Took the tree down...finally. Everything is safely stored away till next November/December in one side of the guest room closet (photo above).
The tree itself, I dropped off at a charity shop rather than packing it away. It has served us well through the years...about twenty I think. It still looks good, but I think next season we'll purchase one of the pre-lit ones that are easier to set up.
Happy to have that job done, and I celebrated by rearranging the living room. Not sure I'm happy with the layout this way either, but we'll live with it for awhile.
