The day after Christmas was very low key and relaxing. Of course the household's champion relaxers were all feline. There was sacking out on the couch (that's all three- see Jake, cuddled up behind Cookie?):
Here's a better view of the tuxedo boys:
Biscuit, always a ham:
So, aside from hanging out watching the cats, I admired my new Christmas yarn, a handsome selection from my sister's friend at Deep Water Dye Works:
Fingering weight in various blends of merino, cashmere and silk. It's lovely. The leftmost skein is going to be a cowl for my mother. Haven't made a final pattern decision yet, but I've narrowed it down to a few contenders.
I uploaded the photo of my sister's Christmas socks- they were finished Christmas Eve, but well before midnight. Note the leopard print stripes!
That day was the first day in a while that I had off with no deadlines or obligations. So. I finished the book I'd been reading a page at a time over the prior three weeks. Then I read another whole book. Just because I could! And there was a great deal of candy and a few leftover Christmas cookies, and I worked on my sweater and wound up the yarn for the cowl and cast on a new pair of socks. New Year's is a big board gaming weekend at our house, so I wanted to have something on the needles for game knitting.
And now I'm back at work through tomorrow- which they're saying could be snowy- but I have Friday off, so it's a short week. I haven't got as far as thinking about 2017 goals yet, but hey, I've got three more days. Why rush?
And yet more Cookie and Jake cuddling. Just because.
