Peach State says: Taking the Christmas Decorations Down
The fragrant scents of spices and apple fill the emptied shell called a home. The tragic end of the cozy mixture of glowing lights and shining ornaments has ushered in widened pathways and visible spaciousness. Without any prompting my sons undertook the chore of “Taking the Christmas Decorations Down!”
I dusted the large table, against the wall, and quickly lit the two candles sitting on the table. “This really helped me cope with the decoration devoid expanse. “I apologize for the slightly dramatic tone…I like cozy!” I should be able to put my house completely back together by tomorrow.
Let me explain!:
The boxes come up.
The boxes are filled.
The boxes are stacked.
The boxes are taken back to the storage room.
The bare emptiness is left for me to fill.
After supervising the packing away of the seasonal-memory-filled-treasures; I was left with changing of the tablecloths and preparing for the New Year. Greenery and color schemes have to be changed out…pictures replaced in their correct places, spring cleaning in December…I have my work cut out for me today. The good news is that it is almost done, no thanks to the deserters who seemed to vanished once the last box was taken downstairs. (typical) I deserve a break…a good movie should do nicely! After all…I need to get ready to make dinner in a little while. “MAN oh MAN…I need a vacation!” Suggestions?
I hope you get everything accomplished you have to do today…Have a great day!
