Friday I took the day off - totally. Well, I still had to drive Bram to catch his car pool; leaving the house at 7:05 and getting back by 7:50 or so, but then I went back to bed and slept until 10:30! In the afternoon I went to Chapters and just browsed for a bit. I don't know when I've done that - not for ages, anyway.
Then I ignored everything else on my To Do list for the entire day. It felt really good. I was thinking about it, and I can't remember when I last had a day totally off since maybe Easter break. I finished work the end of June, then I was really busy getting ready for the VBS and Mission 6:10; and I had house guests for most of July. I started work August 1 and worked for the library until Sept. 15 (a Saturday), then started working for SIAST Sept. 17. Not much down time there. This past week I worked at catching up on everything that needed to be done, and Friday I had pretty much caught up. I believe that's called a holiday (at least in Canada it is). Friday I took a holiday day. Very nice. I wouldn't mind doing that again. (Now Walt and Ruth and my parents are off on a real holiday - somewhere like the photo below, but I'll be grateful for what I've got.)
Friday night I had house guests again (Leslie and Loopie are remodelling and I hosted their two boarders for two days, and Loopie and Bailey for one night, but that was fine). I had the day off anyway.
