This was my first full week back at work (full for me, being three days), and it feels like I'm in the flow for the new year. It was a nice week overall. Here are some of the highlights:
A freshly painted office space. Our office suite got a sprucing up over the holidays, with lots of fresh paint and some new furniture. What a great way to start the new year! We all feel like we got a present over the holidays, and it has made coming back to work all the more fun.
"The kids" were here for dinner on Saturday night. Brooklynn wanted someone to read (and re-read, and re-read) a story to her. After I read the book three times, I suggested that her uncles would like to share in the fun. Uncles are a lot better at storytelling, and soon Brooklynn and Bentley and Joey and Sam were all on the sofa, acting out the story. Sweet times.
Keeping a bit of Christmas. I took down all of the Christmas decorations, except for a string of lights in my study and a little lighted tree in the dining room. They will brighten up the dull days of January through March, and are a reminder of the Light of Christmas that is with us year round.
Post-holiday grocery shopping. It's nice to have a cupboard of healthy foods and snacks, with the last of the Christmas sweets pretty much gone.
Dinner and books. Last night, Dan and I went to dinner with my aunt and my dad . My stepmom wasn't feeling well, so she didn't join us. (We missed you, Carol!). We all love books, and love sharing the latest on our reading list. Always a nice way to spend an evening.
How was your week?
