I hope everyone had a great holiday! Are you all sufficiently recovered from the eating, the unwrapping, the schlepping of gifts to relatives' homes, the caroling [does anyone go caroling anymore?] and the collecting of ripped up wrapping paper to add to the recycling bin.
Whew. Holidays are hard work, before, during and after. This is the week I usually start working on putting all the gifts away - no easy task with two kids whose rooms are already bursting at the seams with toys and clothes and books and video games. 'Tis the season to clean out closets, send a HAZ-MAT team under the beds and locate all those gifts I put away last year that everyone forgot they even had.
The fridge is stuffed with leftovers, the thank-you notes for long-distance gifts have been sent, and now it's time to kick back and rest a bit before ushering out the old year and cranking up the gears to get started on the new.
My favorite Christmas picture this year is this one - my blue sparkled Poinsettia. Why a blue one? Because it's different. I've always been attracted to the unusual, the horse of a different color, so to speak. This caught my eye and I had to have it because it's something you just don't see.
