Treat everyday as a new adventure

Out With The Old

Here in California we have 2 hours and 37 minutes until the new year! The last day of December is always spent the same at my house-Taking down Christmas decorations and the tree.

Thought I’d share some of the holiday pics with all of you.

There were homemade goodies, decorations, and the stockings were hung. Christmas cheer for everyone! And even a jigsaw puzzle to do…


But alas, a new year has come. So out with the old and…

In with the new!

Have you ever noticed how plain and empty the house always seems after the decorations come down. Kinda sad, isn’t it?

But we are given a brand new year filled with hopes and dreams. A time to renew and start over again.

Happy 2014 everyone!

Here’s wishing you all a happy, healthy, productive, and prosperous New Year!


  1. Happy New Year! 🙂

    The house will look empty when the tree comes down, but I kind of like how clean it looks, too!


    • Hi Rebecca! How have you been? Yes, it does look cleaner. In fact I spent most of the day doing a lot of cleaning.


  4. Just took the decorations yesterday. Oh well.


    • That’s not too bad. Some of my neighbors will have their lights up and on until Valentine’s Day! 🙂 Happy New Year. Any special resolutions for this year?


      • Happy New Year to you too.

        For some strange reason, I don’t make New Year resolutions. Too contrary, I guess. 🙂
