The Tuesday Tireds

Snow is falling.  The sky and the ground bleed into one another as they are practically the same hue right now.

And I am tired.

So far, January has been a good month. I’ve been reading, organizing, scanning, thinking, considering and rearranging.

Today it is 1/11/11 and the month is nearly to the halfway point already! I still have much to do, many things to work on before the month is up.  But I’m not fretting. It will get done.  Maybe I’m tired because of all this information I am trying to shove into my brain. There are so many things I want to learn and read and do.  It can be a bit overwhelming at times-overwhelming in a good way.

Right now though, I would love to just lay down on my bed and pull my two afghans – each one made by one of my grandmas- up over me and fall fast asleep. The afghans are like perpetual hugs from two dear souls – one I am fortunate to still have around, the other died years ago and not a day goes by that I don’t think of her and miss her.

Snow days are perfect days for naps, hot cocoa, reading and sitting in front of a crackling fire.  Here’s to the Tuesday Tireds, napping under a cozy afghan and enjoying these quiet, snowy, winter days! Hope you’re having a good one!

  1. What a lovely description of your afghans. Two warm hugs.

    I’m glad your January is rolling on and you’re doing well, Tracy. I just want happiness and progress for you and this looks to be our year 🙂

  2. This is EXACTLY how i felt yesterday. I was at work but my body and mind were craving something else — a good book and a chance to sit on the couch and watch the snow fall. I wish our culture embraced the extremes of the seasons more, and allowed a little time to sit back and reflect on them. Instead, we have to jump in the car despite the ice and snow to make it to some appointment we won’t even remember next week.

    But your post–your post gave me what I didn’t get yesterday.

  3. I love the thought of those afghans. And I think we need the tireds-days. No one can keep going for very long without one. (Or at least a couple of tireds-hours.)
