New Year’s Day holiday 2012. . .

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? DSCN6525Gary’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!DSCN6530My 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.)DSCN6558My 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.DSCN6572OK, 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
