J and I are very lucky to work where our companies shut down between Christmas and New Year's. We also had a few days of vacation we had to use. So J has been off since last Thursday, and I am celebrating my first full day of vacation. We don't have to go back to work until January 4. Yikes!
Most of our time is being spent cleaning and organizing, but it's an annual tradition around here. It's nice to end the holiday season and go back to work knowing we won't get lost in the mess that was in our basement, or being able to find ketchup in the pantry without sending in a hunting expedition.
And I can catch up on my knitting. My secret scarf is getting there, and I have some more slippers to knit. The weather outside is cold and windy, so it's a perfect time of year to get all this done.
