Well, the hullabaloo is over.. all that is left are bits of paper, tags, ribbons and packaging. I hope everyone had a most delightful Christmas and I hate to say, I am SSOOOO happy it is over! The intent was there to post a spectacular Christmas post full of thoughtful quotes and lovely images, but like all my other Christmas plans, it fell flat and I spent most of the past few days in a great tizzy, with tons of last minute shopping and ALL the wrapping to do. T woke up on Christmas morning with a horrid cold and needless to say, today is going to be a quiet day, full of cleaning and sorting. C has gone back to work and tomorrow, or this weekend the decorations come DOWN. Time for spring. Flowers, birds, green grass, new leaves, oh. wait.. we still have THREE months of snow left. Or four, depending on the temperament of Mother Nature and Global Warming this year. So, I leave you for my cleaning.. I am in some serious need to visit Ellie. (She's in Florida!) :) Or perhaps, to climb aboard the ship that is about to depart below, sit on deck and wave to all the poor souls still on land as we pull out from the harbor. Maybe to a tropical or exotic destination. Africa or South America? Anyone want to join me?
Enjoy the chaos that follows and be sure to show me your fabulous Sale finds from all your after Christmas shopping!!
My Brother 'ships' out today.. please keep all the men and women who are overseas and away from their families this holiday season in your thoughts and prayers.
