It’s the day after Christmas, and I don’t know about you, but I am worn out. Our Christmas gathering last night went on and on, and then I spent a bit of time afterward on my back porch, enjoying a glass of wine while listening to my patio fountain tinkle.
I slept in very late this morning — I was tired — and I’m still feeling the effects f yesterday’s partying. Honestly, I don’t know how some people go out shopping the day after Christmas; I don’t care how good the deals are at the mall. All I want to do is relax.
I just spoke with my lovely boyfriend. He’s still in Minnesota with his folks, and it was good to hear his voice. He’s having a good time up there, despite the frigid temperatures. Yesterday he went sledding, something I have only experienced once, way back when I was nine years old and we spent Christmas in Pittsburgh with my grandparents. That was a while back.
It’s a beautiful day, here in central Florida. The sun is shining and the wind has finally stopped blowing. It’s perfect weather for cycling, so I think after lunch I will ride ten miles, here on the island.
Yesterday was Christmas, and I know not many people worked, but I did. I completed a writing project I started last spring, a 65,000-word novel. I completed the first draft last summer, but then I turned my attention to other projects. Now the entire book has been revised and edited, and it’s ready to submit to a publishing house. I’m very excited about this book; it’s different from any other I have written.
Okay, it’s lunchtime and I have much to do before I hit the road on my bike. So I will wish you all a pleasant Thursday. I hope the sun is shining wherever you might be today.
