Putting away

This is the time of year to put away—Christmas decorations, of course.  That is, if the Christmas decorations are actually coming down.  Personally, I am still working on it.  My tree continues to snap on and off according to the timer setting.  I enjoy coming out of the bedroom to the cheery lights each morning.  I have put away most of the other decorations, though.

I am also putting away dishes.  I try to entertain using “nice things” (as my Mom would say) during the Holidays.  So, that means climbing on the ladder to get water glasses or serving dishes from the top shelf.   Not surprisingly, they don’t always get put away in a timely manner. 

Christmas music goes back into the box.  Although I’ve uploaded a lot of my Christmas music into the cloud, we still have some favorites that we carry out to the vehicles. 

Games and toys.  I hope I get these out again before summer.  We had several fun game nights during the Holidays and it made me wonder why we don’t do it more often.

I am putting away records that I’ll need to get back out before figuring taxes.  It’s only January, why hurry…out of sight, out of mind.

And, we put away 2013.  It was a good year.   2014 is a big year for this blog.  Come September, we might have to celebrate.

Seems like we are further south

We did not venture to Phoenix for the KSU bowl game, although they are winning and it is a good game. 

We did venture out to Lake Shawnee this morning.  The number of water fowl there is staggering.  The video doesn’t show the number moving in from the sky.  We suspect at least some of them come our way to eat.  We see them moving up and down the valley.
