I have been trying to get things put away around here. I'm taking my time. No hurry. But I came across something that I found sort of funny. It was a bowl of kisses.
I find this funny because they are sitting out in plain sight. They might not be on the coffee table/pie cooling rack but they were right there next to the Christmas tree. No one ate them. I wish I could say the same for my Ghirardelli's. I have been known to keep a stash of my chocolate in my desk. I try to hide them but everyone is on to me and my covert ways. Oh look, there are actually two bags. Everyone just helps themselves to my heavenly dark chocolate squares. Perhaps I should keep them in a bowl for everyone to see. Out in the open. They might last longer. Pfft, who am I kidding? Then they wouldn't be so handy when I'm blogging.
The tree is down and out at the curb now. Sort of sad. I liked having it in here. The smell was great.
whoa, blurry picture
The ornaments are packed. I still want to get rid of some of my other stuff. Off to goodwill they will go. I didn't put up half of my stuff this year. That's a clue that it should go.
okay, so I need more practice with the new camera
And the giant ball of lights is ready to be put away. There are zip ties in that mess somewhere. Don't you worry. But, sadly hubby did step on one strand so next year I'll be swearing at them I'm sure, trying to find that one darn bulb. Because did he replace it when he smashed it? No, he just kept wrapping them up.
Last but not least my sweet angel must get packed away too. I think she got a stiff neck from being in the box all year which might explain her head cocked to the side. I just noticed how she's holder those lights like a defibrillator. Perhaps she's waiting to jump start someone's heart and yell, CLEAR! So nice to have her watching over us.
Better get back to it. I'd rather be playing with my camera but this clutter is calling my name. And it's not a very nice name.
