For months I’ve been putting up decorations and taking them down. First Halloween, then Thanksgiving, then Christmas, and then of course, our favorite holiday last week – THE NATTY! Up go the kid’s art projects, the window clings and the ornaments… then a few weeks later, down they go, back into the basement.
After months of festiveness hanging here and there, I was relieved to get the house back to normal. I packed away The Natty decorations and breathed a sigh of relief for the clean slate. For a few months (or about 320 days), there would be some respite from the green and yellow. (Of course, I love the Ducks too, but everyone needs an off-season, right?)
My son’s collection of all things green and yellow; all stacked up like a little Oregon tribute. The apple does not fall far from the tree.
It might be the off-season, but let’s be real… the ducks are everywhere… at least at my house! What bit of duck-stuff has become a permanent fixture at your place?
