It’s 7 a.m. and all is calm in the B. household. I’m the only one stirring. I cherish this early morning quiet time…the calm before the storm. Soon will come the bustle of getting the eggs bennie going for breakfast, opening the gifts, launching into the dinner preparations, doing a bit of visiting, calling far-away friends and family and welcoming dinner guests. For now though, I am loving every minute of my ‘alone time.’
Merry Christmas everybody.
