Whether at a mall, specialty shop, or online, the post-Christmas sales are sublime. Just as an avid fisherman might post a “gone fishing” sign, this blog reveals my preoccupation with shopping rather than word-smithing.

With cash in my pocket, a Starbucks gift card, and a couple of credit cards I’m wading my way through the annual bliss of after-Christmas sales. Hip-hi-hurrah for me and thee… for you may receive one of these off-price treasures. Wishing you peace and joy in the final days of 2022 and hope for everything to be better next year. May 2023 be so bright you’ll be compelled to daily wear shades!

Take a break, refresh your spirits, and take some time away from the fray. May everything work out, spruced up, and shiny and bright again.

And may the Spirit of Refreshment last… Happy New Year!
