The evenings are

I have often remarked that my favourite part of the holidays is the part after the holidays.

Do not mistake me. I looooooooove Christmas.

But in my adulthood, I have come to appreciate the days after – after the wrapping paper is cleared away, after the tree has been taken down, after the chocolate is all gone. (Thank goodness it’s finally all gone. We will not discuss where it went. Shhhh.)

And while we have passed the mid-point of January, for me, there is still a lingering glow from the holidays that I am enjoying.

The weekends are still relatively quiet and slow. The evenings are, for the most part, still spent curled up on the couch slumbering or quietly enjoying a book.

To me, this is winter’s quiet time (crazy weather aside …).

In the lingering glow from the holidays, I am seeing red. And by that I mean I am enjoying a snuggly red blanket, a dramatic red lipstick (I had a bold moment) and cranberries.

Yep. Cranberries.

Truth: I went a little overboard at the grocery store over the holidays and bought enough cranberries to keep everyone in cranberry sauce for the next ten Thanksgivings. Maybe even fifteen.
