The holiday decorations that is. They seem a little tired and deserving of a rest. In the past years, with the way our lives played out, we never had the house decorated until ~ December 18 or so. One year I got the tree up on the 23rd, Joe got home late the 24 and he was gone again on the 26th...that was a very short Christmas. But that's behind us now.
I like to reflect on all the ornaments as I pack them up...especially the 2 oldest pieces...porcelain bells from the Hudson's Bay kids party...I got 2 of these prior the birth of my baby sister in 1961.
New Year's isn't a big deal for us...except that one evening in Cold Lake....lots of family around, bitter cold temperatures, everyone dressed to the nines, a limo and oh the party of all parties! We are sitting around the firepit with a cup of something warm and just star gaze. Hope the weather cooperates....cold temperaturess are one thing but please, no winds.
Wishing you all a wonderful day!
