Even week to week, the House doesn't "adjourn", it goes into recess. The first vote at the first of every session day is to adjourn the previous session day and begin a new one.[Art.] 19. [Adjournment.] The house of representatives shall have the power to adjourn themselves.
June 2, 1784
In practice they do not adjourn until the beginning of the next session as it is too hard to create a new session.
