Christmas vacation is officially over. The kids went back to school and Greg went back to work today. It was a really nice long winter break for us but it was also hectic and busy with Christmas being sandwiched between both of my daughter’s birthdays. Today I am taking a few moments to research and write and enjoy a cup of coffee in a peaceful house. My soul needs these quiet moments to regroup and plan for normal life. The sun is shining, light snow is falling like glitter, and it’s a frigid yet beautiful day. I really love winter.
Our field was crystallized this morning.
The calendar has turned to a new year and I am still thinking about goals – I don’t like the word ‘resolution’. It feels like something which is destined to fail. I prefer to stay on a continuous improvement track that flows from year to year. Last year I decided to get more serious about knowing God. I started reading the Bible straight through instead of picking bits and pieces and it has been great. I’m not finished yet – I got stuck in the Old Testament prophets, but I finished the New Testament – so I will continue. Everything I do is affected by my relationship with God and I find that when I devote time to Him, my days are just better.
After my quiet time I will get busy restoring order to the house, meal planning, and fit in a workout before the kids come home from school.
I got a bottle of Envision by mistake in my last order. I think the new year is an appropriate time to use this one, and it smells lovely so I’m going to diffuse it all day and see where my thoughts take me.
