Boxing Day

I have taken the week off from work, some R and R was greatly needed.  Rick's younger sister's husband ended up at the hospital yesterday morning with some heart issues, today he got a stent.
He is doing well and should be home tomorrow.  We went over and spent a little time with them today.  Though they missed Christmas day, the annual Watson family gathering isn't until Saturday so they should be all festive by then.

Tomorrow rain, like 2 to 5 inches for the next couple of days is moving in, so it should be a good day for getting the house in order.  Rick is working this week, so he will be in and out.

These days after Christmas are one of my favorite parts of the holidays.  The decorations are still out, the mood is still festive but now I can be still and enjoy the beauty of everything.  Last night before we went to bed, I turned out all the lights except those on the trees and we sat by candlelight/tree light just enjoying the silence and beauty of the lights.  While we were out and about today, people just seemed less frantic, moving slowing and smiling.

Today is Boxing Day if you live in the UK.  Last year, our great niece and nephew ( who were living in London at the time) brought us candy from the UK, it was so tasty.  We celebrated Boxing Day last year with our candy, this year, just a nice up of tea and biscuits.

I hope your Christmas  was a good one, we are getting ready to do our vision boards and think about our goals and a plan to meet them for 2019.  2018 has been kind to us, I hope 2019 continues that path.  Get some rest, enjoy your time with family and friends and if you are like us, about to face monsoonal rains...stay dry.

Goodnight, Sweet dreams


  1. I've been doing a lot of R&R lately. We spent Christmas at my daughter, and had a wonderful time. Boxing Day was quiet and I worked on a big puzzle. It's a tradition for down time. Wow, you're sure are getting a lot of rain.
    Stay dry. Hugs, Julia

  2. It's great you have a week of R and R, we all need it now and then. Rest, relaxation, and rejuvenation is wonderful and a delightful part of the holidays. Rain expected here too but thankfully not monsoonal. Hope you have a renewing day!
