05:54 pm - Day #16, 30 Days of Appreciation
It's Saturday. (And it's Who-Day, but the Saturday part is important.)

Last week was seriously strangling, with new appointments and emergency emails and "oh hey do this" and other kudzu-like invasions of time and space. This morning, after walking Master Danger and starting a load of clothes, I sat down and looked at my calendar for next week, and all I saw was horrifying.

So I have taken today off.

By that I mean that I've done that laundry, and worked out, and taken Master Danger out in the drizzly afternoon, and spoken on the phone to various family members, but that's about it. No proper work of any kind has been attempted.

Maybe, I say maybe I'll clear out a closet and make a grocery list for tomorrow (when there also will be work and work and work), but I won't push myself.

Or maybe I'll just sit quietly for a bit and start a reread of The Mitford Girls, since the last of the Mitford sisters passed away this week.

I appreciate the time. I really do.

May you have time to do what you like this weekend!

Mitford Girls! No more work. Closets can wait--they're not going anywhere.

And after a morning of grading, an afternoon of buying garden stuff and stuff to cook was a pleasure. I'm not clicking any other tabs for fear of that kudzu sending out its tendrils...

Enjoy your read.

Reading and then the Doctor -- that'll work.

(I actually did a Rosetta Stone French unit, and I deserve the respite!)

Good thoughts for avoiding your own kudzu!

Happy Sunday evening to you! My day was not restful, but then I didn't expect it to be.;)

Have a good week! [hugs]
