Today is errand day for me. I’ve got an appointment and I’m running errands after that appointment. Then when all the hassle of those errands are done I’m going to write. I have this week off and I’m hoping to get a lot of writing done.
Christmas was bearable. Thankfully no extra drama. It was wonderful to see my brother at a family function. It was also nice to have a fairly quiet day with the family. I had some lovely conversations with two of my nieces and some others. Those sparkling moments made the day but I am glad it is over. The anxiety of the day has faded.
I look outside my window this morning and I have a white overcast day with white snow on the ground and except for the stark gray/brown of the trees, deep green of the evergreens, and the houses I think it would all be white out there. The bare trees stand out against the white like sentinels demanding we pay homage. Father Winter is definitely in his prime.
We are past Mid Winter now though so the days grow ever so slightly longer each day. We have just a minute or two more of daylight every day to encourage us to keep looking forward. This is Wisconsin though so who knows how long winter will last….
