Jolly No More

It's over for yet another year. The excitement and holiday frenzy is a thing of the past, which is not necessarily a bad thing.  The Christmas lights are still merrily sparkling, both inside and out, while the Christmas tree, now stripped of its presents, still stands at attention begging to be noticed.

A comforting calm has taken over, as lives return to normal and sanity reappears after being AWOL for a week.

Christmas Eve

So, let's put the red and green back into the drawers and get ready to embrace the new year, with its tempting promise of a new beginning and fresh start, that is just around the corner.
Translation: my annual diet begins January 1.


  1. Your house looks so festive and bright. And your Christmas Eve photos are really good.
    We have already taken down our tree & decorations...wanted to get back to 'normal' : )
    Have a wonderful New Year!!!

  2. Everything is packed up in totes, and stored away for another year. The house looks like Christmas never happened. Then I find a reluctant bit of decoration or an ornament, hiding out under the couch or behind a door, unwilling to let the holiday end. And a little charge of Christmas spirit runs through me. It's a good thing.

    Your photos are wonderful. Looking at them delivered that little charge again.

  3. Wow, you did the decorating big time! Lovely. Happy New Year! And good luck with the "annual diet!"


Please leave me a comment. I'd love to hear from you.
