How we celebrated the day after Thanksgiving:
• Slept late.
•Made waffles and berries for a leisurely late breakfast.
•Finally found new tires for The Boy’s Jeep (at a discount because from a friend who works at Firestone). We’ll all sleep better knowing his highway drives will be that much safer.
•Decorated the Little Free Library for Christmas (berry garland around the post – pretty and understated).
•Saw “The Theory of Everything” at one of our arts houses. Very good film.
•Leftovers for dinner – no cooking!
•Played “Things” until we were so worn out from laughing we had to go to bed.
Today life begins to get back to normal. Chores, errands, extended family visiting, last-minute supply shopping for those returning to college, get-togethers with old high school friends, preparing The Husband’s stuff for another week on the road. The usual chaos.
Tomorrow we get back to a quiet house that stays tidy all the time, while three of its members are far away.
It was a lovely holiday, while it lasted.
