The week of Christmas Pix!

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.

What's your favorite Holiday photo?

Oh, wow! I've never seen a blue poinsetta before. It's so lovely!

This year at my FT job, we had a plethora of different colors (red, white, red with white sprinkles, and hot pink) but this leaves them all behind.

Wow! That's very different, isn't it? I used to love getting poinsettas at Christmas but my Wookie is too fond of live plants so I have to stick to silk ones :D

Leave it to Shop Rite to come up with something unusual. LOL. They had lavender too, but the blue was so striking I had to have one.

I think I'd have had to have one of each :D Lavender is my favorite color :-)
