Packing Up the Holidays

Ornament in Tissue

As I pack up the very last ornament, wrapping it so carefully in tissue paper and placing it in a resting spot for another 11 months, I can’t help but feel a bit melancholy.  I don’t mean to be gloomy but, the holidays are my favorite time of year.  It is always a bit sad for me to bid this time adieu.

So many wonderful memories…

With that being said, I must admit to being a neat freak…an over-abundance of “stuff” for a prolonged period of time makes me nervous, so…I dismantled the Christmas Tree {as well as the mantle over the hearth}, took down the evergreen bough hanging on the outdoor railing, and sterilized the kitchen after a month of culinary escapades.

This evening…the house was in order.  Holiday decorations put away…the kitchen scrubbed to sparkling!

I cleaned and polished all day today and I could not possibly entertain the thought of cooking for dinner tonight.  We ordered pizza for delivery & watched a movie… Soooo Happy!
