Crisp January

Mighty cold out  now at 5 degrees.   I spent the day taking down some Christmas decorations and it seems to be taking forever.
Will finish tomorrow hopefully.
  I leave a few lights inside , I like the color of some and the candle in the window lends a soft glow on long winter days.
Sunday evening shot out of window

will take down the stair decorations tomorrow too.

Santa has to go to the closet too.

The house always looks so bare after the Christmas decorations come down, but they wouldn't be so special if we kept them all year. You certainly seem to have had a lot of snow.

Your pointsettia look so beautiful. I think I spelled it wrong. Love that Santa. Enjoy the snow. Ours is gone and lots of cold rain has taken its place..Happy Monday night..Judy

Hi Betsy,

It was a beautiful snow, wasn't it? I believe we got about eight inches here in our part of N.C. I love a soft, quiet snowfall, especially the first of the season. I'm still taking down my Christmas decs as well. It takes awhile, doesn't it?

Your Santa is cute, and the poinsettia on your header is beautiful! Thanks so much for your recent visits and have a wonderful weekend!

Warm hugs,

Denise at Forest Manor
