What Do You Do Between Christmas and New Year's?

Last Update: December 28, 2020

I have a habit of doing something special during the week between Christmas Day and New Year's Day. This isn't a time for planning the new year--I do that regularly on New Year's Day.

So each year I pick a project for this week. Once I recovered a living room chair. Another time I sewed myself a dress, shown here. Sometimes I clean out the kitchen or do a massive cooking project with new recipes. It's usually a domestic project but it doesn't have to be.

This year I thought I was going to tackle my sewing room but I just am not that excited about it. I'm reading Barack Obama's new book, but only in short stints at a time.

So it's going to be something I can't say I'm thrilled about, but I will be pleased when it's done... Cleaning up my office. This pile is only a small part of it.

I was going to do this a couple of months ago, but all I did was look through my piles and pull out some bills to be paid. This time, all will look better and be more logical.

What are you doing this week?

Sorry a bit late to my emails & the New Year has arrived.

As the saying goes - "A new broom sweeps clean"

Time to clean up my office & get organized for 2021.
A new year begins & I plan my course of action to achieve my goals for the year.

I usually do not create New Years Resolutions as nearly all times they may last for a month & wither away - LOL.

COVID 19 has made me rethink how 2021 will proceed.

That should stand you in good sted for the upcoming new year. I shall be tidying my 'office' (which is just my desk) and then getting my email marketing set up and that does excite me.

Hi, Rosana.
Don’t feel bad. You should see my office, a real disorganized disaster!
I like your special project idea.

Hi Rosana, well I have been catching up on my household duties. Not a lot of fun but very necessary.
I would like to start off the New Year fresh.
A new beginning.

All the best,

I set aside one day a week for office work (I am running the office for my husband’s brick and mortar business). This way I don’t get the piles of paperwork to deal with. You can do it Rosanna, 1 piece of paper at the time. The same as eating an elephant: 1 bite at the time. Lots of success for the New Year.
