It's Monday morning and I'm not at work! Instead, I slept in (for me that means 7:00), drank two cups of coffee by the fire, ran three miles in the cool crisp morning, walked the dog and showered.
Now, I have Food Network on in the background while I am busy in the kitchen. But not the kind of busy that makes me frustrated. The kind that puts a smile on my face and a warmth down deep in my soul.
My house is filled with the scent of the holidays. I made cinnamon ornaments last night. For breakfast this morning I made eggnog French toast. All I have planned for the rest of the day is Hallmark Christmas movies. Anything else I do will be unplanned frivolity.
Holiday Season 2017, welcome!
