the aftermath (26/30)
i use the day to recuperate and relax - the football game is on this afternoon. you know that one where the elephant will probably eating a lot of crow because tiger meat will not be available (alabama vs. auburn for those not familiar with the mascots). i won't watch the game - i will know the results by the moans and groans of my brother watching on the flat screen. this has not been alabama's year.
today's gratitude - having a clean house today to enjoy and relax in this afternoon. the candles burning bright against the gray, sullen day. the memories of the holiday and the planning for the christmas season. now that the turkey has had his due, it's time for the christmas season. now i gather my thoughts about a tree, presents and events at work. it is a good time for the aftermath.
today on my i-pod (extended holiday version) - girl you'll be a woman soon (urge overkill cover), caramel (suzanne vega), son of a preacher man (dusty springfield), angel mine (cowboy junkies), hello it's me (todd rundgren), it's probably me (sting), rebecca (pat mcgee band), easy tonight (five for fighting), the weight (the band), i say a little prayer for you (aretha franklin), he went to paris (jimmy buffet), lover's cross (jim croce), broken (peter searcy), hallelujah (jeff buckley)
