The Week After Christmas

Unlike most people, my favorite week of the year is the 'week after Christmas'. It is a time of peace and relaxation. Nothing to cook, nothing to wrap, no shopping to do, no cards to write, projects to finish up - no stress and no pressure. It has always been that way and this year is no different.

Yesterday was a day of sitting and watching the snow fall and Big T and The Dude playing in it. They built a massive 6 foot tall 'snow bear' and then wrapped him in 4 strands of Christmas lights. We had about 6" of snow, but my front yard has a large circle (diameter 12') with no snow where they used everything to build the bear.

The Dude got an awesome PC game called 'Bejeweled 3'. Don't buy it - it is truly addicting. It is one of those 'just one more game'. LOL there is no such thing as one more game on it. I see this a.m. it has been installed on Big T's computer as well - at least I'll know where to find him.

Today is earmarked (loosely) as the day to clean the sewing studio. It looks like a disaster and has now for over a month. I don't even want to go in there - it's that bad. I have a choice - clean it or keep the door closed; but if I want to sew, I'll have to clean it. Then I'll reward myself by curling up in front of the fireplace and reading the instructions on how to use my new 'e-reader'.

So, my friends, that is where you'll find me for the rest of the day (or maybe the week if I stop to play 'one more game'). I hope all your holidays were as good as mine and that you got to be with all your loved ones during that time.

Hugs - Marie


  1. I'd rather be playing in my sewing room but today I'm decluttering and getting ready to donate stuff. Where does it all come from? Like your new look!

  2. Hubby Franklin got Luxor 3, which has similar addiction properties as Bejeweled.

    I am supposed to be cleaning up the quilt room as well. After I finish just one more game......really.


  3. I've been playing bejeweled for a couple of years and just got bejeweled 3 last week!! LOVE that game! My daughter and her family are still here so there's still no relaxing til later in the week! Enjoy your favorite week!!

  4. I miss the days when the kids were younger and got games like that and when they went to bed Bob and I would play and play. Too fun.

    I am with you on loving when it is all behind us. It just seems so relaxing to know that there is nothing to look for or prepare or clean for a while now.

    Hope it went well getting your studio all cleaned up and organized again.

  5. Yup, it's gotta get done.
    My sewing area here in the ex-dining room is presentable - still after a couple of weeks.
    The Stash Room is another story, a very sad story.
    It, too, is to the point the door should be close to public viewing. Really should be padlocked.
    BUT, time to organize ! ! !
