Christmas Morning Repose

xmas 700666

It’s Christmas and a feeling of peace and contentment wafts through the air. Everybody is busy with some new toy or gadget; others are casually pulling their loot together to get ready to bring it home. It’s a satisfying thing to know that virtually every business has stopped, for a winter break, and that despite it being Friday the cafe won’t open, and the stores will stay shut.

I like the chill in the air. The sky feels like it is going to storm; a forecast told me that the Midwest was going to be getting a big one. We’ll drive up north, and if it snows tonight, that will be good. It’s Christmas after all, and snow is part of the charm.
