I am sitting in my quiet living room, all traces of Christmas fading from view.
I made a resolution in November not to take the Christmas tree down until the first week of January. Then yesterday I had a dream that it was March and I had forgotten to pack Christmas away. So guess what I did tonight as soon as I walked in the door after spending a week in Michigan? You guessed it. I took everything down. My suitcase is still packed and sitting by the couch where it was deposited, but my tree is gone.
I look forward to the day when, in good conscience, I can cover my Christmas tree with a trash bag and leave it up all year.
Now I am busy planning 2015.
If you’ve stopped by my blog recently, you may have noticed that things have been quiet. Don’t be fooled by this. I have a
million trillion things planned for House Honcho 2015. Seriously, you’re not going to want to blink. I believe this could be the blog’s biggest year yet. I have a fun (and slightly crazy) announcement to make January 6.
(No. I am not pregnant. Focus.)
In other news, one year ago I decided to try the photo-a-day challenge, and I loved it … for a month. Truthfully, I wanted to complete an entire year of photos, but I couldn’t keep up. I totally failed. So this year I’ve decided to try again, but try better. I have created a photo-a-week challenge. Why not? And in keeping with HouseHoncho’s theme of celebrating home and family, I have chosen 52 items worth celebrating.
I may take 1 photo a week or multiple photos on the same theme for 1 week, but the goal *should* be more attainable. I’ll post photos here and in the Facebook group, and I’d love to have you do the same (if you’ve forgiven me for failing the last photo challenge).
