At the end of the Season

Well, when I take down the holiday lights this weekend, it will mark the end of Winter Holidays. Pick some. Pick any, pick all. I find myself exhausted by social whirl, that started back around Thanksgiving. Is there such a thing as Too Much Holiday? I don't know. It was great to spend time with lots of old friends, but after a while, you kind of start to flag. It's like fashionable dissipation: you can only keep it up for a certain amount of time. Too much togetherness. Too much food. Too much...well, rain, too...a factor of cabin fever in there, I suspect.

The tree went back into storage last weekend. I really need to set a day for reorganizing the "seasonal junk" closet, because Halloween is currently toppling out every time I do something with the Christmas stuff. And it might be better to just reorg the whole thing, rather than put the rest of the stuff away again, and have to deal with yet another layer, later.

I can feel the days lengthening with a sense of relief. It feels like things are going to be better, this year. I may be speaking too soon, but I can hope. I also have too many people I worry about. For them, I hope for a better new year.

Onward to Candlemas!
