Wrapping Up A Christmas

Another Christmas come and gone; the days go by so fast.  Life seems to leapfrog from holiday to holiday so it’s nice to spend a few days holed up in the house, with a big ole lighted tree, a spot of gloomy weather, a comfy couch with cozy throws, and a soft pillow for napping.
The new things will find their way into drawers and closets while the no-longer-needed stuff will be discreetly tucked into the Goodwill bag and hurried to the drop-off center, nobody around here the wiser.
This is a good time of year to check out the inventory at Goodwill; when I saw what others had discarded last year when I brought in my own donation of good-quality stuff, well, let’s just say I had my consciousness raised a bit.

    Timely post for me. . . why is it other peoples stuff is so much more fascinating . . . I'm on a Goodwill kick myself!

    I always enjoy your posts, it's a pleasure to drop by your blog. I have been waiting for those few days where I can sit by the fire and the tree and relax.. ain't happen'n yet. *sigh*

    I am always looking for that second home on the internet down south… to get out of this COLD in the winter. (15 degrees tonight with howling winds). I do love the Gulf side, will see what time brings. And let me know if you see any bargains, even the Atlantic side!! atleast NEAR the beach, if not on it. 🙂

    Happy New Year to you and yours –
