Rainy Days and Saturday Ramblings
Christmas Eve was a wonderful family night....It was just my boys, hubby, and me...a little more special than usual because my youngest was able to be with us. We ate...and ate...and then ate some more. But, unfortunately, my youngest wasn't feeling well, so although we usually wait until midnight to openthe gifts, this year we did so at 10:30 so he could get home. I got one of my favorite gifts...a Barnes and Noble gift card from my youngesi and a new coat and cologne from my eldest. Hubby and I didn't exchange gifts this year...what with his situaltion and all. Besides, there is nothing that I really need. Just having the family together after the tumultous December I have had was enough for me. Yesterday we had a great meal (Penile, gondulas and rice, mixed string beans, cupcakes) and basically just lounged around in front of the television. And last night, I did something I never do. I stayed up until 2 am in the morning watching Noah Wylie in the three "Librarian" films. Usually, I am in bed by 11 the latest...especially since I knew I had a busy day ahead of me.
And then this morning arrived, and life was back to normal. It's a food shopping and cooking week for me, so I headed out early to beat the heavy rain and wind forcasted for our area today. Good bye, snow!!! All my meals are on the stove and in the oven. And like many others of you, my fellow bloggers, my friends, I am spending some time today thinking my blogs. My first thought was, "Oh, my, what do I write about now?" I've gotten so used to writing about Yule and Christmas as many of us have. It's a time of new beginnings...Do I want to begin anew? What do I hope to accomplish? I've only been blogging since late September so this will be my first full year. I know I want to incorporate some of The Native American teachings I have studied, but I also have many wondrous tales in my family background to share. In my other blog, I plan to incorporate 'shadow and inner child' work, but I also hope to find a place for dreamswork...which I credit with saving my life many, many years ago. Oh, and there is so much more, but now I realize I am rambling.
So, my dear blogland friends, as we wind down from the holiday, I'd like to take this opportunity to say that I am so glad to have met all of you. I am not much of a socializer. My calendar consists of when the new shows return to the lineup. LOL!!! Having all of you in my life means more to me than I can possibly put into words. Thank you.
