You Know The Holidays are OVER when....


The Perpetual Calendar says - January 03!























The Christmas tree has been stripped of all it's holiday goodness and is sitting naked on the front porch waiting to be mulched!

Or, maybe, I should leave it there! Introducing - Tina's NEW landscaped porch! In the Springtime, I'll just spray paint it with some Heirloom White and hang birdhouses on it!!! Another blogland DIY project.....LOL


















There is an empty tub waiting for it's next use...Kindling Storage by the Fireplace, Iced Cold Sodas in the Summer, Bobbing for Apples in the Fall. What else would you use it for???

















Pine Needles all over the floor and table cloth "tree skirt", where the tree once stood. Thank goodness for my Dyson. How did I EVER live without it???

















A whole wad of Silver Tinsel stuffed in the trash (can't let the little song birds outside have access to that - even if it took longer to remove all of it from the tree branches than it did to decorate the whole tree!!!) - along with all the other remnants of the holidays...Blackberry pie wrapper, apple cider bottle, box of chocolate covered orange jelly sticks, chip bags....Let the New Year DIET begin...Oh wait, I wasn't the only one eating all that JUNK!!!

***************

Back to work tomorrow. Why does the work week always have to start with a Monday? No wonder we all hate Mondays....

It's been a nice Holiday break, so I really shouldn't be complaining. Plus, it's not like most other Mondays. It's the First MONDAY of the NEW YEAR! Lots to get caught up on. Lots to start doing. So, here's to Monday.

Cheers! Early to bed - early to rise....just another Resolution for me....I'm gonna try. I'm gonna try. I'm gonna try......
