Annual Renewal

The loveseat enveloped my body last night when our day of Christmas celebration was over. There was the buoy effect as I tried to sink in but I was just too inflated to actually feel comfortable. “Why” I screamed in my brain as the melancholy set in. Now begins the day after Christmas.

Unlike several of my friends, I have never been the day after Thanksgiving shopper nor do I look forward to bargain shopping the day after Christmas. Manic buying, shopping, cooking, planning and the joy of Christmas decorations ends at sunset on Christmas Day. The week before The New Year has always been the week of renewed hope. I like to think of it as I have been loved and nourished on Christmas which gives me the courage for the “start over” week….and the new year!

So onward and upward…this beautiful sunrise reminds me I have my week of hope, love and renewal beginning.

Until next time…..

  1. I decorated less this year than ever so not a lot to pick up. But I did pick up most of it. Not all. I like your philosophy. A new beginning…maybe better than my, “and we try again…” ๐Ÿ˜€

  2. Beautiful pictures.
    I packed up most of the Christmas stuff by 7 last night. ๐Ÿ™‚
    I didnโ€™t actually get most of the Christmas stuff out this year so it was pretty simple. Now the house is filled with a ridiculous amount of chocolate and alcohol.
