Back-to-work Monday:

     There's been so much to gush about over the last few days that no end of things will be left out.

     Goodies: Mary said she'd make 'sandwiches' but instead it was Thanksgiving redux at the Towners on Christmas night. Can't leave out traditional Jesus' Birthday Cake! Nor can I forget the delicious home-made granola she gave me; it's been far too many years since I savored that! And now that I'm back at work, there's the second half of the cookies I brought in to savor, as well as the remnants of my mom's pumpkin bread.

     Gifts: I am very much looking forward to spending the gift cards I got. And the gifts I opened were great as well--already watched some of the extras in 'Up.' And a different sort of 'gift' in getting out to Gerten's for their 50% off all their Christmas stuff sale--it's been years since the 26th fell on a weekend and I could do that! I am really loving the thick crystal snowflake ornament I hung on the wall at work today--far too heavy for a tree, but it's gorgeous here!

     Blessings: Time, a luxurious 3.5 day 'weekend' of dawdling around reading, doing puzzles, watching movies, and working on an art project. So nice to slow down for a few days after the frenzy of preparation. And the blessing of safe travel amid all the craziness of the weather lately.
Where I'm At:
my cubicle
Emotional Status:
hungry cookies!

Glad to hear that you got the chance to relax! I find that work always gets incredibly stressful over the Holidays (then again, I work in retail), and the chance to have "me-time" afterwards is such a gorgeous thing. :)

Hope you get some time to slow down soon! That's my favorite part, and hopefully work will stay relatively quiet for me until January hits...
