It was sort of a sad weekend as I spent a lot of it taking down all the Christmas decorations. The twelve days of Christmas are now officially over, so down to storage it all goes. Except for the tree, of course, which is now propped up against the woodpile in our back yard. The squirrels are always happy to see a new addition to their playground.
I’m happy about getting the house back to normal for only one reason ~ I applied one of my resolutions to get it done. Discipline. I didn’t want to take it all down because 1) it means Christmas is really over, and 2) it’s hard work for something that just went up a little while ago. But I remembered myself and said in my mind, oh, just do it!
When I was finished I was glad I applied myself despite the fact that we’re now lacking that rosy glow and sparkling shimmer that comes with a Christmas tree. To combat complete withdrawal I lit a bunch of candles on Sunday night to give the room a softer glow. And as you know there is no shortage of candles at the Auntie B’s Wax World Headquarters.
