Here it is, the third week in January! That is hard to believe. It seems like just yesterday we were all in a hustle mode trying to get Christmas ready, plan menus, and figure out where everyone was going to sleep. Our four children are spread across a 350-mile-range, so holidays are always a production, and as more grandchildren are added, the production gets larger. Now, it’s always a great time once we get it figured out, but with so many families there always seems to be a glitch or two. I was still finding a few stray Christmas things this week as I was thinking that I really don’t have many decorations for Valentines Day.
That holiday always seems to slip past as we plan for Easter and the spring. Spring is a big deal here in the Midwest, even if we happen to be having a mild winter.
There are some things that I am rather compulsive about….here is where Rachel is laughing….and one of them is changing out my kitchen towels. I change my towels with the holiday or season. It is now time to tuck away the Christmas towels and switch over to something else. Now I do have a few snowmen and generally winter-themed hand towels, but no Valentines and very few Easter towels.
I like to hang them from my drawer handles next to the sink. They take a beating and really need to be replaced frequently. There are two methods of making hanging towels, both of which are pretty easy.
