Kris's Garden Leave Adventure

I’ve never been on “garden leave” before. I’m having a great time so far. Yesterday for my first day off, I had a list of chores that needed to be done.

Today I did ALL the laundry, FaceTimed with my Dad and Step-Mom, cleaned the kitchen (including the range hood), and watched three episodes of Mad Men while knitting. I bought (and then returned) an induction cooker from Harvey Norman. (It’s a long story. Another day.) I also made a batch of breakfast sausage for myself and cooked a ham hock for our dinner tomorrow night. Finally, I managed to get us a booking for est., where we had a lovely dinner tonight. Phew.

Tomorrow’s plan: iron all the clothes, wash the windows and curtains, write a bunch of blog posts, and confirm all the details for a last minute trip to the US next week. I have more items on my To Do list when I’m on vacation than I do when I’m working!
