make bold moves in 2014.
Well, this person is obviously tackling both at the same time.
Yes, to put your shoes in the cubby despite the posted “request” is bold. To place them in the cubby right under the sign? BOLDER.
Congrats on your successful resolution.

Over Labor Day weekend I took my first trip to Door County, Wisconsin for a good friend’s wedding. And being my first trip, the day after the wedding I thought I’d do a little mini sightseeing before heading home. So I grabbed the official “Pocket Dictionary to the Peninsula” out of the hotel’s lobby for a little, well, guidance.
Now, I know that my pockets happen to be on some shorts that are a little shorter than others. But by no means were my pockets tiny.
Therefore, I’ve decided the pocket guide is just a figure of speech, not to be taken literally.
As I could literally not get this in my pocket.
Oh well. I enjoyed my local coffee and scone just the same.

On a recent over-night stay, the hotel had this placard posted outside the bathroom door.
So my question is this: Did they post this when they installed the latest in silent fan technology … or do they simply post this by everything that doesn’t work?
Regardless, I’m going to start using this idea myself. Instead of fixing things, I’ll just place signs next to them explaining that they really are working … you just can’t tell.
For example, instead of replacing burnt out light bulbs: “Lamp very very dim when turned on. You may not see light emitting.”
