Wrap Up!

It's winding down now. I can feel it and the signs are everywhere ... I dread the dismantling of Christmas. I find no joy in stripping the tree and returning the treasured ornaments to the safety of their weathered packaging. Where are the kids now???

The Christmas stockings look a little sad drooping from the fireplace mantel, - devoid of treats. And the tree stands barren without anything underneath it.  This would be a good day to procrastinate - however I will resist the urge. I will toss the stale ginger cookies and week old scones into our green bin, gather every shred of used wrapping and bows and relieve the staircase banister of its garland. I will unhook, roll up, repack, take down and store away Christmas for another year.

It was a good Christmas season. I am full and satiated, with enough in me to comfortably sustain me for the rest of the winter! For now -- it's a wrap!

Here are some shots from my post Christmas walk about ...


  1. haha, i like the way you put it Lynn, i'll be doing much the same this rainy sunday. only i kind of like tucking everything away in it's place. it gets me in the mood to do a little rearranging and cleaning out (of my home).
    have fun today!
