The Party's Over

The Christmas dishes are ready to go back into the closet for another year.

The table is ready to be returned to it's 'everyday' look

The last plate of Christmas goodies is pretty well decimated.

The tree is 'un-laden' and soon to be dismatled.

To quote Elizabeth Zimmermann
So the tree will come down and the ornaments will be put away for another year. To me this is one of the most touching of the annual rites; much more so than that of putting up the tree when all is festivity and excitement. Where shall we all be when these boxes are opened again? What is about to befall? What joys are in store? We are thankful for the past year and hold a good thought over the next.

The party's over. My 'good thought' for all of you is HAPPY KNITTING in 2009!!
