Day 179 — Day one of the holidays — and it was lovely. Got up went for a nice long walk along a different path. Not the usual 30 minute circuit Heather and I usually navigate when I’m working. The air was warm, even though we’d had a helluva storm last night. Lots of thunder and lightning, and, of course, rain. But, other than a couple of slight showers that was supposed to be the end of the 40 days and 40 nights we’ve been enduring.
I did a lot of little things today — made pineapple marmalade, tidied the house, took care of small chores I’ve been putting off since forever. I even found time to read my book outside on the deck a couple of times. (In case you hadn’t figured it out, my deck is my favorite place to be in the summer time.)
For dinner I made crab cakes and salad with asparagus on the side. Of course, I ate it outside. Then I finished off a nice little glass of white zinfandel and read a few more pages of my book before going back out into the garden.
I love not working!
