When my hubby and I first woke up, it was so quiet we wondered if the rapture had taken place. No bus running on the street below, hardly a car or person anywhere to be seen. It was glorious. I'm fairly certain we'll never experience another day here so quiet. We spent the morning eating a tasty breakfast casserole I'd prepared the night before, opening gifts (several packages all the way from the States) and watching classic Christmas movies, most of which I hadn't seen. Later we went on a long walk to admire the silent city, ate more food and Skyped with our families. My kind of day!
The season seems to be passing so quickly. I want to hang on a couple more weeks, just to make more paper snowflakes, bake another two or three desserts (you can get away with it this time of year) and write the four Christmas cards I never got around to.
But alas, we still have the new year to look forward too. And boy is there a lot to look forward too! Bring on the less-crazy work days, new baby nephew, Europe travels and continued learning in love for the Savior and friends.
