I very much enjoy the holidays, but the time between Thanksgiving and New Years is always breathless, with too much to do and to much to-ing and fro-ing.
I made a bunch of toffee and chocolate clusters for friends and family. I went to Tacoma and Seattle three times in a week. I was supposed to catch up on work while all of my clients were out of the office. I made headway, but catch up? Not so much.
So now we have made it through the holidays, and I am happy to have things getting back to normal.
We’ll have the Christmas tree up for another couple weeks — which means, as far as I’m concerned, we still have the light and beauty of the holidays without the stress.
