I knew this night would come – the night before my return to work and the real world. I’ve always loved the quietness of the week after Christmas and I’ve been engaged in many lazy activities. But tomorrow, the real world begins in earnest. And it begins early.
Today, I took down all the holiday decorations, but I couldn’t bear to remove the little tree in the living room, so I left it up for just a few more days.
I just love seeing the lights.
We usually always leave the camera by either the kitchen or breakfast nook window, and today I saw this little marauder out by the row of feeders that line the patio.
The little scamp.
I used a free texture and a tutorial that I found over at Shadowhouse Creations.

And I found this leaf during an afternoon walk. I think that it looks like lace.
I did end up seeing a movie this week with a friend (hi, Margie!). We were in the mood for something light, so we saw ‘How Do You Know’ with Reese Witherspoon, Paul Rudd, Owen Wilson, and Jack Nicholson.
We both agreed that it was okay. For me, a highlight was the trailer for a movie that I would love to see, although it won’t be out until the spring. And if you’ve read Water for Elephants, you might want to see it too.
Welcome to all the new faces I’ve been seeing here. Hope you all have a great week in this new year.
Until tomorrow, my friends . . .
