The Holiday Chicks have been quiet for a bit around here. Everything that has been going on in this world, the country, have put a damper on my celebratory enthusiasm. BDB, master holiday celebrator, never needs a reason to celebrate holidays but lately I have just felt sad. Maybe sad is not the right word. More like apathetic. This year in quarantine has caused me to go within. I’ve ignored the usual holidays and celebrations and become more, I guess, insular. Winter is here. It’s cold. Even for Southeastern North Carolina. It’s time to cuddle up and get cozy. Let us read books, drink tea and plan gardens!!!
I’ve been spending a lot of time with my hubby, my mom and the dogs. They are my bubble or pod. We celebrated the winter holidays together at my home. Just the three of us and four dogs. It was nice. Lots of video calls and watching Christmas movies. Quiet. We have worked on our house and done a lot of projects and stayed put since September. The lack of holiday travel this year was kind of a blessing. Peaceful.
Our little Jack Russel has become a very old man in the past year.
I have been concentrating more on him then thinking about celebrating. But holidays are important. Like the seasons, they mark the passing of time. They remind us that it is good to pause and honor the day, week, season that is happening around you.
Life is complicated and confusing right now. But a little celebrating is good for the soul. I’m going to take my own advice and get celebrating. Holiday Chicks style!!! -MWS
