Tomorrow, the husband and I return back to work. After almost 13 days of lazying around the house and relaxing in PJs whenever possible, it feels near disappointing to think of going back to work. Mind you, I love my job, but getting to stay at home and do whatever you want to sounds funner, right? It bugs me how most of the holidays come in the last two months of the year while the rest of the year has nothing major to make you want to squeal in delight. On the one hand, at least office-goers also get long holidays. On the other hand, once such a holiday is over, you have to wait 11 months for the next.
During the holidays, we watched a LOT of TV and movies. Off the top of my head, some of the movies we watched were The Hobbit, This is 40, Parental Guidance, Love Actually, Blackfish (must watch!), some horror movies, and many others I can't remember now. Right now, we are watching episodes of Haven on Netflix and quite enjoying them.
Five days into the new year and I've been reading some and knitting some. Couple of weeks back, I knitted a sleeve for my Kindle. I love how tiny the basic Kindle is - it fits very easily into my handbag. Last thing I wanted was to get a chunky sleeve or case to wrap around it. The whole point of a tiny ereader vanishes at that point. So I figured I could knit a sleeve for it, keeping it snug and also retaining its size, for the most part. Here are a couple of shots of the kindle sleeve.
Yesterday, I started reading Gail Tsukiyama's Night of Many Dreams. This is the first book I'm reading by this author and I guess the first Japanese-authored book that I'm reading in more than a year. So far, it's off to a good start.
How is your Sunday going?
