4-day stay-cation begins. Here are my goals:
- Sleep, naps, early to bed.
- Read, head off to the library and take out more books.
- Cook, make cookies, actually cook a meal for dinner that includes a green vegetable.
- Make red velvet chocolate mini cupcakes, put in the freezer, so i can pull them out one at a time for snacks (and eat 6 in one sitting if necessary).
- Clean off desk (or not)
- Run 3 out of 4 days
- Go outside every single day for some reason (well, if running, will have to go out – but in addition to running)
- Buy a reward treat (fuzzy socks?)
- Go to the farmer’s market and come home with some unusual treat food
- Go somewhere new… just take the train a few stops in some random direction and end up somewhere new. just because.
- Daytime baths
- Take my camera outside and actually use it (!)
- Make bread … or maybe cinnamon rolls! yum…
The biggest difference on a stay-cation, for me, is that instead of working in front of my computer, being ever-on — instead i’ll be sitting on the chair in our bedroom, facing the window, with a cup of tea on one side, and a book in my hand. or i’ll be sitting on the couch in the living/dining room, watching my husband work at the dining room table, noticing how many times per hour he looks up to see how I’m doing.
and really, i’m doing fine. i’m in my usual glass-is-half-full state: it’s cold but sunny. i’m tired but happy. I have lots to do but i won’t do most of it.
Team 100: Holding strong at 84 members. Happy day 14 to JG, Moonbeam (10), LilyUK (14), Lynda (60), Brandy (10), DDG (60), and Heidi (28).
I will probably check email 2 or 3 times a day (instead of once an hour). I’m not really ‘gone’… i’m just ‘over there’ …
