Day 361: Holiday Pains

It snowed for a bit this morning and most of it melted by sundown. We are well on our way to Grey and Muddy.

I also made some pies, potato salad, and got the Christmas Turkey in the brine. In the process, I managed to squash my thumb. There’s a nice bruise blooming under my thumbnail. It hurts pretty good, but I’m glad to be rid of the medication/flu stupor of the past five days.

I still am not feeling festive, despite it being Christmas Eve Eve. I never do and I didn’t expect it to change this year. It feels like just another Saturday. I have noticed that more people aren’t really feeling the holidays this year. 2017 must have been a really hard year for more people than I thought.
