I know this isn't the best picture in the world, but unfortunately, during the winter, it is dark both when I leave home in the morning and when I return home at night. Therefore, lighting conditions aren't ideal.
So this is a picture of our Christmas tree sitting out on the curb, waiting to be picked up by the township and cut up into tiny pieces and composted and made into mulch-type-stuff. It's sad because it was such a perfect tree and it represented a wonderful Christmas season, which is always one of the best times of the year. Now we had to take off all the pretty tinsel, ornaments, and lights and then put it out to be reintroduced into the cycle of life.
It feels like now it is officially the end of Christmas and we have to wait another 11 months or so to have it again. I'm sure it will fly by, what with how busy we are, but there are many great things to experience in between, such as cherry blossoms in the spring, BBQ get-togethers in the summer, and fall foliage (maybe with a trip to Vermont?) in the fall. I think it's going to be a great year!
