I must say, I'm glad that the holidays are over, and we're getting back into a normal routine around here. Here it is Thursday already, and the week seems to have passed by almost unnoticed. Days in the office have been quiet and uneventful, and evenings at home have been domestically tranquil - well, as much as they can be with kids.
My latest project has been completed. I made wine a couple of weeks ago, and it stopped fermenting earlier than it should have because I didn't add enough sugar to the mix. It's moderately awful, but drinkable and alcoholic. Maybe I can use it in some sort of mix. I'll be making another attempt and adjusting my recipe. It's a simple enough thing to do and fulfills my need to "create."
Most of my friends (online) have been traveling during the holidays, so I haven't had much contact with the outside world. Fortunately, my dearest and most faithful friend Z has just returned home, so we should be able to chat again. I look forward to the stories of his travels - after all, if I can't "live" myself, I might as well live vicariously. Another friend, F, also has just returned home from traveling, but he is preparing for a business trip to the U.S. soon, so we expect to be able to meet in person for the first time. I'm very much looking forward to that as well. I expect there will be much talk of politics - as we're both obsessed with the subject - and we'll have a new president in office by then.
