Christmas is over and the house is quiet. The sun is shining and the sky is a beautiful blue. Does that sound as though I'm trying to write a poem? Although I should find something productive to do on this pretty day, I am at the tail end (fingers crossed) of this cold that is moving ever so slowly through my body. It hasn't been a bad nasty, stay in bed all day, kind of cold. It's just lingering and dragging me down a bit, making me want to stay inside to avoid the chilly wind that we've had. Truly, I figure one more day (again, fingers crossed).
Late yesterday, around 6:00, I discovered there is a Game of Thrones marathon on HBO. I am a person who has never seen one single episode of this show. Nary a one. Unfortunately I missed the first six hours/episodes, but caught the last four episodes of Season 1. Season 2 will air starting at noon today, running for another 10 hours I suppose. All six seasons will air through this Saturday, bringing everyone up to date. Although it's a bit confusing to begin at Episode 7, I really enjoyed it. I'm not quite sure who is who, which brother fathered which offspring, which sister is married to which king/lord/whatever. But I'm getting there. I'm jumping onboard the Game of Thrones adventure.
One of our girls was here for the Christmas weekend and we enjoyed her visit a lot, as always. She had a job offer just before the weekend and is thrilled to be going back to the fashion industry after a bit of time away. It's a brand that has beautiful fashion so I figure I'm in for a transition to silk and satin. No, not really, but they do have beautiful clothes. And next time I need a dress for an occasion, I'll have to tap her employee discount.
I hope you're all finding time to relax and get back to normal days after the holiday. Our holiday goodies are nearly gone, I am finishing leftover Chinese food today, and throughout the week I will gradually put decorations back in their boxes. Normal is a good thing. Thanks for stopping by.

Baby, it's been cold outside. I know, not Iowa cold or Upstate New York cold, but cold still the same. Merry Winter!
