Finally Quiet

Christmas is over and now my driveway is filled with snow.  I did one early shoveling pass and Mr. No Game has just gone out for a second pass.  It’s quiet now for the first time in what seems like weeks.  Preparations for Christmas seem to out shout the serenity of the season.  I baked non-stop for days, wrapped present after present, traveled from home to home and  and fretted over what I had bought and brought.  There was Christmas Eve with Mr No Game’s family, Christmas day with mine and the next day spent with a house full of food and friends.  In the end, after all the fret, all was fine and everyone enjoyed the days.
Today though I have the silence and peace that I love this time of year.  Sure the house that is filthy could be cleaned and gifts put away but instead I will savor the day and the slowness.  I have my cup of coffee in my pretty Christmas mug, there is left over clam chowder in the refrigerator for lunch and plenty of movies to watch and book to read.  Tomorrow I’ll have to go to work, comedy always lies ahead and then another year will end and one will begin.  But for today I will be quiet and still.
