|It's cold and brittle..|
I love winter, but I do not want to be cold if there is no snow. And unlike last year, there is no snow. This makes me incredibly sad and very, very miserable.
On the plus side it makes for some drop dead gorgeous sunrises. And a chance to stay inside and enjoy the company of family and friends. At least those brave enough to come out to visit and work.
As I sit here defrosting, feeling some tingling pain returning to my face, I am trying to find the energy to get myself up the stairs and ready for work. I always forget how difficult it is for me to get back to the normal work week after time off. The pace is different, the need for rest becomes greater. I despise having to budget my energy. And I never do well the first week.

I don't know if Hubby will be up to going. I guess we will see. I would hate to go without him, especially as he and momma are close buds, but I am not sure how he will feel. We'll see. He's able to go out and about a bit more now, mostly within tolerance. So we will see what tomorrow brings.

Well, I sure didn't plan to have this go so far down the rabbit hole of sadness, after all it is Friday, it holds so much promise for the coming weekend. I won't only do sad stuff. I will finally take down Christmas decorations and deep clean my house like I always do as the ornaments and lights come down. I will finish at least one sock (this is a cheat - I only need to kitchener the toe), and if we can find a date and time hubby and I will have dinner with two of the wonderful young adults I went to Brasil with! Somewhere in that mix I will find time for a bit more unpacking (no I am still not finished) and the usual chores.
It's just an ordinary life... I am so glad it's mine...
