Boxing Day

Good morning! Happy Boxing Day!  I wasn't here yesterday because it was Christmas and I was pulling  loose ends together.

My daughter and her family came over last night for a casual meal and to open their gifts.  I don't usually "do" paper plates but I did last night.  Between her being under the weather from her procedure and my knees and ankles, nobody wanted to deal with dishes so....we didn't.

I am surprised that I didn't have the bah-humbugs once this season.  I changed things up, eliminated the things that caused me stress, stretched it all out so it wasn't so hectic and it worked well for me.

The weather was lovely, a bit overcast yesterday but it was warm.  Today we are supposed to have storms but that is ok too, we are all in and relaxing and safe so it can rain if it wants to.

I hope everybody had a wonderful Christmas.  I am looking forward to making some changes in my everyday life this year. Not resolutions.  Resolutions are meant to be broken.  Like diets.  I am going to try to live a more meaning, thoughtful life in general.  I need to make some new routines to get the things done that I don't like to do and to make time for the things I do like to do without feeling guilty.  So, that will be a challenge but I think I can take it on.

I hope to finish my current  read before the end of the year.  I am disappointed  because I am not enjoying it but I am not so I just want to get it finished.
  
So, off to do some laundry.  Laundry is one of those things I need to get control of.  There are only two of us here.  Seriously.

Have a wonderful boxing day!
