Beginning of Ordinary Time

Sunday morning, before we went to Tom's house for Easter dinner, I dragged the Easter boxes back from the storage shed. Sharon packed up the Easter decorations on Monday.

Over the last twenty plus years, Sharon and I have lived into a rhythm of decorating the house. Beginning Labor Day, Sharon starts to decorate the house with fall decorations. At Thanksgiving, we switch the house to Christmas decorations.

Sharon has started to accumulate more Valentines Day decorations that she puts up after we take down the Christmas decorations. After Valentines Day, the house transitions to Easter.

After we take the Easter decorations down, we have started calling it "Ordinary Time." This lasts about four months from Easter to Labor Day.
