Coming Down from the Holidays

It always takes me a few days to get myself back together after the insanity of the holidays.  I love that time of year, but I'm also so ready for the New Year to happen and be over with, so we can all try to get back to our already overbooked routine.

I don't make New Year's resolutions, but I do try to orient myself so I can start working in a direction of a goal.  I feel I need to start spending less time being surrounded by chatter, noise, and music and more time just being.  I realize one of my most favorite times of the day is when I get up earlier than Shug to write my blog post for the day.  While I truly enjoy the blogging part of my early mornings, I have discovered I love the silence, too.

When I let Ruby out into the dark morning after we've been all snuggled up in bed, the cold and the heavy quiet have the most calming and invigorating effect on me.  These opposite feelings are also coupled with a clarity I usually lose once the noise of the day gets into full swing.

Do you have a favorite time of day?  I want to try to recreate this time I enjoy so much throughout the course of my crazy days, even if it's just for a minute or two...!

  1. My favorite time of the day is when I just wake up. I love to lay in my bed and just thank God for another day. Plus, it feels great to flex my muscles and prepare to jump out of bed and onto the cold floor. Sometimes I take my cup of jo outside on the porch and listen to the birds.

    I'm happy the holiday rush is over. I always feel so lost in time. So far, and I know we are only on day six, the feel of this year is mellow. I like it.


Thank you so much for checking out Goldteef! I'd love to hear what you think!
