Christmas - The Day After
Next to Christmas day, one of the Mrs’s favorite days is the day after Christmas. Why? The 50% off sale at our local Red Hen boutique of course. ‘Santa Clawson’ seems to keep in mind every year now (provided she hasn’t been naughty) the urgency of the day ahead, and gives her a nice stocking stuffer to help make the day go well.
Today was no different for the Mrs, and she made the best of it. Santa may have a few second thoughts next year after he gets the bill, but that’s a long time off with plenty of time for him to forget the shock he feels when he sees the credit card statement…
It was back to work for me today trying to close out a few last-minute contracts before the end of the year. The weather has been stormy this afternoon, and tonight, helping to end the year with a bang. The highlight of the day, going for a morning walk to Snugs downtown to enjoy a cup of coffee before work and reflect on the past year, and the year ahead.
There will be lots of reflecting this time of year by many of us. Now that Christmas is over, we can look back at 2018 and either be thankful for the great year, have mixed emotions of how well it went, or just be thankful it’s finally over. I’m more in the middle area regarding how the year went. Overall, I would say I’m very thankful and know that 2019 will be a year of challenges, changes, and hopefully, successes.
Tonight, it’s off to the movies with one of our grandsons to see the new, ‘Mrs. Mary Poppins’. It will be tough to match the original, but we’ll see how they do. It looks like a great family film and we’re looking forward to the diversion. I’ll leave you tonight with a clip of the movie trailer for you to see in case you haven’t had a chance to check it out, and remember, there are now only 364 days until we do this all over again…
Love always my friends,
