Whether you spent it with family and friends or by yourself, Thanksgiving is now just a memory augmented, if you’re lucky, by leftovers in the fridge. Black Friday has decended and though it isn’t the crazy get up in the middle of the night frenzy it once was, when combined with online shopping and a pandemic, for me it’s just a pause before the real world comes flooding back.
If I keep the television off I feel like I can enjoy a few days of peaceful quiet before it’s time to get back into the thick of things. December will be another run up to crazy and I’m not looking forward to any of it.
I’m not feeling blue exactly, but I’m not feeling cheerful either. I’m just feeling sort of…well…quiet. I think I’ll run with that feeling and see where it leads me.
I hope all of you had a peaceful Thanksgiving, or a peaceful Thursday, whichever you chose, and that we all get through these next few months as unscathed as possible.
Hugs to you all.
