Well, here is the tree naked again,and we begin to reverse the decorating process. It isn't so bad to put everything away,since before you know it, you will be hauling it out again. I take the time to reflect on the year I left, and the year ahead when I deconstruct the Christmas decor. I still think the tree looks best this way.
All the pillows,nativity scenes,and nutcrackers,are now going to sleep for another year.......
I love taking the time to put all these little beauties away in individual tissue, and look at them once more.
Those lights were not fun to take down this time!
Every new years day, we go to this calendar sale in Oakland, in the Rockridge district. It's always a bit of a mad house,as this little tiny book store can't hold that many people. It is the challenge of the hunt,and wondering what they will have every year. We usually go out to lunch after we have found our prize calendar, then head home. When we got home, we went to the movies to see "Marley and Me." I won't give anything away,like a lot of people love to do these days, I'll just say that I really liked it.
I hope everyone had a happy and safe New Years eve and look forward to reading more blogs in 2009 and making new friends.
