This strange lovely week is, of course, the week between Christmas and New Year’s Day. Of course, Andy is going to work tomorrow. But even for him, I bet the week doesn’t feel quite normal. It stands outside of regular time, somehow. It is a time for reflection, for last minute things to do before the old year, 2009, comes to a close. A time to think of plans and goals.
I am putting up a few pictures from Christmas at my house this year. It is so much less than it used to be, but it feels like quite enough. Every Christmas will be different from now on. But I think every Christmas will be good, will be a blessing to us all.
I am making long lists, making plans, and hoping for good things this coming year of 2010. It is a bit silly to realize that I seem to like even numbered years better than odd numbered ones, even though I was born in an odd numbered year! But so it is.
I’m already looking forward to Florida! There is quite a pretty snowfall from last night and today, but already I am thinking of time on the beach! I know I should concentrate more on what is here and now, and enjoy that! And this week, several of my nephews and their families are here, especially Miki and Marian and Baby Lea who live in Budapest. It will be fun to see them again, which I haven’t done since Christof and Sabrina’s wedding in September.
Here are two more Christmas pictures from my house this year, both in the living room. I think I should work on improving my photography this year!
