The Last Night

It is the last night of my vacation. It has been good. I haven't accomplished as much as I had hoped but I have rested. Even sleeping quite alot longer than I usually do. Now the clocks are reset to normal time, and my working year will start tomorrow morning. In a week there is a new fiscal year too, so one week of catching up with everything from my month of absence, as well as preparing end of month+end of year documents.

I am not sure if I am looking forwards to getting back to work - while the absence hasn't been long enough to stop me from thinking about work daily and dreaming about it nightly, it has been long enough to get some perspective. But I expect that in a week or two I will be just as focused as usual, living for my job. And I am not all that sure that is a bad thing, even though a lot of people seem to think so.

So how did I spend the last day of my holiday?
Laundry, folding away laundry, tidying up a bit in my bedroom, vacuum cleaning, cooking some lunches for the coming day, generally clearing out rubble so I can have a bit of a fresh start of my year. Also I watched an episode of Midsomer Murders, finished knitting a lonely mitten (I have not enough yarn for the second), and tried to solve a crossword in Swedish, and re-read Nick Sagan's "Idlewild". Not a very exciting finish but one that feels satisfying enough!
