It may seem like I am running dry on fuel to light my blog fire. But the fact of the matter is that it was a holiday week (last week – The American Thanksgiving weekend) and I made my work week short. We were able to spend some quality time in Memphis with some family. So all in all, the mind was just getting refreshed for a few more weeks of the grind before yet another spell of holidays. Well..I think the last 6 weeks of the year have slowly turned out to be my most favorite time of the year, even though I don’t celebrate Thanksgiving and Christmas. These weeks give me an oppurtunity to be home a little more often than the remaining 46 weeks and more importantly not to work for at least 2 full weeks out of those 6. The weather turning inclement is just a small dampening factor in the general holiday spirit of things. In general, things take quite a big downward spiral once we get back to work in January. Foot deep snow to shovel every other week, bone-chilling weather, some bitter freezing winds, darkness spreading even before 5 PM and not getting to see any kind of sunlight for most of the week because of my crazy work hours – they all are gloomy thoughts that won’t hamper my holiday mood right now.
For now, between Nov and the end of the year, there are gifts to be bought (thankfully only a few), parties to be attended (unthankfully only a few again), hours to be spent with Nakul (there can never be many of those), some nice places to be visited & good unhealthy stuff to be eaten. Who complains? I may even get some ideas to write about. So the dry spell, if you notice any is the holiday effect. Hang in there!
