Today is the first day I can do nothing and feel good about it. The past two weeks have been sort of a blur--work, social obligations, commitments took up all my time. I must learn to say no. What little free time I had, I used for sleep. And today, I slept all day, and it feels good. I need groceries, but right now, I'm just going to do nothing, maybe watch some tv and surf the net. I can live off pancakes for one more day.
I can't believe it's September all ready. Where has the time gone? But it feels like September. Gone are the long days of summer, with the scorching heat and long hours of the day. Even the sun seems to rise later and sets much faster, eager to end its day and go home and do whatever it does when it's not working. The rains have finally come. And it's refreshing. It's a small respite, but a welcomed one. I'm trying not to think that the year is more than half over. For now, I'm just enjoying the nice change in weather and the opportunity to do nothing at all.
Tomorrow, I'll buy groceries--or maybe not. I do have a pack of crackers in the cupboards I can eat when I run out of pancakes.
