Out of the Blue

Hanukkah ends tomorrow and it's less than a week before Christmas. This has me thinking it's time for me to stop thinking of 2017 as being the "new" year. That will probably help avoid confusion when 2018 rolls around in under two weeks. Where does the time go?

your comment made me think blue, i decided to try cooking "seasonally" this year, and more often, focusing on in season vegetables and "traditional" seasonal meals and it really snapped the year into focus for me instead of time feeling fleeting. it also had the knock on effect of making me more agreeable towards holidays at large (i'm generally apathetic at best towards holidays and occasionally forget my own birthday), primarily i guess because i was willing to dive into amitious dishes on the cooking focused holidays like thanksgiving since those are the real opportunities for seasonal meals to shine.

i'm now (like as of an hour ago) apparently in charge of christmas dinner for 4 people and having a nice (albeit modestly proportioned) spread to plan and prepare has actually improved my temper towards the most bullshit holiday of all.
