It snowed practically all day Saturday and Sunday - big, fluffy snowflakes. There was not an extravagant amount of accumulation, but it was just a peaceful snow; the kind that makes for such a beautiful snowfall, the kind that just attracts your eyes to it, the kind that makes you wants to stand there and just watch it - because it's beautiful - because it's one of God's wonders. I found my eyes drifting to look out the window constantly, and I found myself smiling each and every time.
Tom had to run errands Saturday, and he came home with a minion. One can never have too many minions!
Saturday, while shopping, we found a Bee-Do minion, and Tom said of course, we had to buy it (and I wasn't going to argue with him!) (Again, refer to the above statement - one can never have too many minions!) XDD
Friday, both boys went with Tom and me to see the new Cinderella movie. It has to be the sparkliest movie in the history of sparkles. Seriously! I wonder how much glitter went into the making of that movie. I was not that little girl that adored the Disney Princesses as a little girl. I read the stories, yes, but that was just it - I read the stories. I was more into books and such. I think my favorite was Beauty and Beast for that reason - Belle liked books. I feel like this new Cinderella movie may have been made specifically for me though. All of the sparklies . . . and the . . . butterflies . . .…and the blue. I thought Maleficent would be my favorite movie for quite a while with the way they sparkled up the Moors at night, but it looks like I will be counting down the days until I can get Cinderella on Blu-ray. Definitely my new favorite movie!
Saturday, we also found a new Baby Groot at Barnes and Noble to add to my Corner.
Sometimes, having hoarding tendencies is not necessarily a bad thing. Tom still had a box of 45 records from the late 1980s, and we spent Saturday afternoon listening to them on the record player. It was great! It was like going down memory lane on roller skates for me!
And sometimes, it's nice to be able to bring part of your heritage and add it to your new home. Since our trip to Georgia, I have been able to incorporate my Japanese doll that came over from Japan with my grandma on my dad's side of the family in the 1950s to our new home here in Maine, and also my hope chest that belonged to my great-grandmother on my mom's side of the family.
And Sunday, I had to work (Sunday is my regular workday) but Tom worked on some of our planned reorganization in the house. It's going to look so good when we get things finished. Maybe I can talk him into having some type of cook-out and inviting people over!
