Relaxin' Time Between Holidays

The turkey's been eaten, the presents unwrapped, the guests have returned home, and Kitty and I are snuggled all cozy by our computer this morning. Hubby and I put everything to rights in the house yesterday, so today we can relax and enjoy the quiet after all the happy hubbub.

Outside My Window Today
Skies are so laden with snow you can hardly tell the roof tops from the horizon. No sign of the sun. No sign of the birds. No sign of people in the neighbourhood either. All is still and quiet.

In My Kitchen
Still enjoying some leftovers from Christmas turkey dinner -- making a turkey pot pie for supper tonight. Easy-peasy and yum!

What I'm Reading
Voices, Understanding & Responding to the Language of Heaven by Steve Witt 2007
Cats in May by Doreen Tovey 1959
Hickory Dickory Dock by Agatha Christie
Victoria Magazine, January/February 2010
Artful Blogging Magazine
I still need to find two books for this challenge: a book with a medical condition in the title, and one with a building name. These were more difficult finds for me ... any ideas, anyone?

Project I Need to Finish Before Year's End
The local museum in the home town where I grew up is putting together a local history book for our region. I'm just finishing up the final drafts for my submissions of my grandparents, parents, and myself. It's been an interesting exercise -- amazed at how quickly the old memories started to surface when I began to jot a few ideas down.

Afternoon Snooze With Miss Kitty
Kitty beat me to the napping stage of the day. As per usual, she's curled up in a tight ball on the computer chair behind me, which means I'm starting to lose the feeling in a certain part of my anatomy -- the part that's barely perched on the edge of 'our' chair. I'll go finish that history essay and then see if I can't join Kitty for a sweet afternoon snooze somewhere more comfortable. She'll follow me there.

Stay cozy, everyone!


  1. afternoon snoozes are delightful but I'm waiting for the phone call that says my new grand daughter has been born.

  2. Hi Brenda,

    I am with your cat... snooze in this weather!

    Book with a building name:

    Empire of the Sun (Empire State building)

    Book with a body part:

    The Handmaiden's Tale (Hand)??

    There are two possibilities... :)

    Sounds like you had a wonderful day! Stay snug!



  3. Those local history books are great to have. I received so much help from mine when I did our family tree. They are priceless. Happy New Year to you and yours.

  4. Brenda, sounds like you had a wonderful Christmas! Yummy turkey pot pie!! Glad you were having a great day!

  5. Your day sounds wonderful...I too was tired today after all the hussels of Christmas, in fact I felt like I hit a brick wall but I sat by the fire and enjoyed a new Nora Roberts novel that Santa left in my these kind of days.......:-) Hugs

  6. Hello Brenda, Enjoy the days before the new year begins, how I love these few days after Christmas before I must pack it all up.... the rush is over, no more presents to buy or make, no food to bake, no company coming... it use to be a let-down, but now pure joy! Happy New Year Blessings ~ Violet

  7. L-O-V-E the way you write!
