I have been so exhausted. I didn't do anything on my day off yesterday. In the late afternoon, however, I got up enough ambition to do SOMETHING about my lingering Christmas. I had hung my stockings with care on the bannister along with my Christmas cards.
So they came down. It looks so bare now.
And I put my New Year's Cherished Teddy by the TV.
I hated to get rid of the Christmas tree. It was so beautiful. But all good things must come to an end.
Now I have a cute snowman lamp that my friend, Chrissy, gave me for Christmas. It looked lonely by itself so I added my cardinals. They are red like the lampshade. I like this so much I think it will stay up through Valentine's Day.
On my little fireplace stove I put a penquin stuck in a snow globe. It sparkles and changes colors. It is so cute!
And behind it is a jar candle I just bought this year at Rite Aid. (Boy, I spend so much money in that store!) It has two cardinals on it sitting on snowy tree branches.
That's as far as I got before my energy ran out. But at least it's a start.
I had to work today. Fortunately I had a lot of help and it wasn't too busy. I was really tired, though, so we called out for Chinese food for dinner. I am still really tired even after eating so I think it's going to be an early to bed night.
But before I go here is my 8:30 a.m. picture from yesterday. As you can see it's cloudy and gray.
But look at these cool clouds Joe and I saw later in the day.
I haven't downloaded this morning's picture, though, so that will have to be the topic of another post.
I'm literally falling asleep at my keyboard, so I will end.
