Happy New Year Everyone!
I woke up this morning with such a burst of energy…which is surprising because today is back to school day for my kids and we have been sleeping in every single day. I had no intention of writing a blog post today but as the sun streamed in my windows, I was suddenly motivated by the beautiful day AND all the clean open surfaces which no longer display Christmas decorations! Hooray!
I am now motivated to restart my search for counter stools for the kitchen. After all, the kitchen renovation has been done for months now so I really need to get moving on this! (Look, you can even see the bright blue sky reflected in the counter top! What a beautiful morning!)
My mantel is now cleared of all Christmas decor and waiting patiently for me to come up with something for winter into spring. Kind of a difficult time to decorate isn’t it? I am sure I will think of something…(after a few trips to Homegoods!)
And now the mantel/ledge above my stove is cleared and is enjoying this lovely sunshine as well. I think I will leave that space empty for awhile.
And to replace my snowman Christmas corner, I pulled out a cookbook to display for now. Looks like a great recipe to try tonight!
Now don’t get me wrong, I still have piles of Christmas bins to drag back down to the basement but for the most part, the surfaces are clean and ready for a fresh start in the new year!
Now that my morning tea is almost finished, I am going to get started on those bins. I don’t want to lose momentum! Happy Monday! I hope the sun is shining where you live!
Have you cleared out your holiday decor yet?
