For the next two weeks of the Holidays, I have 4 day weekends. Todd is working at least one of those 4 days each weekend.
I have off Christmas Eve - Eve (the 23rd,) Christmas Eve, Christmas Day & the day after Christmas. Todd has off Christmas Eve-Eve with me, but I have a feeling that I will be preparing for company. I plan on playing with the “granimals” (as we call Lana & Squiggy now-a-days,) helping Todd out with cleaning up the rest of the house as needed (we are already ahead of the game with this!) and then a little bit of cooking. I am going to prepare the artisan bread dough for rolls, the blueberry coffee cake and hash-browns for brunch on Christmas Eve and peel the potatoes to have ready to cook for mashed potatoes for lunner (late lunch – early dinner) on Christmas Eve. Oh, and the apple crisp.
Even though that sounds like a lot of work, I should be done with the preparing for Christmas Eve within an hour or two. And the animals, they will be around with me.
For the New Year, I am taking the 30th off using my last vacation day of the year. Todd will be working that day. Then we have the 31st through the 2nd off together. We will have company the evening of New Years Eve staying the night. But I have the 30th all to myself.
So…I am contemplating what to do on my days of relaxation. I really don’t want to plop my butt in front of the TV and get sucked into it all day. The same goes with the internet. I tend to get “carried away” in the many blog sites I enjoy reading. This may be a great opportunity to get started on my Christmas 2011 gifts (cross stitch) and possibly start reading a book from my Book List.
What do you enjoy doing on your “relaxation days?”I have no hobbies. Well, that’s not true. My hobbies are eating and wine. Both of which I enjoy doing with my husband.
