Woke up Thursday morning, it was just time for Christmas to be over. A little bit of Christmas had already been put away – the stockings hung by the chimney with care, for instance. But since the season infiltrates every square inch of my house, a lot was left. So I started picking up various Christmas merries (as my sister calls them) and carrying them to the kitchen and back hall. I counted 8 items in the bathroom alone – and it’s a small bathroom.
By the time the friend who cleans for me showed up, the hallway was impassable. When I got home, she had it all bagged and boxed up and stacked in the hall. And she had un-decorated the tree. I’ve spent the weekend putting it all in the garage, and taking down the pine roping and outdoor decorations.
So what’s not put away as yet is the bows which were decorating the roping – it was raining, so they’re in the back hall drying off.
And I already have the St. Patrick’s Day stuff up! Plus a little bit of Valentine’s Day. You know me – I go right from making Christmas bread to making Irish soda bread. It’s a Great Life! : >
