Letting go and Moving on to a New Year

I celebrate Christmas all the way to January 6th closing with the Epiphany or Three Kings Day. Then comes the  part I least like about Christmas: when it's over! All good things must come to an end.  Now is when I have to put all those happy ornaments, ribbons, lights, aprons, tablecloths, Christmas wreaths and nacimientos or creches away.  It is not so much about the work that may or may not take, but the memories and good feelings these little things bring.

I already have an antidote.  Redecorating. Since I spend most of my time at school, yesterday on my way to pick up Ginger from the kennel at River Oaks Animal Hospital, I stopped at Miller's School Supply in Longwood.  I took the time to scan over there many colorful borders, posters, and educational books.  I walked out with about four new bulletin board borders, cheerful and modern to start the new year right.  So here we come 2013 New Year... New lessons, new lesson plans, and a redecorated room. So no gloominess...lets start new!

Ginger Enjoying Three Kings Day

Feliz dia de Reyes!


Los Reyes que llegaron a Belen, anunciando la llegada del Mesias, hoy con alegria, lo anunciamos hoy tambien!

Alguien muy talentoso pinto esto.  Lo felicito.  Tan pronto sepa su nombre le doy el credito!

Three Kings Day Eve 2013 / Vispera de Reyes!

Vispera de Reyes! Los ultimos detalles...Noche de misterio, esperanza, y sueños... que me traeran los Reyes? Le pusiste gramita? Por que si no, corre a buscar tu cajita, echale yerbita, y corre a dormir...Dios los bendiga y buenas noches.

Night of mystery, hope, and dreams...what will the Kings bring me? Did you get grass for the Kings' horses? If you didn't then you better run and find your little shoe box, throw in some grass, and hurry to fall asleep. God bless and sweet dreams.
