Twas the night after Christmas
and as you look all around
not a Christmas decoration can be found.
When do you put away your Christmas decorations?
For me it is sometime between Christmas and New Year’s Day. This year it was today. This morning as I was tidying up from our family celebration, I began to gather up a few decorations and the next thing I knew I had grouped everything but the tree on the dining table. Hubby brought in the storage bins and it was all packed away.
Then we went out for a couple of hours to make some returns. Although the stores were busy the return lines weren’t very long, so there was time left over to do some shopping. We found a great deal on some shirts for hubby. I’m always on the lookout for a bargain.
After returning home this afternoon I took all of the ornaments off of the tree and put them away. The only thing left is the tree and hubby will put that away in the morning. It is so nice to have the house clean and back to normal.
I hope each of you had a wonderful day of celebration with family and friends. We enjoyed a snack supper and gift exchange with our kids and grands on Christmas Eve. And then on Christmas Day our kids and their families joined us at my parents’ home for dinner. Time spent with family is always a joy and a blessing.
Wishing each of you a blessed New Year,
