Slow restart

It’s been a slow restart after our long Christmas and New Year’s holidays. That’s probably always been the case, but this year has seemed particularly challenging, for whatever reason—and there are plenty of possible reasons.

It thought that this could be the result of an extended recovery from The Great Affliction. I felt tired long after the illness itself had passed, so it’s possible.

However, we were also very busy the last few days before the holidays ended—that wouldn’t have helped. Plus, it must be said, the years are piling on.

Whatever, this past Monday we resumed more normal schedules, and as I’ve done in previous years, I stayed home all day on Monday to keep the furbabies company. They were certainly subdued without Nigel around. They’re getting back to normal now (and so is my knee—another casualty of the holiday).

We’re also slowly adapting and getting used to being back to more or less normal schedules. I wonder if I’ll be going through this after the next long holiday weekend. I guess I’ll find out.

The photos above and below are of Bella this evening. She was lying on the still-warm concrete next to the garage, and just looked too cute to pass up. That’s not unusual, but the lighting was: The evening sun reflecting off the concrete gave a nice glowing light.

That, too, is normal for this time of year.
