The Luxuries of Winter

Many of us seem to be settling in during this break between holidays. Anno speaks of the joys of finger sandwiches and reading on the couch; Greg has time for books, walks downtown, and introspection.

I thought I'd share my ultimate luxury scenario, which I've been enjoying this afternoon:

1 Sunday New York Times and the leisure to read the whole darned thing if I want to.
1 enormous cup of Celestial Seasonings Sugar Cookie Sleigh Ride tea
1 slice of lemon-blueberry buckle bread defrosted from the height of summer blueberry season and infusing my senses with the taste of summer
1 roaring fire
1 happy family engaged in other activities

Tomorrow craziness will ensue, but more on that tomorrow.

I hope all my blogging friends are having similarly delightful year-end events.

That just sounds absolutely wonderful! My husband has the week between Christmas and New Year's off and I got to enjoy a fabulous nap a few days ago while he and the kids played different games.
