Not an ornament left in the house. Santa rug rolled up and stored. Garland and tinsel packed away in matching bins with red lids (what else?). Sleepless in Seattle on the television, and although I could recite most of that movie from memory, I am drawn to watch it anytime it is on. It soothes me. It puts my mind at rest and buries all of the anxieties I have at the moment. Same with You’ve Got Mail, When Harry Met Sally, Mystic Pizza and Steel Magnolias. So goes my day of relaxation.
This is the first day of the new year. What 2013 will bring my way is a mystery and I just have to wait and see how the story will go. I am waiting with an open mind and willing heart and hope.
Thanks for dinner. I’ve never seen potatoes cooked like that before.
