This has been a very busy year. At times it felt there has barely a moment to breath. So today I am grateful most for a day of rest. To sit quiet in my home with a glass of wine. Hands occupied with crochet. My mind absorbing nothing more then the ideal details from a Selected Short. In the other room, the Dallas Cowboys play. Soon the smell of roast duck will begin to waft from the kitchen. Like anything else this day will not last. While it does, I will enjoy it fully and give thanks. May you also have peace this holiday.
