We had a nice New Year's Eve with a great dinner cooked by Anders that the kids stuck around for, before disappearing to parties in Lund. They both came home after lunch today and we had dinner together again. Nice! Especially considering that Martin is leaving in just a few days. Too fast!
It's been a pretty lazy day. We both slept in, and I've been reading and lazing around, doing pretty much nothing, like a real slug. Didn't clean a thing, didn't even do laundry, and took a nap again before Bron started. The kids and I tried to watch Loving Vincent this afternoon but it's not available yet so we ended up watching Sing (an animated film by the same people who did Despicable Me), which was cute and funny but very lightweight.
I'm looking forward to having this week off, actually, though I am waiting for some answers about a presentation I'm in the middle of, and hope I get them, so I can put the finishing touches on it and send it off for review. I'm also waiting for the AWC editor to send me the articles for January's newsletter...we're already late, so I hope she answers soon. I've got plans for things to get done this week, or least things to get started this week, so it won't be a totally lazy week off, but I'm okay with that. I need to go through books and see if there is anything that I want to donate to our AWC media sale at the end of this month. Usually I have several bags of books to donate, but this year, so far, I only have TWO. Reading more on the Kindle has made a difference there!
And I plan to start editing my 2017 LJ book. Plus Anders' mom gave us her sewing machine so I'm hoping to get Martin to help me figure out how to use it tomorrow to repair a couple of pairs of pants. He and Karin both learned how to use one in elementary school, and he claims he still remembers how. I am CLUELESS so I hope he does!
