Today is a cozy day. No Black Friday madness for me. No way. Today is a day for resting and relaxing.
This week I cooked, cleaned and decorated like mad. The family came for Thanksgiving dinner and we all had fun. Lots of good food and lots of laughs.
But now the house is quiet again and I can hear myself think. I know I still have to run the dishwasher for the umpteenth time. There are decorations and roasting pans to put away. And I should start that turkey soup. The boxes of Christmas decorations should come in from the garage. The lights should be put up on the house. And the Christmas dishes should come down from their shelf. There are lists to make, gifts to buy and cards to send.
But that can all wait until tomorrow. So this afternoon, just for a few hours, I’m going to have some quiet time. I’ll take my knitting outside and sit in the sun. And be thankful again.
