But for all intensive purposes it is not happening until January 2nd!
I watch the Rose Parade on TV every New Year’s Day morning but, because January 1 falls on a Sunday this year, it has been moved to Monday.
It just won’t be the same! What will I do on New Year’s Day morning while I am drinking my Mimosa?
Most years I take my Christmas décor down on New Year’s Day. But. . .New Year’s Day is not the New Year’s Day holiday so what’s a body to do? Gary’s Raider’s ornaments: down they come! These are just his Christmas ornaments; he has a whole stash of Raider gear which he places around the 5th wheel on game day!My beach/serenity garden will return to normal. Nativity scene will be replaced by one of my eight Adirondack chairs. The wreath on the chair in the photo will be covered with a shell. (The garden contains a mixture of sand, shells, rocks and found objects I gather from beaches as we travel throughout the country.)My bells will get packed away until next Christmas. Isn’t it funny how a collection becomes a collection? Mine started with the silver bell to the right of the large white bell near the center. Don & Lee gave me this sterling silver beauty many years ago. Some were my Moms and others I have picked up at thrift stores and after-Christmas sales.OK, I am going to stop agonizing, moaning and groaning about New Year’s holiday 2012. The reality is that I am totally off the hook this year because I am kicking back with sister Micki in Ventura! We will most likely watch the new HGTV shows like RV 2012 and the 2012 Dream House. No football-yahoo!
One of my favorite sayings is “I’m flexible” so I will be flexible about this frustrating New Year’s Day holiday situation!
Happy New Year
Blessings to my blogging friends
