A warm, Sunday afternoon in January just screamed for a bicycle ride. My poor bike has been patiently waiting for me to take it out since November. I figured I’d ride 20-30 minutes, nothing too strenuous, as I am almost done with this two-week long head-cold. So I pumped up the back tire, attached my phone with my “Map My Ride” app, put on my helmet, and off I went.
The air was amazingly warm at 60 degrees and the hazy sunshine threw long shadows at 2 o’clock here in Northern California.
Seemed idyllic…except for…what did I see??
Not one, but FIVE yards with full-on holiday decorations STILL up.
Please, people, what is preventing you from taking down and PUTTING AWAY your sad, flat Santas and snowmen, your fallen down reindeer, and your sagging lights hanging half-way off the side of your house? We’ve had nothing but sunny weather since before Christmas! What is your excuse?
Perhaps you are still sick with the same head cold I had. Perhaps you just got back from a lengthy vacation abroad (not in this neighborhood–I’m trying here). Perhaps you are just (say it!), LAZY!
Christmas is OVER! Please don’t make me leave this card on your porch!
Anyone having this problem in your neighborhood?
