This is one of my favorite weeks of the year. The pre-Christmas craziness is over and the return to school is still a week off.
I have time. Blessed, wonderful time.
I finished The Man in the High Castle Sunday and am already deep into The Interestings, which I am really enjoying.
Yesterday I undecorated for Christmas. I'll have the boys drag the tree out to the curb this afternoon and that will be that.
I started bringing plants in yesterday. This freakish weather we're having allowed me to procrastinate. There are rumors of temps in the 30s later this week so I'm making room inside for some of the geraniums and other annuals that still look decent and taking cuttings from those that have seen better days.
I've been cleaning and decluttering. Marathoning The West Wing. Crocheting the first 20 rows of a sweater over and over and over. Enjoying the ripping out as much as the putting together.
I've been napping. Ridiculously long naps, all three dogs snuggled in close.
Next week it's back to serious job hunting and selling mom's house. Two enormous tasks I set aside for the holidays.
This week is recharging. Recharging, planning, dreaming. Resting and resetting for the new year.
