So here we are, already halfway through January, and I still have 2 Rubbermaid containers full of Christmas decorations stacked in my living room.
I had such good intentions!!!
Scrolling through Instagram one day, my friend Carrie had this brilliant photo of chalkboard paint on her storage bins and I was like ‘omg you are a genius and I am doing that RIGHT NOW’. I got as far as the storage bins.
They are all neatly filled with garlands, carefully wrapped lights, and Christmas-ey tins. I was SO proud of myself. I stacked all the ornaments on the lid with every intention of purchasing some special container to go inside the container just especially for ornaments. Then life (and Norma Jean) happened. It was rainy for awhile so I couldn’t grab all the outside lights, of which there were a good many. While I was waiting for a dry spell (and that special ornament box), Norma decided that my pile of little felt bows with a side of glass bulbs looked like a very plush and comfortable place to lay.
So while she made the ornament throne more to her liking from her perch high above all the other living room furniture, she stretched and spun around and tried to smack everything shiny, and knocked some ornaments into the floor. Lucy ate a few. Gidget ran off with a couple.
And so between them, the cats and the dog have completely thwarted my organization motivation. Rude.
I’ve since moved on to other things that I am much better at. Like making scones.
Scones can get kind of a bad rep. Because some people think that scones are supposed to be dry and brittle — I have had my fair share of hard-as-a-rock scones. Those are just… NO.
Scones are supposed to be buttery and flaky. Like giant biscuits full of fun and delicious things. These scones are not only buttery and flaky, but they are full of pretty peppers, onions, a little spinach, SOME CREAM CHEESE.
I love them.
And they aren’t just for breakfast! These scones are fan-freaking-tastic with soup. You can cut them smaller – sometimes I make little circle scones that are more biscuit-sized. Same recipe — just shorten the bake time. Buttery scones full of colorful bell peppers, sweet onions, fresh spinach, and cream cheese. Perfect with breakfast or afternoon tea, or with soup!!! These are great with soup. As an Amazon Associate and member of other affiliate programs, I earn from qualifying purchases.

I think I’ve given up on fancy organizing. I’ll settle for just getting the stuff in a closet.
