happy holidays, a merry christmas and very happy new year to everyone out there
our very best wishes today and always
Well, we made it, once again! When all the commotion has died down, everyone is fed and content and the anxiety-fraught lead-up has disappeared like mist over the snow, we can now sit back and reflect over the events of our year. For Across the Bored it was a bang-up, mash-up, rock ‘n’ roll ride to a new reality – the lens on life has been redirected to a different perspective, and with that in mind the Two Cents Tuesday Challenge decrees that this week we veer from the usual (no challenge) and we all – Relax!
Whether you put your feet up, don’t get dressed for the day, do all those things that you wouldn’t the rest of the year, indulge or don’t, do a marathon video catch-up or just plain nothing looking out the window at our wonderful world – We hope that everyone has a well-deserved break this Holiday Season and want to thank each and every follower, reader and casual visitor for making this endeavour one of the more rewarding that 2012 has put on our plate.
As a reminder of how incredibly lucky we all are and how thankful we should be to alive in this most inspiring of times, please have a look at Giacomo Sardelli’s video Further Up Yonder.

For all those who are new readers to Across the Bored, there are guidelines for the challenge (which will begin again in January 2013) on the Two Cents Tuesday Challenge page.

I got away from logging into WP over the past week or so…I just hopped on here to catch up with what you’ve been doing over the past few days. Glad to see I’m not the only blogger taking it easy. I’ll be back over here in 2013 for sure.
Thanks – same for me in your direction. I just couldn’t juggle that many holiday tasks at the same time and still keep my sanity, although the temptation to get in on the challenges was great…
R est from holiday flurry;
E ase of quiet, now that guests have
L eft (with plates of leftovers).
A ll the clean-scented needles are falling–
X mas, played out for another year.
~~To steal a line from “Happy Days”, “I’ve still got it!” love, Caddo
Hope you’ve got some help with the cleanup – Thanks for the poem!
You’re welcome–and I think I’ll just postpone the cleaning till after New Year’s!
Okay, go ahead and laugh at me–I had to read this through a few times, as I was already writing a “relax” acrostic in my head!! Happy New Year to you!! love, Caddo
If you can wrangle your way around that X I will gladly post your “reply”! Have a good one!
Oh, you should know better than to challenge me… It will force me to put down my fork, take a break from non-stop holiday eating! If I come up with something, I’ll stick it in the reply box–thanks!
