The new year was not of course delayed, and my celebration of New Year’s was also punctual. But then #2 daughter arrived and we worked a bit slower than normal. I had a dental appointment and an optometrist’s appointment as well, and we went out for meals a time or two. Forget my No Decisions/ No Excuses system.

We had fun.

In the evenings we watched The Hogfather and Agatha Raisin. We did some baking and I heard about all her travels. I continued with my knitting and didn’t clean anything up or put away holiday decorations or anything.

So I am spending this evening in equally luxurious leisure and planning to undecorate the house tomorrow. I’ll sort through the food and get rid of the remaining Evil 6, clear up the living room, and scrub the bathrooms.

It still feels like the new year.
