day after christmas, still singing, still grateful
notes from maggie's farm
Today, I'm grateful that it's time for cleanup.
This little house hasn't the room for the remnants of celebrating for too long, and we've got to get it all back in an organized fashion to make it easier to pull it out next year. Or that's the idea, anyway. Every year I promise myself that, every year I find new hints to facilitate that, and every year I get closer to the goal!.
While I write this, I hear the hum of a vacuum cleaner in the distance, the song of someone helping in the cleanup effort without even being asked to do so. Is it STILL Christmas? Nah, we share the load every day around here. Goes to prove, as Mr West sings it, above, 'even when Christmas is over, the light of the world is still here'.
Great ideas from Real Simple:
