Are We Finished With Holidays

Are we back to normal yet?  I still have decorations out, but I'm really getting tired of looking at them.  Right now the house just seems to be cluttered, so today, I really worked on getting the trees down.  I undecorated and packed away 2 trees, and tomorrow I plan to finish the other 2. ( I put the other one away the day after Christmas)  I've ordered the 'light gun' to try to help me figure out what's wrong with my peppermint lights, so I'm not in too big a hurry to put those away yet.  Three days before Christmas, the lights on my traditional tree started acting up, and by the day after, the lights wouldn't work.  And of course, this is my prelit tree that is only 3 years old.  Hopefully, I can resolve the light problems before I put it away for the year.

I went back to the sewing room today for the first time in almost 2 weeks, and I had such a good time!  I hadn't made my block for the monthly swap I'm in, and I hadn't started my Fall mini, and I haven't made my blocks for Aunt Pitty Pat's swap.  So, now my block is done, and the mini top is put together, and I still haven't started my blocks for APP.  Progress has been made, though, and it felt great to be back among the familiar items in my messy room.  I didn't take any pictures.....maybe tomorrow.

Every year I promise myself not to do as much decorating. I so dislike putting things away.

I love the quiet time after Christmas to enjoy the decorations and the peace that surrounds the house.

I usually have the same feeling right after Christmas that the house feels cluttered. Funny how "cluttered" before the 25th is "cozy"! I think it's anticipation that makes it tolerable before then.


Looks like we did the same thing today--I also packed away most of my christmas and it is early for me--I usually wait until New Year's--it's funny but alot of people seemed in a hurry this year to put it all away early!!!!!
May you have a great New Year and may all your dreams and goals come true in 2010--see ya then
Hugs, Di

I can remember the chaotic Christmas decoration mess I had when the kids were growing up. It always looked beautiful during the holiday, but by the time New Year's day arrived, I was ready to put it all away.

Hope you had fun playing in your sewing room.

Thank you for coming by and leaving such warm remarks. Yes the holiday is over and on with the new year and new times :) Today the tree is going down. I don't have time the days I work. So today is it ;) I think I am different. I feel like the house is naked after everything is taken down and put up. Some how it feels less cozy and empty!
Happy sewing and I hope you get all those projects done that you intend to do this year ;)
