“Some old-fashioned things like fresh air and sunshine are hard to beat. In our mad rush for progress and modern improvements let's be sure we take along with us all the old-fashioned things worth while.” Laura Ingalls Wilder

There's a hush .. in my home today.  The holidays are over.  Everybody is back to their respective places.   I feel a bit like a high school student that just graduated.  Knowing that there is work ahead (house cleaning, gardening, canning, etc.) ... but for today, I will bask in giddiness and sip tea any hour of the day, decide whether or not to make dinner ... wash laundry (yes/no) NO!  A day to relax and ponder what the new year might hold.  Tomorrow my feet will be planted firmly on the ground and I'll roll up my sleeves and put on my apron.  Until then .... p.e.a.c.e  o.u.t.

Sounds like a wonderful way to reflect upon the holidays and of course relax before the sleeves go up!
