I love the hush that takes over the neighborhood and my small town the day after Christmas. All the frenzy is put to rest and the celebration we all enjoyed is a warm memory to enjoy time and time again. But then we come to that last week in the year, you know the one, where it is difficult to know what to do with yourself. Because...
You're a bit tired from the wonderful Christmas you just enjoyed with family and friends and possibly a little too much of the foods that you don't routinely eat, except for special occasions, like Christmas.
You're pretty sure you want to take a vacation in a warm climate, but that old bank account is saying no, no, no...
You're growing a bit tired of the decor that spilled all over the house in this wonderful celebration we enjoy. But you're not ready to invest the energy to put it all away, as you clearly remember how much work it was to put it all up!
You're missing the cookies that have already been eaten, wishing the ones you don't enjoy as well, had been baked in a smaller batch or possibly not at all. Unfortunately, there is still too much food to ask for anything to be baked...
It is the middle of the week, and there is no football to watch, or shopping to do, or chores that are calling your name (well not loudly enough!). So you feel a bit off kilter.
And then someone gives you a big hug and a heartfelt Thank you, and you truly know that Christmas and all the work involved is so worth it and you really can't wait for next year!
But for now, you have decided that any New Year's resolutions, will just have to wait because right now it is the perfect time to do nothing and enjoy the memories of this year. Because this is the last week of the year, and this moment will never happen again, for you to enjoy!
It's a new week, thanks for stopping by!
