the holly and the ivy
I hope you had the most wonderful of holidays! I have to say, we had one of the best in years, lots of family time, plenty of good food and much laughter. Our two out-of-town children just left this morning, and now the house seems quiet and a little bit empty.
Today, finally, the snow has arrived. It is blustery and very cold, and I plan to make a fire and grab a book and enjoy a little down time. I always look forward to this week between Christmas and New Year’s, one of the only times I am able to take a full week off from work and simply relax.
I am looking forward to a new year, not that 2011 was a bad year, but for some reason, it felt like an off year. I felt slightly out of step right from the beginning, and I am ready to clear my dance card and start again, fresh.
I don’t really believe in resolutions, it always feels like setting myself up for failure. But I did choose a word, and that was “words.” I want to write more. To focus on that more. To devote more time to it.
And I want to stop running out of time and start running into it.
That’s it, exactly.
With arms wide open.
What are your plans for the New Year?
