Is it wimpy of me to let go of my developing schedule only two days into it? It just somehow feels wrong not to acknowledge the last day of Christmas with a day off. In years past, we never started school until after Epiphany proper, after the 6th of January, but I was seeing how little we were getting done throughout Advent, and I thought we ought to try to take the week before and the week after Christmas off, then try to get back to work. But today I will toss the schedule aside, and we will bake a simple Bundt cake, color pictures of the Magi, and I will fold some window stars to put up and brighten our short winter days.
A blessed Epiphany to you!
