Reindeer Rest

Shopping completed, gifts opened, cheer shared with good friends and reindeer are at rest. This one's happy to be on this side of the glass this morning. Now a look back on yesterday here: we had a wonderful time at our home with close friends, lots of stories, laughter and meaningful toasts. Now, the wild ride continues for another week with the year and the decade in review stories. My surgery has been rescheduled for the first of the year, and hopefully, a week of tying up some loose ends and working on a project will keep my mind occupied. A mind occupied is a mind positive, upbeat and ready. That's me! At least how I feel right now.

  1. I suppose the poor reindeer would need a good rest after racing acroos the skies on Christmas Eve.
    Cheers.
