For an academic, the end of the semester is simply brutal, with no way around it. The benefit, however, is that once grades go in, we're done. Completely. No unfinished projects, no meetings, no anything.
I took advantage.
LB, Steu, and I went to visit our friend, Rhys, for two weeks and watched his four-year-old open presents. Can you spot him?
With no television and almost no Internet, I knitted and knitted and knitted, finally finishing the cashmere sleeping socks I'd started in June of 2009.
I went to three different LYS and bought souvenir yarn.
I went junking.
I returned refreshed.
Coming soon: New Year's resolutions.
