Sorry Not Sorry

 Flights are arriving, cookies are baking, evenings are booking up, and I have neglected the blog! Ah, the Holidays.

In an attempt to stay well rested through the next few weeks, I took yesterday, my final Tuesday off that isn't an Eve of some sort, and did absolutely nothing. A snow day. I really should have uploaded pictures of my Christmas decorations, or of the carrot soup I made, or re potting amaryllis to help them re bloom, but no. I stayed in my pajamas, put away laundry, made pancakes for lunch, watched my Real Housewives, and never left the house once. I haven't had a snow day in years!

By 8 o'clock, however, guilt began to sink in and I got busy cleaning up the kitchen, prepping some snacks to have on hand for holiday visitors, baking cookies, cleaning stemware, and dusting the dining room. I really need to work on having a guilt-free snow day. Maybe in January.
While the snow was blowing outside, I was fortunate enough to look at this 'Christmas Story' amaryllis all day long. He's blooming just in time!
