Well, did you have a good Christmas?
My sisters and I were at my Dad’s house for the past three days. Celebrating sometimes and cleaning out what we could the rest of the time. He hates getting rid of anything but we managed to toss old mattrasses and bedspreads. We walk a thin line these days. If he had his druthers, he would keep everything including the dust.
I photographed the above while taking a break from the constant housework that exists there. The horse and bear were given to my mother years ago. The original owner was named Bill and he received them as Christmas gifts as a child. The bear is now over 100. I don’t know about the horse but I think it is the same for it. Sometimes I put them under the tree in memory of the kids who were and are no longer.
This coming week is my favorite. Most people are off. Those that are working, have few expectations. I like to take this week to get organized. This year I am savoring these precious days more than ever. The final wrap up before January begins.
Have a wonderful week everyone!
