Notice – Time Away

Dear readers, I will be taking Dec 24-26 off to be with family and friends. I am not going to schedule ahead posts for those days because frankly, I am a bit exhausted at the moment. I will still do all of my posts (My Daily Tarot, The Daily Me, and The Sandbox challenges) for the next two days, but there will be none those three days. All will resume again on the 27th.

As some know, today is actually my December holiday – Winter Solstice known as Yule – and I am spending it alone, just messing around on the computer. It’s not much fun celebrating alone, as no one else around me recognizes Winter Solstice as a holiday. As I’ve already scheduled the remaining two days’ posts, this is the last actual post I will be making until the 27th, so….

To my Pagan friends, Best Wishes for a lovely, festive Yule.

For my Jewish friends, Happy Chanukah

For my Christian friends, Merry Christmas

For all others, whatever festive day you celebrate around the world this December, my dear friends, may it be filled with love, laughter, friendship, and family.
