Putting Away the Christmas Decorations

Posted by Sue on January 8, 2007 in Uncategorized |

Okay, to be honest, they’re still up at home. I decided I needed to put them away here in blog-land, however, so ta-da! Here we are fresh and new in our winter coat. Unfortunately, it is drab and grey and brown here in Iowa. I know, I shouldn’t complain. Hubs keeps telling me he’s happy not to have to fight the snow. I know in my mind it is safer for driving and walking and general well-being not to have a foot of snow on the ground (let alone ice). Me? I’m ready for a good two-feet of blizzard where I can snuggle up next to my fireplace with a bunch of warm-blooded critters and just veg. Not much hope of it in the forecast. Darn.

    Christmas went away last Thursday around here. Good to not let that linger. We need the house back!

    Here is Florida I often find it funny when people let the Christmas decorations linger…I don’t know why though. Maybe because it looks silly to see the red bows that are hanging outside turn brown and crusty under the heat of the blazing sun! It’s about 85 degrees today!
    Hope you get your snow soon!

    The World Procrastenator Almanac says that tomorrow is the best time to take down decorations.

    it’s supposed to snow here wednesday. i hope it snows enough that i get to stay home!

  • Becky says:

    I love your new banner — it looked like that when I went sledding a couple of weeks ago.

  • Beckett says:

    I love the new color.
    My favorite part of snowy weather is the whole going into a warm house after braving the cold, drinking something warm, snuggled with a good read and the cats at my feet. Pure bliss.

    We’ve been pounded with about 4 feet of snow for the last three weeks. If I could send some to the Iowa farmer (who need it for their crops) I would send it in a heartbeat.

    Forgive me if I say your new place looks like my backyard and I don’t like it much? 😉

  • ms. sizzle says:

    it just started snowing here and then, it stopped! damn it!

  • Sally says:

    Be careful what you wish for – didn’t you guys get a ton of snow late last winter?
    However, I know the feeling, we’ve had very little snow up here in MN and my husband’s a snowmobiler and normally takes an annual trip to northern MN to snowmobile this time of year but they’ve got no snow up there! So he’s planning to go to Montana instead. And clever Montana, they have radio ads here that beckon Minnesotans to their state for winter fun.
    As for Christmas stuff, we’re taking ours down this weekend. I joked to my husband that we should aways make it a Martin Luther King holiday tradition to take down our Christmas decorations.

    I like the new look. I think it’s neat that you change with the seasons or whatever you want to change with. Of course, I’ve never seen or been near snow like that. And that’s quite all right with me. I don’t like cold weather at all.
