The Christmas decorations are just about all put away now. I really could have left it up longer but the tree was so dried out.
Of course I had not thought this out. The tree had to go through the living room and dining room out the french doors.
Which doesn’t sound so bad except the mister had flocked the tree himself. Which I am so very grateful for. But because the tree was so dry it left lots of tiny pieces of white all over my entire house. It looks like we had the New Year’s party here and there was lots of confetti thrown.
This was the first tree I have enjoyed the entire time of the Christmas season. It feels like there is so much to do for Christmas that I usually start late November decorating. That means by Christmas day alot of years I started taking the tree down Christmas night. I just couldn’t take looking at it anymore. It felt so overdone and brash. Like living on the Vegas strip for a month. Or eating fudge everyday for breakfast. Just too much!
We are all looking at the end of the year now. I don’t do resolutions. They aren’t real to me. I read or heard some ‘expert’ that when you want real change you don’t wait on a number on the calendar. It’s a mental process to get to the point that you are ready to make changes. It is your own internal clock that decides the time for it. That makes sense to me, what do you think?
Happy New Year!
