I have been afforded a weekend of true days off. Mmmm.
Hubby has been house bound with the puny punkin' all week long. Bless him. This morning I quickly assessed our checkbook and decided it would be the height of wisdom for me to become house bound and thus reduce our tendency for weekend expenditures. Rescheduled the massage and the doctor's checkup that snuck up on me. This affords me the luxury that no amount of money can buy: time at home with no obligations to leave the house for 3 (three!) whole days!!! (Perhaps with the small exception of going running with the Pacers on Sat. morning.) I have a mental list (that would run the length of me if I wrote it out) of things that need to be done around the house. That, I'm sure will occupy me nicely. If I grow tired of being productive, I visited the library yesterday for a weekend stock of movies and books. Oh yes, I'm sure I'll have no end of things to do.
Bonus: I just looked out the window and it's raining. One of my favorite things is to be at home on a rainy day.
I've been thinking lately of making a list of the things I love. I've already started the list and hope to figure out how to post it on the side of my site. Another goal I have that I shall start at the new year is to keep a list of books that I've read. I attempted that this year but quickly lost track. I'd love to know how many books I read in a year. It would help me also organize my reading better. I sometimes read a book that is part of a series or by an author that I really like and after returning it to the library I neither remember the title or the author's name. Makes it difficult to go back for more by that author. I also think I need a list of classics that I "need" to read. I just recently read "To Kill a Mockingbird" and loved it so much. "The Scarlet Letter" has been highly recommended and I am also interested in "Walden Pond". Feel free to recommend your favorites.
