Dismantling & Drinks

We started de-decorating Sunday. I wasn’t planning on starting so soon but the mood hit and once I got going, I couldn’t stop. I’ve been working on it for 3 days and we’re about 75% done. We just have 3 trees to de-ornament and dismantle, then outside lights. Not bad progress for only 4 days into January.

But I’m old and tired and my knees and back hurt from all the bending and moving so I have to take Advil every day.

Tonight, we celebrate our progress with cocktails. Jeffrey’s having his usual (Tanqueray martini) but I’m having a Gimlet with Rangpur Tanqueray. It’s rather lovely!

  1. I always feel sad when I take down Christmas decorations. I didn’t decorate this year, mainly because I still miss my partner (may he rest in peace) and I just didn’t have it in me. But typically, taking down the decorations is a melancholy moment for me.
