I realized something the other day. This year, there are five Mondays in the month of November. Monday is my regular day off (I work 10-hour days from Tuesday to Friday), so that’s five days this month that I don’t have to go in to work.
Also, Veteran’s Day, Thanksgiving, and the day after Thanksgiving are all state holidays in November. Tomorrow is the last day that I have to work this month. Times like these make me even more thankful for my full-time permanent salaried position with the state of California.
All of these days off = more time to knit, or crochet, or sew, and do as I please.
