Packing up, Duane's car, & other non-essential stuff

Well, this is what the tree looked like this year. I know the pic isn't great.

When i box up things i put them in these, & then they stand around the base of the tree looking pretty for the season.

I usually leave the tree up until Epiphany, but it isn't in me this year. And we have guests coming for the weekend & it might be hard to get to it later. The folks that are coming tomorrow (Duane's cousins) are Jehovah's Witnesses & don't celebrate the holidays. If i really wanted to leave the tree up i would,
but i just don't & i think having the holiday stuff put away might be more comfortable for all of us.

I have literally a mountain of laundry to do, the holiday ornaments to put away, the cat-free room to prepare (his cousin is allergic to our cats), the fridge needs to be cleaned out, & i'm sure lots more. This, after Patty came to clean Monday!

And . . . tah dah! Duane's car. :)

The one where he is hugging the car is in front of his parents' house on Christmas Eve. The other two are at Sugarbear & were taken at the request of the insurance agent.

Happy 7th day of Christmas! Seven swans a swimming. :)

Happy New Year everyone! Be safe! And may God bless y'all. :)

Have a very Happy New Year, Kathryn. Duane's car looks "zippy", which is not a word I get to think of all that often, so thank you for that!

Happy New Year, my friend! You are very thoughtful to consider your company's religious beliefs and taking down the tree to make them comfortable. That is so kind.

I love the photos of the car and especially with Duane, that is so cute!
