139/365-2 Where I Stand - May


Today was my first day of my summer break.  I turned all of my grades in Friday afternoon, but today was the first day that I should have gone to work that I didn't.  It was a pretty awesome day!

I got up with Weber and for a change, I made breakfast and his lunch.  When we both leave in the morning, he does both of these chores because I am much slower with my morning routine.  After he left, I sat on the patio with dogs, drank another cup of coffee and wrote my morning pages.  I promised myself a sabbath day today; for the most part, I had that.  I did have to do a few work-type things this morning, but they only took a couple of hours.

Weber had a training meeting today, so, as it turned out, he was able to come home for lunch.  That was a nice and unexpected treat!  And after lunch?  A nap!  It was awesome!  I haven't had an afternoon nap in a long time.  I am fairly sure that it would not take twenty-eight days for that to become a habit.

This evening I took some photos; we went out for Thai food to celebrate Brooke's new job; we went to Target and then came home and watched my all-time favorite movie, 84 Charing Cross Road.

My calm day has given me the opportunity to think about those things that I need to do and want to do during my time off.  I have a list.  I don't know that I will accomplish it all, but I am looking forward to trying!

Summer break is off to a good start.
