I am finding joy in this second Christmas of COVID.
Friends have delivered gifts to my porch; I enjoyed a beautiful walk on this warm Christmas Eve, had a good laugh watching tonight's local evening newscast, and am enjoying the relaxation of this restful weekend.
I sit beside a Christmas tree, my Spotify library playing in the background (radio gave me enough seasonal music already for this year), wearing a knit cardigan, and a book to finish reading sitting beside me.
I am blessed with great friends, both old and new. I am thankful for the time I've had with many of them in recent weeks.
There isn't much more to say.

Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays.
