New Year's Day
There is a bit of a gloom around here today. Last night we were watching "The Tudors" on DVD and saw Thomas More executed. I think we should have watched something a bit more cheerful on New Year's Eve. Now my husband is watching "Tinker, Tailor, Soldier Spy" on cable. It's a gloomy story with a gloomy tone. No one smiles or laughs much in that movie.
My husband is a man with a cold. You know what that's like. He's in his bath robe, coughing, his usual bustling self nowhere in sight. I am getting ready to go to the grocery to replenish supplies. The weather is gloomy, too. It's cloudy and colder than freezing. I am all bundled up, ready to go out and face it.
I am determined to lighten things up around here. The Christmas decorations are still up, and I think it's good to leave for a while, as they are cheerful. I will go out and soak up what little sun there is to be had. Of course I am hoping for a happy new year and a visit to a sunny beach some time soon. I hope it's sunny and cheerful where you are!
