That time between Christmas and New Years

Zee and I just got home yesterday from our respective Christmases (he with his family, mine with the orphans). Tomorrow we leave for a New Years adventure. Today though? Today we've holed up together and it's been rather sweet. I love this time, when we don't have too much to do. Sleeping in, coffee from the Christmas percolator, long walks across bridges down by the river... It's cold, but the sky is blue and it hasn't yet snowed where we are. Later we'll go cook dinner, perhaps see a movie. I'm aware that today things are very easy, simple. It feels kind of like stolen time, and I know that once we're back in the New Year it'll be all on, with jobs and social events and plans...

It's nice to have to day just for us.
